Making Dreams Come True For Over 30 Years
A dream experience is often more than just a dream come true. It’s the means to which restores joy to a child and their family, giving them memories that will last a lifetime.
There are several steps to making a dream come true. The experience of a dream is often a source of inspiration for many children who are undergoing difficult medical treatments and it frequently enables them to overcome any obstacles they may be facing.
The types of dreams vary as much as the personalities of the children we serve. They may involve meeting a celebrity, a trip, or a gift such as a computer or playground, or our most-requested dream, a week at the Give Kids the World Village, which enables a child to visit all of the Disney-area theme parks. No dream has been refused, except those involving motorized vehicles and firearms.
The compassionate staff of the Children's Dream Fund works closely with the children and their families to create the perfect dream. Once the child has decided on his or her dream, our dream coordinators begin creating an unforgettable experience, sparked by the child’s creativity and imagination. The dream coordinators then deliver the dream to the child and their family through a “Celebration of Life Party”, where small gifts relating to their dream, balloons and a cake are presented to the dream child.
The fulfillment of a child’s dream is an unbelievable experience that enhances not only the lives of the children and their families, but often an entire community and any donors who may have been involved.
Our Share the Dream program enables an individual, business, civic club or family to sponsor the dream of a child. The person or business wishing to participate in the Share the Dream program can select a child and dream whose cost meets the amount of donation they wish to give.
