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!
This is an amazing organization run by an incredibly dedicated family. Providing cute and pajamas to kids is such a sweet way to bring a touch of home to kids and to thus make the hospital experience less frightening. It is amazing how many pairs of pajamas have been donated to date. Bringing comfort to young patients and their families is truly a labor of love for this family!
Wendy and family work passionately and tirelessly to bring comfort to children and families who need it most. What a wonderful organization that inspires us - individuals and communities - to be truly compassionate. As other reviewers have said also, what they have been able to accomplish is nothing short of amazing. Keep up the great work!!
Wendy Berezovsky works so hard to send many pairs of pjs to kids who are sick in the hospital. It is an amazing organization and makes a tremendous effort to send pjs to every single kid!!!!!
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.
Since meeting Wendy and her family, I can't help but admire how she has not only provided new pajamas for kids with illnesses, but taught her children the priceless gift of giving! Kudos Wendy!!!
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.
I am no one special. my children are healthy. I have no need to even know this organization. Yet I do because I love children and what things organization does amazes me. 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!
When I see pictures of the smiling children in their pajamas it makes me realize that this organization can truly brighten an ill child's day and it brings so much joy to my heart.
