Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Like, literally staring us in the face. Reminding those who have yet to plan something special, that they are almost out of time and they better hurry up - or be in trouble. Reminding those that are single, that chocolate goes on sale the day after (Yipee!). Valentine's Day is a reminder to show the people we love that they are incredibly important to us. To show them that they are beautiful, handsome, caring, supportive, amazing people. Valentine's Day is more than just flowers and chocolate. More than a fancy dinner or a night out on the town. It is a day to say thank you. It is a day to remind your Valentine how much they mean to you. So we, at The National Headquarters of the Dream Factory, have only one question... To ALL of our amazing volunteers... Will you be our Valentine? Yes we can just hear you now.. Wow that was really corny? Are they serious? They can't be serious.. But we are! The Dream Factory, Inc. is the largest volunteer- driven children’s wish-granting organization in the United States. We proudly operate using a grass- roots approach, with more than 30 chapters run by hundreds of EXTREMELY dedicated volunteers who have granted thousands of dreams since 1980. These volunteers are the foundation of everything we stand for! They are the hope bringers and the smile makers. They are the most valuable asset that our organization has. Granting a child’s dream provides them, and their families, with a little bit of happiness, hope, and relief from the daily stress they face. Dreams create memories that provide these children and their families with the fuel to fight through emotional and financial difficulties. Without our volunteers, we wouldn't be granting dreams. So this Valentine's day don't just show your significant other how much you care about them. Make a difference in the lives of people around you. Become a Volunteer. Ours are the greatest people we know.
