As of today, you can – in addition to general donations for the foundation – also make a donation for a dream day of your choosing. This way, you can choose which wish suits you best, and what you want to contribute to. All donations go entirely to the execution of the respective dream day. This way, your money always ends up in the right place!

Upcoming dream days

There are currently two dream days ready to be experienced. As soon as the measures allow it again, we will start!

Do you think it’s a great idea to contribute to giving a family a day at the zoo and a round of go-karting? Then donate for Fatemeh’s dream day.

Or maybe you would like to contribute to a day in Giethoorn for a Syrian family? Then you’re at the right place for Wafaa’s dream day.

Yesterday, the volunteers for Fatemeh’s dream day met for the first time. Due to the corona measures, this was done via zoom. That was of course slightly different than usual, but it was a very fun and useful meeting!

Together, this group of volunteers will ensure that Fatemeh and her family will get to go to the zoo, go karting and have a delicious Turkish meal. This is already being set up, so that we can go as soon as the corona measures allow this.

We are already looking forward to it!

Are you curious what has been done in 2019 by the foundation and all its wonderful volunteers? The 2019 annual report is online! Including a nice photo report of the wishes we have made come true. Do you want to see it? Download it from this page.

Unfortunately, we only have a Dutch version available at the moment. We still hope that the smiling faces will tell you at least some parts of the stories.

Although we are still in the middle of the second covid wave, we’re, of course, not sitting still. We can already start meeting online in preparation for the next dream day. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do!

A brand new group of volunteers will meet online from November. We will already brainstorm with them and prepare for the next dream day: Fatemeh’s! She is from Afghanistan and would like to go on a daytrip with us, her husband and two daughters aged 6 and 2.5 years old.

The dream day itself will take place as soon as the developments surrounding the corona virus allow this. We will, of course, always follow the advice and measures of RIVM and the government.

We’re already looking forward to the dream day and hope that we can get back on the road soon! Stay tuned for updates.

Due to the coronavirus we had to postpone the dream day for 22nd of march for Wafaa (37) from Syria. We are really sorry for this, but the general health in the Netherlands is, of course, the most important thing.

In October we had plans to carry out this day again. Unfortunately, we had to decide again to postpone the day. But not to worry! The day is still in the starting blocks and we will implement it as soon as the developments surrounding the corona virus permit it. We will, of course, always follow the advice and measures of RIVM and the government.

We hope to be able to execute this day some time soon in the future ✨! Stay tuned for this and please all stay safe and healthy!
