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

What is better than an organization who does nice things for children who are in the hospital? It is such a stressful time for families when young children are sick, especially when they are in an extended stay situation. Putting pajamas on a child is such a little thing and brings such unfettered joy. We should all be giving to this organization to make it easier for doing their work. I'm so glad that I know about this organization and how easy it is to serve this fragile audience. Thank you Wendy for all that you are— and better yet, all that you do.

I met Wendy many year ago and she told me about her daughter who had to have some hospital care and HATED the hospital gowns. This led Wendy to get new pajamas for her daughter so that she could feel some sense of normalcy! I told her I thought this was a great idea and she asked me if my Lion's group would be involved! I said, why don't you ask them yourself...in a presentation at our next meeting! She did, we collected a whole lot of pajamas for her and periodically afterwards, and now she and her family set up for our annual Pancake Breakfast! Wendy has done a terrific job in making many kid's stay at a hospital a more pleasant event! Good job, Wendy! - Manny Camilon, Jr. ,SLP Lion's Club

With much gratitude to Wendy Berezovsky and her family for all their work in establishing this unique organization that brings so many smiles to hospitalized children with the most basic simple comfort of life--cozy and warm PJ's. May their efforts continue to go from strength to strength.

They give of their time, energy, money but most of all their heart. Thank you for all you do. I know the kids and the parents appreciate you so much. Keep up the awesome job.

It is so amazing to see such happy faces when the children get a special pair of pajamas to help their hospital time pass a bit more comfortably. Thank you for all you do Sweet Dreams for Kids! You really make a difference to so many who often have extensive stays at the hospital and so little to smile about while dealing with cancer! Job well done!
