Mission: Sweet Dreams for Kids is a nonprofit organization that donates new pajamas to kids in the hospital. We started Sweet Dreams for Kids after our youngest child, who is now 9 years old, was born with cancer. She is our walking miracle and inspires people every single day. We feel cute, cozy, and comfortable pajamas help take the “ICK” out of being SICK. We want to bring smiles to kids in the hospital, and bring a little feeling of home when they have to be in the hospital. We know it does not take away any of the worries when a child is sick, but we hope it brings a little piece of comfort to the child and the family. Our dream is for every single Children’s hospital to be filled with new, bright, and fun pajamas instead of hospital ones. For more information on how to help go to www.sweetdreamsforkids.org, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sweet-Dreams-For-Kids/177039218990857 or email Wendy@sweetdreamsforkids.org.
Results: We have donated over 10,000 pairs of new pajamas to many Children’s hospitals in Minnesota and nationwide

Sweet Dreams for Kids is literally an organization built out of love. Wendy used her difficult experiences and turned them into something positive for people going through similar situations. Wendy puts all of her love into this organization and it shows. Her devotion to the cause and helping children feel better by providing them new pajamas when they are sick and in the hospital is what makes Sweet Dreams for Kids such a wonderful organization. Sweet Dreams for Kids is a wonderful nonprofit and its founder, Wendy, is a wonderful individual. All that is done is done out of true love and kindness.

This is a great organization. They provide pajamas to hospitalized children throughout the US. It is done out of love by Wendy. She does it from her heart to help hospitalized children feel better by getting new pajamas. Now, that is a great non-profit!

Sweet Dreams for kids is one of those organizations that seem like they're doing a small favor, but in reality, it's a huge help for the kids to feel a little "homey" while being surrounded by white, sterile machines. I had the privilege of volunteering with them and it felt good to see the smiling faces looking back at me while I gave them the pajamas.

As someone who has long worked in non-profit, I am always most pleased to see a non-profit that manages to do great things, with little administrative cost. Sweet Dreams for Kids is exactly such an impressive operation, in that a family started it as a family project, and continues to run largely as such, despite the fact that the impact of their (now not so little) operation is well into the thousands of clients served, all over the country. Having started as a family project, in direct response to their own child having spent years in hospital gowns, Sweet Dreams for Kids continues to collect brand new pajamas and donate them to pediatric treatment facilities, through generous PJ drive volunteers all over the country, so that ill children can have the sweet dreams that comfy PJs bring. Wendy, the driving force behind SDFK, can turn any willing volunteer into a successful PJ Drive Volunteer Admin, and indeed this Minnesota based charity has put PJs on hospitalized children, far and wide, from California to Virginia, Minnesota to Texas. Schools, youth groups and worksites have all joined in this great work, and truly the limiting factor to PJ drives is only the imagination of someone wishing to help, so if this sounds like a great charity to you, just do it! Contact SDFK and learn how to conduct a PJ drive that will help hundreds of children in your own area to smile!
