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!

I came across Sweet Dreams for Children, after my 5 week old daughter spent an extended stay in the hospital. It has always been a joy to see the updates on what they are doing, and that Wendy (the founder) has faced similar health challenges with her children and has found away to bring light to an area that can be so dark. After my Daughter had surgery at the age of 22 months, we did a pajama drive in her honor. So many people we knew and didnt know, all around the world donated pajamas. After my daughter recovered from her surgery, Wendy sent us stickers to put on the Pajamas and we delivered them to the Childrens Hospital on behalf of Sweet Dreams for Children. It was nice to share what Sweet Dreams for Children does for children.

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

I wouldn't make any changes, I would love to see this organization continue to grow and help others.

As a teen I had leukemia and spent MONTHS in the hospital, having our own 'clothes' was one of the few "regular' things that we got in moments when our lives were upside down and literally on the edge of death. This organization realizes how much a 'simple' pair of pjs can brighten the day of a child who's entire world is in turmoil.
WHAT A WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION!!!! SO proud to be a donor and to be part of making the lives of sick children a little bit brighter!!!

Love this organization. They have been able to help my student council raise money so we could purchase pjs to be donated to our local children's hospital. Her organization was able to help us find who we needed to contact and what was needed. They provide for children who spend their days in the hospital to have something special.

Awesome organization. As a mom of a child who spent 2.5 months in the hospital, PJs are such an easy and practical way to cheer up a child who spends so many hours in bed. I've donated to Sweet Dreams for Kids and wish I had more money to donate too.

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

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.
