Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health

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 11 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

I first learned of "Sweet Dreams for Kids" when the organization was featured on a local television show. Wendy's enthusiasm and commitment are contagious. I am the director of a local preschool. For the past 10 years, we have celebrated Mother's Day at our preschool by asking our students to go to the store and, instead of buying a gift for their mother, to purchase a pair of pajamas for a sick child in honor of their mother. Our students and their families have embraced this program. Our preschool "moms" can think of no better way to celebrate Mother's Day! The kids bring the pajamas to school and hang them on a long clothesline in the school's entrance. Since our first successful event, it has become our Mother's Day tradition!

I have had the great privilege of facilitating large pajama donations to support Sweet Dreams For Kids on two separate occasions. Each time, SDFK has expressed such sincere gratitude for my company's support. Wendy and SDFK do this work out of such a genuine place - with such kindness and compassion AND with very minimal resources. If your company is looking for a fabulous organization to support and partner with, I highly recommend SDFK!

I am 14 and I held a pajama drive at my school for this organization, as it directly helps kids with cancer. The school community felt very good to participate in donating, and I was glad to see how well it went and how easy it was to donate. I am so happy that it helps so many kids.

I am a nurse in St Louis. We have been in contact with Wendy with Sweet Dreams for Kids for the last few weeks. Wendy will be making kids in our Children's hospital a little more comfortable when we start our "tuck ins". We can't thank Sweet Dreams for Kids enough for their compassion and generousity! Looking forward to a long connection with them!

There is nothing worse than having your child in the hospital but this company goes above and beyond to ensure that at least your child gets some comfy jammies while they are inpatient..would recommend 100000 times :)

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.
