July 2016

 
 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition
Note from a Sweet Dream Mom:

"We have been living with friends since last October sleeping on their floor.  We now have a low income house--what a blessing.  The house has nothing in it---but now my three children have new bedding and each have a blow up mattress to call their own!  I haven't seen my children smile like this in months and months--this is exciting to see them so happy and smiling!!  Thank you for helping our family start again!"

You can make a difference every Month!
 You can make a monthly automatic donation  on our Website thru PayPal, you
could donate $50 each month this would provide one child with their own new "Sweet Dream Bag", beautiful Comforter, twin sheet set, new fluffy pillow, fleece blanket to cuddle up in, toothbrush & toothpaste, a little toy to love and their own personalize book about how awesome they are!  When a child is able to choose their own Sweet Dream Bag it makes a lasting difference in their lives.  They finally have a choice---they got to choose their own new bedding that they love!  They now have someplace to call their very own...they can sleep, do homework or just feel cared about as they sit on their new comforter!!  Many case workers say the children are doing better in school after they get a Sweet Dream Bag.  Also they say the children are able to adjust to their new surroundings and settle down once they get their new bedding.  Just take some time to think if you could make a commitment once a month or every other month to provide a child with their own "Sweet Dream Bag"!  They will be able to snuggle up in their bed each and every night for a long, long time just because of your love and caring!!
