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

Sweet Dreams for Kids is the best!!! I would know first hand because i am Eliana and my sister is the reason why sweet dreams for kids was started. I was only about 18 when my sister Chaya Dalya was diagnosed with cancer. Me being so little I couldn't understand anything that was going on. In 2008 my family started Sweet Dreams and I still was very little. But, as I got older I started learning more about what my sister went through and why sweet dreams for kids was started. My mom is amazing! If I could describe my mom in 3 words I would say she lives to give. Everything is about everyone but, herself. My mom has sent over 15,000 pairs of pajamas nationwide! I try to help my mom as much as I can with sweet dreams for kids , I've gone a few times to deliver pajamas at hospitals in St.Louis, Chicago, Minnesota, Iowa, etc. I feel so good after making those delivers. These kids are fighting for their lives and then when they get some cute and cozy decorative pajamas it really turns their frown into a smile. Not only does it make the kid feel good but I think it also leaves a big impact on the family knowing that someone cares about them and their family on their journey. My mom has really gone out of her way to deliver pajamas, she will go out late at night and go deliver personally to a family in the hospital. The trips to the hospital, storage unit (to get pajamas), and the post office(to send pajamas) are countless. My mom and my family love to put smiles on kids and their family faces that are going through difficult times.
Kids, fight! Keep smiling with your pajamas. BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!!!
Mom, keep doing what you do!!! I love you!
