The Dream Factory of Greater Kansas City is 
starting it’s twenty-fourth year as a partner 
with the Kansas City Royals baseball club.

Children who dream of attending a game get so much
more than that on their dream trip! They attend the
game, sit in the dugout, meet the players, watch
batting practice, play a little catch with the 
players, and are featured on the Crown Screen!

The Dream Child, and their family, from beginning 
to end are treated like Royalty.

The Royals players are outstanding with the 
children and many of them take a few minutes to 
talk to the child and get to know them.  There
have been many times when the player will go 
back into the clubhouse and return with a bat 
or baseball gloves for the child to keep as a 
souvenir.  The smiles on their faces are priceless. 
The players treat the children like Royalty.

The 2015 World Series Champions are known for
“Taking the Crown” and they deserve it not just 
for their skill and perseverance on the field 
but for the way they treat their fans and how they
interact and embrace their community and making 
sure that dreams come true for all.

In addition to the impact the Royals program has on 
the kids, families, volunteers, Royals players and 
staff it has been a priceless way to bring 
awareness to the Dream Factory.  

The Dream Factory of Kansas City, and The Dream 
Factory overall, is grateful to be a partner 
of such an outstanding organization and look 
forward to many more years of making our kids
part of the royalty in KC.

Wish Upon A Rock… To Grant A Dream!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

We are now on a downwards slope to the weekend! Yay!

This week has brought something new and exciting to 
The Dream Factory - We have partnered with an amazing 
company, Wish Upon A Rock!

wishuponarocklogo

Wish Upon a Rock is a company that strives to build 
a community of positive wishes that can be shared 
verbally and visually. They are a company with a 
passion to make a difference in the world, and they 
are starting by helping grant dreams to critically 
and chronically ill children!

These generous and kindhearted people are donating 
8-10% of total sales until the end of February to 
The Dream Factory!

I know, we are very excited too!

This company started a community of positive 
energy through one simple task - the art of 
stacking rocks. Their rock stacks are a symbol 
of people's hopes, dreams, and good wishes. With 
each adjustment to your rocks you are faced with 
a simple, slowed, moment of time to reflect on 
what is truly important to you. We encourage each 
and every one of you, yes YOU, to step out of 
your comfort zone and give it a try, you won't
be disappointed in the peacefulness of the moment.

So now you're thinking, "Well that is great, 
I can always use a few moments of peace, but what 
does that have to do with The Dream Factory?"

Wish Upon A Rock sells beautiful genuine stone 
bracelets. These bracelets provide you the
