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

Thank you so much for all that you do for our kids with such a sweet gesture. When we are in the hospital and it is so scary for my daughter, gifts from givers like yourselves make each day that much easier. Keep up the great work. Hugs to you and yours!

This organization is run with passion and dedication by one of the most amazing volunteers I have encountered in a 35-year nonprofit career. For sick children in hospitals to receive new pajamas, to be able to shed their hospital gowns, provides a small degree of normalcy in a situation which is often upside-down. Sweet Dreams for Kids, run locally out of Minneapolis, reaches children throughout the country and brings much-needed comfort to families of children in hospitals.

I work at Amplatz in the Emergency Department and have the opportunity to provide kids being admitted with a pair of comfy pj's from Sweet Dreams. These pajamas help these children and teens have something comfortable to wear and provide comfort and familiarity to what is often an uncomfortable and unfamiliar environment. We are so grateful to receive donations from Sweet Dreams- these pajamas do certainly make a difference!
