Holiday Dream

Three young brothers ages 11, 9 and 5, lost their mother tragically this fall. Their aunt, a single mom of 2, without hesitation became the guardian of all three boys in the blink of an eye, while grieving the loss of her dear sister. The strength and bond of this family, the children’s resilient spirit and support for each other is inspiring to see.
For the eight year in a row, Nurenberg Paris Law Firm has partnered with Believe in Dreams for a unique ‘adopt a family’ holiday dream come true. This family received their dream presentation just a few days before Christmas last week. Among some of the highlights were a family getaway to Kalahari; a basement recreation room makeover and special boxes from the North Pole not to be opened till Christmas. Each child received individual wish list items iof which some included: a guitar with lessons, a dirt bike, new phone, gaming system, a football experience and a spa day. A special memorial wind chime and memory stones were also shared to help this beautiful family keep their angel close at heart.
Because of your generosity, 2021 has been a year full of opportunities and hope for all our dreamers!
We look forward to your continued support in 2022.

Our Commitment to Ethical Storytelling

The positive experiences of our Dreamers and families through every touchpoint with Believe in Dreams is our highest priority. As a trauma informed organization, we are always exploring ways to be as transparent as possible with the community about our work while always making a top priority the importance of dream recipients’ safety, privacy and ownership over their own stories.
As we work to expand awareness of our mission and work, we are committed to empowering, and never exploiting, the youth we serve. This is why Believe in Dreams is committed to the “Ethical Storytelling pledge”. As we navigate our ever evolving digital world, this pledge serves as a guide to ensure we share stories in a way that is appropriate, promotes youth empowerment and highlights the strength and resiliency of our youth, not their trauma.
