Bestow Hope for the Holidays
While children in your lives might dream of trips to Disney, electronics and more for the holidays, dreamers nominated to Believe in Dreams dream of a life with less pain, disappointment and isolation. Research has found the children who suffer adverse childhood experiences have a substantial higher risk of long-term negative impacts on their physical and mental health, unless they build resiliency. Dreamer nominations are growing by an average of 30%.
When you give today you are ensuring that resilient youth in our community will be seen, believed in and empowered to fulfill dreams for a brighter future.
Dreams for Better Sleep
Believe in Dreams has seen an increase in dreamers requesting their own bed and items for a space to call their own. Socioeconomically disadvantaged children often have to share a small bed with parents or siblings, sleep in a sleeping bag or on the floor. Dreamers like Justine, 12, living with her grandmother after experiencing neglect, dreams of having a bed and a room that she can call her own and grow into as a teenager. Not having your own bed often leads to a poor night sleep that will affect a child’s academic performance and adversely affect behavior for several years. When kids have their own bed, the get better quality and longer sleep which improves emotional health and increases their ability to stay engaged in school.
Now is the time you can support Dreams for Better Sleep. Together we will ensure each child that dreams of quality sleep has the essentials they need!
