Another Spontaneous Evening at Sweet Dream
 

While gifting children with bedding at a Sweet Dream Event I noticed a young girl (7-9 years old) peering through the door watching all the children excitedly receiving their wonderful new bedding.  I assumed she was waiting for her turn to get bedding.  After an hour I finally asked her if she was on the list to get bedding and she sadly said no.  I asked her which bedding bag she would choose if she had a choice and she quickly said that pink one.  Later I found her mother and asked her if her daughter could use bedding, and she said yes that would make her happy.  When I told the little girl she could have the bedding set, her eyes lit up and she ran to get her pink bedding.  Later a volunteer read the story about her bed being a treasure chest and her being a treasure.  The little girl had a big smile and felt like a happy special treasure with her new beautiful warm bedding.

Need Bronco Pillowcases Made
 

We have a fabric and directions to make Bronco Pillowcases -- now we just need someone to sew them.  We put these pillowcases with solid dark blue comforters and they are a big hit with the boys (and some girls!!)  So if you like to sew  -- we have a project for you or you and a few friends!!

Our Needs:

Our first order of over 300 twin fleece blankets from Northeast Fleece Company , a great company, where are able to purchase each blanket for about $9, but we have to order them in bulk.  Each order will be over $3,000.  Funding is needed before we order the blankets. 

Thankful for all our donors

Sweet Dream continues to expand --
We are talking with Posada, an housing agency in Pueblo who will partner with Sweet Dream to gift bedding to 10 families who are moving to permanent housing and need bedding for their children. The agency hopes to quickly schedule Treasure Time gifting event this week.

The Denver Tech Center Kiwanis Club has graciously decided to become a corporate sponsor for Sweet Dream.  It is wonderful that the club has made this commitment. If you know of businesses, clubs and individuals who may to become partners with us, have them contact us. Please know how much we appreciate each of you as you have made Sweet Dream a reality and a growing non-profit that serves these precious children that have so very little -- it's going to take us all, as we see the need growing every day!!!
