Ticket to Dream has helped support our foster children and our organization so many times over the years, and in so many ways, I don't even know how to begin to thank them! They help our special youngsters by providing new clothing, school supplies, backpacks, hygiene items, personal care items, toys, Christmas gifts, extracurricular activates, shoes, socks, etc....I could go on and on with this list. They also help support our foster children by supporting our foster parents. When we have a horrible natural disaster, they are the first ones lined up to help however they can. We are so extremely grateful to Ticket t o Dream for their continued contributions. Their employees are devoted to the mission of the organization, and they live it every day.

As the Western Slope Director for Project 1.27, the breadth of our reach in Mesa County would not be feasible without the contributions from Ticket to Dream Foundation and their partnerships! This organization has allow us to walk beside children, families and case workers as they all have hard things to do. Their financial donations have allowed us to lighten the load of foster families with those first few days trying to meet the physical needs of a unexpected arrival to their homes. Their fun celebratory donations have allowed us an opportunity to provide a "fun" day for kids and their families at no cost or strings attached....just a small time to step out of the hard place and enjoy the moment! The donations have allowed us access to families to have conversations and encouragement to them. Reminding them that they are not alone in the foster journey. The children/young adults are amazed that they are cared for and thought of by folks that have never met them and yet give to them.

We are so grateful for the generosity that has been shown to us for our community here on the western slope of Colorado. Words are not enough for what you have done in our community! Thank you!!!

I represent a nonprofit from Tucson, Arizona called More Than a Bed. We provide essential items to foster, kinship, and adoptive families for the children in their homes because every child deserves to be valued. We received a phone call from the Ticket to Dream Foundation looking to assist our nonprofit and it's been such a blessing since that phone call. We have received in-kind donations such as back-to-school items, shoes, socks, accessories, clothing...everything that the children we support can use.

We rely on donated items, so to be able to receive brand new higher-ticket items from stores like Famous Footwear, Bombas, and Justice to name a few have been so wonderful for the children in care to benefit from. We're really excited for what the future holds and honor our relationship with TTD. We are grateful for our partnership a whole state away!

When I say Ticket to Dream is the best, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. My name is Mary Lennick and I am the Executive Director at Family Alternatives. We are a private, child foster care licensing agency based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have been partnering with a few years with Ticket to Dream and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I cannot say this enough: Ticket to Dream "gets it." They prioritize JOY and the donations we've received from this foundation and their various initiatives have made a significant impact on the lives of the children we serve. Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats a smile on a kid's face that Ticket to Dream made happen. We are so so SO grateful for their continued support and all of the amazing organizations they partner with to make dreams come true.

Thank You Ticket to Dream! CASA of Merced County works with foster youth, we provide advocacy and a voice for the child in court as well as a constant adult in the child's life. Thanks to Ticket to Dream we are able to provide our kiddos with much needs items such as clothes, shoes, socks, personal hygiene items. Not to mention funds for "normalcy" activities to help our children have fun memories. I wish you could see the smile on the face of a child receiving something simple as a pair of socks. Today we had a child come in to the office, she was very sad. We took her "shopping" in our kids closet (that exists thanks to Ticket to Dream). She left with a smile on her face and some great new clothes.

The South Carolina Youth Advocate Program (SCYAP) is so very grateful for all of the support from Ticket to Dream Foundation (TTD). I almost don't know where to start! They help our children in so many different ways. This organization calls to see if they can help when natural disasters strike, help support our foster families during the pandemic, supply back to school supplies, clothing, toys, gifts, celebrate graduations, and other special events in their lives. The support for extracurricular and normalcy activities is also very important to the children in our care. Many of these children have never had these special opportunities before and they have created many warm and lasting memories thanks to Ticket to Dream. Our Treatment Coordinators have told me how much the school supplies have helped our children, especially this year, as just receiving that backpack filled with supplies has created a feeling of some form of normalcy and also hopefulness. One of our foster Moms sent in a photo of her young foster sons opening their backpacks with big smiles on their faces and wearing Santa hats! She said they were so excited that it seemed like Christmas morning- so they just went with that feeling for a full on celebration! :) Thank you TTD for all that you do to support our special foster children!!!

Ticket to Dream Foundation is one of the most amazing organizations that support foster youth. Their ability to collaborate with other retailers to support non-profits across the U.S. is outstanding. TTD Foundation has provided stellar inkind support and financial program support to Blue Skies for Children, located in Bellingham, WA for many years. They provide graduation support, laptops, winter warm items such as coats & blankets, plus shoes, socks, gift cards, masks and backpacks for youth heading back to school each Fall. Additionally, they help us keep foster youth actively engaged in enrichment programs with their peers.

TTD has been a tremendous help to KVC West Virginia by providing our foster youth gifts, and resources. They truly understand the challenges youth in care face, and their support is not only heartfelt but very targeted and specific to our immediate needs. One of KVC’s programs, First Star Academy, a college readiness and life skills program for high school youth in care, has benefitted greatly. TTD has provided much-needed computers, technology, and school supplies, to ensure our students keep up with their studies and remain on track for high school graduation.
Kayla, Juan, and the staff have been an absolute pleasure to work with, and our organization hopes to continue our partnership with TTD in the years to come. Thank you, TTD!

CASA of Solano County is so thankful for our partnership with Ticket To Dream Foundation. The donations we receive help us to serve the foster youth in our community in ways that incomparable. Recently, we were gifted with a large selection of socks, which in our clothing closet is one of the most requested items. Seems like a small thing but to a child without much, a new pair of socks can be all it takes. The generous donations allow us to provide many "normal" experiences for the youth in care. None of it would be possible without this fantastic partnership.

Ticket to Dream has helped our agency provide more than clothing or school supplies or extra-curricular activities (all of which we are forever grateful for), Ticket to Dream has helped CASA of Solano County provide a better standard of life for the most vulnerable among us, children in foster care. Thank you Ticket to Dream for being there for our kiddos.

I'm filling in for the person who usually manages our relationship with TTD (she's on maternity leave), and I've been blown away by the amount of quality merchandise and gifts we've received in just 2 months for our foster kids! I don't know what was involved in becoming a partner, but there's very little admin work required on the back end. Such a great service!

As a new partner with Ticket to Dream, foster children in South Florida are blessed to be on the receiving end of their support. Ticket to Dream plays a special role in helping organizations like ours, who render direct support to foster families and the children in their care. With more needs than we can fill, our organization just doesn't have the staff to create the donation streams of goods and funding from Corporations. This is where Ticket to Dream comes in! In such a short time, they have put hundreds of smiles on the faces of our children. We look forward to a long and productive partnership! Thank you TTD!

TTD has been an amazing supporter of our organization for many years! Donating everything from mattresses, to toys, to clothes and so much more in-kind, all the way to helping us support families and staff in-need after disasters, no questions asked, like tornadoes and floods.
They are so easy to work with and we couldn't do what we do with out them!

Just this week, thanks to Ticket to Dream, children in foster care in our community had the opportunity to go to Homecoming, take piano lessons, go horseback riding, and play on their school's football team. These simple actions may not look like a lot, but they mean SO much to a child in foster care and would not happen if it weren't for the funds we receive from Ticket to Dream. Thank you and your donors for helping these incredible young people feel "normal" during a time that is anything but. We are so grateful to have you as partners on this journey!

It's hard not to love Ticket to Dream. I work for a CASA program. When COVID-19 arrived on the scene, Ticket to Dream was one of the first foundations to reach out and ask US what OUR needs were. They knew children in foster care may struggle with access to technology during the pandemic, and they provided us the resources to connect our children with their classrooms and advocates. They are always asking, "How can we help?" What a refreshing and impactful, child welfare partner.

Parents by Choice a nonprofit agency that serves children and youth in foster care has been able to provide so much more to the clients we serve thanks to Ticket to Dream! Many of our youth have received bikes, laptops, toys, and even experience amazing shows like Disney on Ice. This would not have been possible without the support of Ticket to Dream. Thank you for helping us elevate the lives of the children and youth that we serve!

TTD is a wonderful partner to us and the children in foster care we advocate for. We are able to distribute their donations to children and their foster families who really need them, and use their monetary donations to help our children and youth with things like winter coats, sports equipment, and computers. CASA of Kent County loves partnering with TTD!

Ticket to Dream has been an unbelievable partner for NewPath Child & Family Solutions, formerly St. Joseph Orphanage in Cincinnati, Ohio! The staff are so giving and the quality of materials given to our agency are incredible for our clients. For example, just a couple of weeks ago we received 400 pairs of socks for our foster care and transitional youth. This came at a time where our resource center was depleted and this answered our need. I could go on and on about the success model of TTD! Well done and keep up the great work!
