A Stitch of a Dream

Seventeen year old, ‘Tonya’ has big dreams of starting her own clothing line. Her nominator org, The Center for Arts-Inspired Learning gave her a head start with her first sewing machine. All she needed was the rest of the tools and connections to really get started. Through a Believe in Dreams experience, ‘Tonya’ was presented with a sewing desk w/ chair and organization unit filled to the brim with all of the supplies she could think of: dress form, fabric, thread, buttons, zippers, scissors, pins, and many other accessories. She also received customized business cards with her personally created, new logo, and an iPhone to be able to connect, share and document her passion with others. That’s not all! ‘Tonya’ is also going to receive a VIP meet-n-greet and shadow day with local designer, Sharia Livingston of Living Rich. ‘Tonya’ has endured unimaginable losses in her family. She continues to transcend her hardships by being a born leader who always has an optimistic outlook and sees the good in everything.
2022 is off to a busy start as Believe in Dreams has received more nominations this first quarter of 2022 than any other first quarter since our founding. Your support will assure that every qualified child that is nominated will be presented with a customized, local dream experience.

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 increase transparency with the community about our work while placing the highest importance on 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”. In an 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 youth, not their trauma.
