The Dreams Come True Kids Helping Kids program has made many dreams come true! This signature program of Dreams Come True brings together students and young people with dream recipients. Kids Helping Kids includes schools, clubs, youth groups, and civic, religious and service organizations.
Through the Kids Helping Kids program, students and young people raise money to sponsor the dream of a child who is battling a life-threatening illness. Fundraising projects can include car washes, bake sales, dances, talent shows, coin collections and many more activities. 100% of the funds raised by Kids Helping Kids go directly to dream fulfillment.
The Kids Helping Kids group then hosts a Celebration of Life dream party. This is an incredible opportunity for the students to meet and spend time with their sponsored dream child. The result: students experience the magnificent satisfaction that comes from doing for others; and the dream child meets some very caring “strangers” who made his or her dream come true. Following the party, the Kids Helping Kids group and dream child are no longer strangers…they have formed friendships unlike any other!
