Sweet Dreamzzz Wins Art Van Charity Challenge
The challenge, in which Midwest organizations raise money and awareness, encourages a friendly fundraising competition. Participating organizations raise money for their cause through online donations to the campaign, and the highest earning campaigns are awarded additional prize money from Art Van. The incredible supporters of Sweet DreamzzzÔ raised $33,205, which landed the organization in the top five and resulted in a $10,000 prize.
These funds will help serve additional children on Sweet Dreamzzz waitlist. The information children receive from Sweet Dreamzzz will allow them to be more informed about their own sleep habits and the necessity of a good night's sleep. Hopefully what they learn from Sweet Dreamzzz will aid them for the rest of their lives.
"We commend Art Van for their commitment to our community and the opportunity for nonprofits to compete for funds," Nancy Maxwell, executive director of Sweet Dreamzzz says. "Our supporters got us into the top five and for that, we extremely grateful!"
The challenge focused on organizations committed to women, children, and human services in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and St. Louis. Other winning organizations included Oaks Acorn Children's Village, Vision Hope Community Development Corporation, NOAH Project Detroit, Alpha Family Services of Greenville.
