Kathy inspired the Share the Dream program with her belief that nothing was impossible. She believed in herself and held fast to her hopes and dreams.
Share the Dream inspires children to dream again after being in survival mode from the trauma of domestic violence and experiencing little joy. Professional Nominators may share dream requests with us, knowing that healing can take place through laughter, play and simply having fun.
Dreams have been fulfilled to discover the magic of Disneyland for the first time, experience indoor skydiving at iFly, bungee jump at Jump Around Now, enjoy memberships to the San Diego Zoo and Natural History Museum, and participate in soccer, gymnastics, and karate. We have gifted a Rebel camera, iPad Air, and Nike soccer cleats and soccer ball to name a few. The expression on the children's faces is priceless, as they experience joy and are encouraged to dream again.
