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 10 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

Reviews for Sweet Dreams for Kids

Sweet Dreams for Kids have sent my daughter PJs 4 times now. It was so sweet of them. She loves to take them to the hospital. This lady and her entire family are always thinking of other children and trying to make them comfortable it is fun for kids to get new pajamas. Especially when they're sick in the hospital and want to bring their own pajamas with them. The kids always leave a personal note or picture with the child's Name. Thank you Wendy and family and sweet dreams for kids.

Our daughter Alexa has been fighting BRAIN CANCER since she was 14 months old she is now 10 yrs.
when she received her Pink monkey Pajama nightgown, it made her very happy. She was smiling and able to take them to the hospital for her next inpatient stay.
............ Its the little things in life that mean so much.
These are hand made with Love and we felt that when we opened them..

A little glimpse of hope fills your heart when you hold your ill child and you see comfy jammies on him as you cuddle, and you know that others are cheering for your child. Thank you for loving me and my Henry John.

My daughter, Hailey, received a pair of pajamas from Sweet Dreams for kids last year months before she passed away. They are now something we are able to hold close to us to feel her presence. I cannot thank this organization enough for the amazing gift they give to these sick children.

My daughter received 2 pairs of pajamas from this amazing woman.. She received her first pair for a surgery and her second pair for another surgery.. They are amazing and she loved having the comfort of her pajamas right there with her.. It made her happier and made the hospital stay a little better for her...!! They are so friendly and easy to talk to as well.!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing..

What do you think it means to my daughter, Juliana Carver, who is struggling with cancer for the fourth time since 2007 when she was only five years old and recently received such a special package in the mail. Juliana opened a package from Sweet Dreams for Kids about found a pair of pajamas in her favorite colors. You should have seen the smile on her face. PRICELESS!!

Since Juliana's been sick (half her life) she had had such an amazing attitude but, as her Dad, I can see she's getting tired of being sick. So many children struggle with sickness and never complain...never whine and, out of the blue, some beautiful organization called Sweet Dreams for Kids makes a HUGE difference in a child's day. It is more important than I can express.

Sweet Dreams for Kids not only lifts the hearts of the kids they serve but the family as well.

Thank you Sweet Dreams for Kids for making such a HUGE difference!!

My daughter, Brooke was a recipient not only once, but twice just a few short months ago!! She originally had a scheduled surgery which was only supposed to have a 5 day stay, well she had different plans!! I received a Facebook message asking if if be interested in receiving a pair of comfy Jammie's for her. We arrived home after 11 days and had a package waiting. Brooke's face absolutely lit up as she opened it!! She wanted to wear them right away :). Now onto our second pair!!! After just 3 short days of being home she ended up back in the hospital for another 30 days, enduring yet another surgery. After the first week, I remember chatting with Wendy on Facebook and she offered to send us a second pair!!! I mean what company would do that I thought to myself!! This is absolutely an amazing program Wendy!! I'm happy that I got to share this experience with a few other families while we were there. I will forever be grateful to you Wendy and your amazing Sweet Dreams for Kids program!!!
