The idea for the World Children’s Center comes from Atlanta businessman Donald H. Whitney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corporate Sports Unlimited (CSU), Corporate Events and Meetings and Founder and President of The United States 10K Classic. For most of his life, Don has had a passion for serving others and has dreamed about a safe haven where needy children from around the world can live in peace, free from both hunger and want.

"At the age of 13 a television info commercial on the welfare of children worldwide changed my world and my heart was crushed by the sight of starving and hurting children. At that moment, I made a commitment that I would make a difference in the lives of children and began sponsoring (writing and sending financial support) to a child that I wanted to provide some hope for. Today, my wife and I are blessed to be able to continue this by sponsoring twenty-one (21) children in different organizations around the world."
