By: Mistletoe Market of Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE, La. - Oct. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- Last year, Mistletoe Market raised over $10,000 for their chosen charity. This years' chosen charity, which will receive a portion of the proceeds from the 2013 Mistletoe Market Extravaganza entry fees, will be Dreams Come True of Louisiana. Founded in 1982, the goal of Dreams Come True of Louisiana is to grant dreams of children in the Louisiana area, ages 3 to 18 with life-threatening illnesses. Each year, Dreams Come True of Louisiana grants 50 to 60 dreams. They granted 60 dreams last year and had 12 children to earn their wings.  As of January 1st, they have had 50 dream applications cross their desk, and are receiving up to 3 request per week.  The dreams range from pets to household items, electronics, music, play equipment, shopping sprees and trips!

    "Normal kids talk about playing ball, cheering, dancing, fishing, hunting. Our kids talk about their various meds they take, the side effects, when did you lose your hair, do your bones hurt like this and on and on and on."

Dreams Come True of Louisiana (https://www.facebook.com/DreamsComeTrueofLouisiana) has stories that will inspire everyone to open thier hearts.

All the monies raised stays in Louisiana. Dreams Come True let the child tell them what they want for their dream and if it’s in their budget and legal, they grant “their” dream. Things everyone takes for granted is a special dream for a special child. Also, they are strong advocates to include the families throughout the entire process.

"After we grant their dream we don’t forget about them.  We have an annual Christmas Party, a Fashion show (dream kids are the models) and throughout the year I am contacted for a dream child during the Balloon Festival or when we have fundraisers."

Mistletoe Market of Baton Rouge is looking forward to seeing many faces this year at the Shopping Extravaganza in support of a child's dream.
