Our First Dream of 2012

Spring seems like a great time to start granting dreams! Our first dream kid of 2012 is Brandon, a little boy who is deaf from Loveland. Last year Brandon used an iPad in school and it helped him a lot. His teacher said he loved it and it was very useful for him. Unfortunately due to financial struggles at home his family can’t afford to buy him one. His mom says when asked what his dream was at first he wants to own a monster truck. Then he said he wants an iPad. She also said that Brandon has always been six months or more behind on his milestones and this would be a great way for him to catch up. Brandon’s dream of getting an iPad will come true sometime in April!

We also have a new great way to help make local kids dreams come true. There is a new website launching at the beginning of April that we are very excited to be a part of and want to tell you about. is designed to empower the world with connected communities. Their mission is to create tool that enable individuals and organizations to connect with the necessary resources to achieve their objectives. The site works around a concept called ‘crowd funding’. Essentially, everyone gives a little and we can raise a lot. The site is going to have its full launch the first week in April but there is a sneak peek available now for registered users. We have submitted two projects asking for funding to make some dreams come true and we need your support. Here is how you can help:
