Robert E. Swinson is an American Author. He has resided in Kansas most of his life, where a magical story began, “The Wizard of Oz.” The story Rob is telling the world however is based in reality and is one of the greatest stories ever told; the building of Neverland...

Do you have a bunch of old t-shirts and sweatshirts that you don't, or can't, wear anymore, but that you don't want to get rid of? Upcycling is one way to breathe new life into them! The definition of Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

Let's take those old t-shirts with sentimental value and make a blanket or quilt out of the t-shirt logos. You simply cut matching square blocks out of the front or back of the t-shirts and connect them with other fabric. With a sewing machine and a few crafting tools, you can create a comfy blanket that reminds you of your favorite musicians, sports teams, vacations and schools. 

We know that many of you would like to donate money to Michael’s Dream Foundation, or to other causes that are close to your heart, but we also know that not everyone has the extra cash lying around to make those donations. It can be a very frustrating feeling! Luckily, however, there ARE ways you can make that extra cash to not only donate to your favorite causes, but also to help yourself at the same time. Let’s do something together and turn that frustration into PRIDE and FUN, and one of the coolest feelings there is: feeling accomplished!

Do you like to dibble and dabble and tinker around making things? Would you consider yourself to be “crafty” like that? Well, why not turn those creative hands and minds of yours into money makers? On this page we are going to give you some useful ideas and links to help get you started using little more than things lying around your own home!

We are Thrilled to announce that Michael's Dream Foundation and author/singer/songwriter Heaven Leigh have partnered for the month of May 2014 to raise funds for our Michael's Dream Box delivery to the UK! She has graciously offered to donate 100% of the profits from the sales of her 3 books for this entire month! How awesome is that?!

After months of planning, fundraising, sorting and ocean freight shipping for our UK delivery of Michael’s Dream Boxes, we have finally dispersed the toys to various organizations in England. As with any new project we never fully know what bumps in the road may lie ahead. Our friend and supporter, Rob Swinson, stepped forward and contributed over half the funds needed to fulfill this project. Without his help we would have had to cut back on the number of toys we were able to give to the children, but….
