Sweet Dream In A Bag


April 2016

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition
Note from a volunteer:
"I volunteered last night for your Sweet Dream Gifting Event in Colorado Springs.  This was my first exposure to your program, and I was greatly impacted by how this loving gesture is able to touch so many lives in such a short time.  I was lucky enough to meet both Wayne and Susan - they are a great example of what giving should be about.  Thank you for this wonderful experience!  God bless you and all you do! "
Thank you for the Beanie Babies
We have had such a great response to people giving Sweet Dream their Beanie Babies...we know it is hard to part with these collections of these wonderful, little, stuffed animals, but it means so much to these children to find a little, loveable toy in their Sweet Dream Bag!  There have been people from other states that have mailed them to us, people in other cities in Colorado and lots of people right here in the metro area providing their collections to Sweet Dream!  Thank you so much.  Know we always have an on going need for Beanie Babies.
Caring for the Families

The Castle Rock Kiwanis club sponsors the K-Kids Club in Castle Rock and they provided the money for the K-Kids to put together "Domestic Violence Bags Project".  The K-Kids packed the Small Sweet Dream containing a soft fleece throw, a beanie baby stuffed animal to love and a card with with positive and encouraging words.  When children and parents flee in a hurry they come to the safe shelter with nothing.  The director at the shelter lay out several "Small Sweet Dream" bags for the kids to choose from, this gives the child a little control and comfort.  Their name is written on the sticker on the bag and then they have something that is theirs' to keep in this difficult time.  As time goes on the parent may decide to flee for good from the domestic violence and we will meet them again when they are re-building their lives. Then the children will choose a "Large, complete Sweet Dream Bag", containing all the bedding they will need for their new home.
The DTC Kiwanis Club sponsors the Builders Club at I Am Academy and provides financial help.  The I Am Academy Builders Club assembled the the Mom and Dad mugs for the parents of the children we serve.  The mugs are a small little gift for the parents but it touches them deeply to think someone cares about them too!

    Partnering with Sweet Dream for Conferences & Mission Projects


It is so exciting that organizations and churches are partnering with Sweet Dream and raising the money to pay for the materials that go into the Sweet Dream Bag.  It takes about $50 worth of materials to make these complete bags for the children.  If a church or organization can raise 50% of the funds we will come and provide a great 2-3 hours of joy, serving and giving for each of your members and their families.  We are so thankful for each church and organization that has seen the benefit and excitement to invest in having a Sweet Dream Packing Project!  Just give Susie a call if you want more information  303-507-2098


On Tuesday, April 27 we will be gifting over 50 children with their own Sweet Dream Bags.  We need volunteers for this day-time event.  Volunteers will need to arrive at 11 am to help set up and for a short training.  The event will start at 11:30 am., this event is at the Jefferson County Head Start School, 5150 Allison St., Arvada, CO 80002.  This will such a fun event with all these 3-5 year olds....they are always so excited and eager to have you read their book to them!!!  Let us know if you can enjoy a couple of hours helping these precious children pick their own Sweet Dream Bag!
