The brave children battling life-threatening illnesses can only receive one dream. The reality of their serious conditions is that when the dream is fulfilled, the illness and the struggles do not end. For that reason, Dreams Come True developed Special Times. Special Times provides the dream child and his or her family a time to momentarily forget the realities of life-threatening illnesses. It may be dinner at a favorite restaurant, tickets to a Jacksonville Jaguars game, a relaxing evening at the movies, a day of beauty, concert or theater tickets, a gift certificate to a store, new release DVDs or even a special holiday or birthday treat. Whatever the opportunity, Special Times reminds the children and their families that they are special and loved. In-kind contributions are welcome.
Special Time Initiative – Kaye’s Kids
Summer 2016 Kaye’s Kids iPad Recipients
Since December 2014, Dreams Come True has been honored to partner with Mark and Pam Kaye through our Special Times program initiative, Kaye’s Kids. While each dreamer may only receive one dream, we continue to find ways to bring joy to our dreamers and their families through our Special Times program. Through Kaye’s Kids, we help bring technology into the lives of some of our precious dreamers. To date, more than 40 local dreamers have received an iPad.
The gift of technology can help a fighting child feel less isolated. It keeps them connected to family and friends while they receive treatment. It provides simple joys like listening to music, playing video games, reading books, and keeping up with school work. Our Special Times initiative, Kaye’s Kids, gifts iPads to children battling life-threatening illnesses in the Jacksonville, FL metropolitan area.
Kaye’s Kids is not possible without the support of our local community. Thank you to the following individuals for underwriting several of our iPad gifts to date:
Southern Green of South Florida – Holy Family Catholic School – The Horizon Board of Dreams Come True – Sacred Heart Catholic School – The Law Offices of John M. Phillips – Body Control
