100’s of families reach out to us annually that are turned away from other wish-granting organizations. Families with children that have a life-long, chronic illness or condition, dreaming of a special gift, a family trip, or to meet Mickey Mouse.

Join The Dream and help these families that just want to see their child laugh and smile, and to forget about their struggles, endless therapies and surgeries, even if its just for one day.
