Sweet Dream In A Bag


March 2016

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition

Beanie Babies Needed
We are in need of Beanie might know someone who has a collection sitting in a plastic tote...just waiting to be loved each night.  Every bag we put together has a precious, lovable beanie baby in it so each child will have their own toy to girl when she took her toy out of the Sweet Dream Bag said, "Now I have 3 toys!"  These children get so excited to have something soft to love and cuddle up with!  So ask around...there may be people with Beanie Baby Collections just needing a NEW HOME!!
Note from the Kiwanis Club of Rockies:
"Thank you so much for sharing Sweet Dream In a Bag!  Your program is truly a blessing to all who are touched by it.  Within the "culture of poverty" there is the belief that it's important to keep up appearances and not look poor.  You have found a way to bypass that and give these families hope.  Thank you!  We look forward to working with you soon. "
A Beautiful Gift...That Will Last!

Sweet Dream Bags contain New Bedding:  Twin Sheet Set, Twin Fleece Blanket, Fluffy Bed Pillow, Twin Comforter, a Little Toy to love, Toothbrush & Toothpaste and a Personalized Booklet  named "Your are Awesome" all packed in a reusable, vinyl, zipper bag.
Each Sweet Dream Bag cost approximately only $50 to complete, because we shop at sales and buy fleece blankets in large quantities.  If bedding bag items were purchased at a retail store cost price it would be over $100.  We want to give each child new bedding of their own...we shop carefully and are so thankful for the many donors that provide funds or shop to provide comforters, sheet sets, toothbrushes/toothpaste, pillows---each bag is filled with your hope and caring.  The children will sleep cozy and comforted for many, many nights in their Sweet Dream bedding!!!  
We are making a difference in each child's life!

   SOAR Includes Project for Sweet Dream into their Conference


SOAR ,Serving Active Adult Ministry in the Rocky Mt. District--(Lutheran Organization) decided to include  Sweet Dream in a Bag packing project to their One Day Seminar on Saturday, February 13.  There were 120 people packing bags, cutting ribbon and preparing the Sweet Dream Bags for the children.....with the help from Thrivent Financial Services and an added fee to the conference registration...SOAR was able to provide 50% of the cost of the material of the bedding that was packed...what a blessing to be able to make more Sweet Dream Bags for these children that have so little!!  Thank you to all that were willing to organize, help fund and pack Sweet Dream  bags at  this conference!!!
