Mission The Sunshine Foundation's sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children age three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their reguests due to the financial strain that the child's illness may cause and to educate the public and increase awareness of the children that the Foundation benefits.
Impact

Nationally, the staff and volunteers of the Sunshine Foundation have worked very hard to continue to answer the dreams of deserving children in this financial climate. Specifically in Florida we have accomplished the following:

·       Universal Orlando Foundation adopted a Dream Village Cottage with a $30,000 grant for one full year which will allow us to increase volunteer activity and answer more dreams.
·       LEGOLAND FL completely remodeled one of the nine cottages and changed it into a LEGO theme throughout.

·       The KPMG Workday was the largest work project in the history of the Dream Village with over 100 employees participating from around the globe in painting and landscaping projects.

·       For a fourth year, the Honeywell and Rebuilidng Together workday engaged over 80 employees from North and South America and Europe working on constructing Phase One of our Therapeutic Riding Center.

·       More than 75 local special needs children from Karen Siegel Academy and Loughman Oaks Elementary visisted the Dream Village facility for field trips.

Our top goals for the upcoming year are as follows:

·       To continue to increase funding and to grow our events at the Dream Village to include new business sponsors.

·       To build a state of the art Equestrian Center and  Fishing pond at the Dream Village that is completely ADA accessible. To expand the number of cottages with a Fort themed area.

·       To reach our $2 million annual goal to be able to fill our cottages at the Dream Village on a weekly basis with the 200+ children on our national waiting list.

Independent Research has been conducted on this organization's theory of change or program effectiveness? No
Needs According to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report, there are more than 10.2 Million children who suffer from a chronic or serious illness or physical or mental challenge. This constitutes nearly 14% of all children in the United States today.
 
Children’s medical conditions also impact the family members and siblings who care for a child struggling with serious illness or disability. Although the Sunshine Foundation has answered the dreams of more than 36,000 children since it was founded, clearly there are many more millions of children that we could help.
Sunshine Foundation staff and volunteers are working towards our future goals and over the next year we will be focused upon the following:

·       Answer the dreams of 50 additional children next year which will cost $200,000.

·       Build relationships with new children’s hospitals to identify children in need.

·       Add a therapeutic riding center and fishing pond at the Dream Village which will cost $500,000.

·       Charter one additional dream lift costing $100,000.

Other areas of concern include increasing public relations impressions, adding new corporate and foundation donors and building better business relationships.

Background
In the 1960’s, Philadelphia police officer Bill Sample was assigned on protective duty to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. He encountered critically ill and often terminally ill children and saw first hand how these children’s families were burdened not only by mounting medical bills, but also by the frustration of not being able to provide their child a special dream.
 
In 1976, Bill took out a $4,000 personal loan and, with the help of others, started the Sunshine Foundation and began making dreams come true for chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children. The first child helped was Bobby, a five year old boy diagnosed with cancer. Bobby’s nurse told Bill that the boy had a dream to go to the mountains to play in the snow. So Bill brought him, his parents and siblings to the Poconos for a week of skiing, sledding and snowmobiling. His family remembers the time as very special and they had an opportunity to make long lasting memories.
 
The Sunshine Foundation is the original wish granting organization and over the past 35 years, more than 36,000 children have benefited from our programs and services. Granting a dream or a wish for a child with an illness is not a part of traditional medicine. However, it often becomes an integral part of a child’s path towards wellness, independence, stability or recovery. The Sunshine Foundation has many accounts on record from parents and children who attest to the power of a few days away from doctors, hospitals and treatments. It can make all the difference in the world and the staff proudly pursues its work on behalf of children every single day.
 

The Sunshine Foundation is a grassroots, $1.698 Million national organization answering the dreams of 250-350 children and 650 family members annually throughout the United States. The organization is well known and acknowledged by numerous prestigious awards including the President Ronald Reagan Volunteer Action Award, the Father Baker Award, the Jefferson Award, the Honor Medal, the Great Friend to Kids Award and the City of Philadelphia Award.

 

The Sunshine Foundation was also the first non-profit to bring attention in 1980 to then little know Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome hosting Annual Progeria Reunions for 27 years. Since initiating Progeria awareness, numerous other charitable foundations have been established to offer hope, support and medical directives to care for this devastating illness.

 

CEO Statement

Granting a dream or a wish for a child with an illness is not traditional medicine and there are no formal studies conducted by medical professionals or researchers to track its purposefulness on a child’s path towards wellness, independence or recovery. However, the Sunshine Foundation staff, volunteers, donors and board members can see the success of our programs and services in the stories and accounts of the children and families we serve.

 

For example, in 1981, only one in five children survived cancer. In that year, Chrissy was just five years old and suffered from Leukemia. The Sunshine Foundation granted Chrissy’s dream to visit Disney World and meet Minnie Mouse. Bob Dotson, a well-known NBC Today Show correspondent followed her story and accompanied her and her parents on the trip. Twenty years later in 2001 he did a follow-up story and discovered that Chrissy had survived her cancer and was a 24 year old mother of a little boy named Sebastian. Bob reunited her with Bill Sample and in the segment she credits that her dream visit to Disney was the turning point in her battle against cancer. She believes she survived the disease because of her trip.

 

The Sunshine Foundation has thousands of other stories just like Chrissy’s. Recently, a seven year old girl named Shea who has cerebral palsy received her dream come true vacation to the Dream Village and the Florida theme parks. Her favorite part of the entire trip was the ADA accessible swimming pool where for the first time in her life she discarded her walker and crossed the pool on her own more than 100 times. Her parents had been trying to encourage Shea for months to transition to her crutches but she refused. The trip made all the difference in the world and now she has started working with her physical therapists to transition to crutches entirely.

 

Joey is a nine year old boy with Down syndrome. He is mostly non-verbal and doesn’t communicate with his family beyond hand signals. He went with his family to stay at the Dream Village last  year and spent several days exploring all of the Disney parks. On the car ride back from their final day in Florida, Joey spoke and said “Yes, yes, I'm happy.” His shocked parents looked back at him and asked Joey to repeat himself. He said again “I'm happy.” The trip to Disney World encouraged the young boy to speak up and say a few words. He continues to try and verbalize more and his parents are so grateful that they heard their son say a few words that truly described how he was feeling.

Description
The most popular dream request is for a family trip to Orlando, Florida to visit Disney World, Universal, SeaWorld, Legoland, NASA and the Florida coast beaches.
 
Families stay at the Foundation's Dream Village in Davenport, Florida, an enchanted accommodation. Since 1990, more than 20,212 children have enjoyed the Dream Village which includes 9 fairytale themed cottages, handicap accessible ammenities, including heated swimming pool, playground and miniature golf course.
 
The Sunshine Foundation provides everything for the entire family to make this experience memorable including airfare, transportation, lodging, tickets to the attractions and spending money. These dreams cost approximately $5,000 per family and over the past year 109 children and 454 family members have benefited from this program.
 
The Dream Village is fully operated and maintained by two full time staff and a group of 11 consistent volunteers who work together to provide great service to the families.

Short Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe near term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. This may represent immediate outcomes occurring as a result of the end of a session or service.
The illness and disability of a child impacts the entire family, not just the child. Parents are often under a great deal of stress while other siblings often feel as if they aren't as important as their brother and sister with the illness.
 
When we are able to grant a dream for a child, it benefits the entire family. Parents often see changes in their children and by the end of the trip everyone is smiling. The typical duration time to the Dream Village is four nights and five days from Thursday until Tuesday.
 
The near term improvement for the family that results from this program is that most if not all participants have an immediate sense of relief from stress and/or frustration. The majority (approximately 95%) of the children experience improvement in the way they feel and in the way they behave, regardless of whether or not they must continue with medical therapies and treatments while on the trip.
 
 
Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.

Granting a dream or a wish for a child with an illness is not a part of traditional medicine. However, it often becomes an integral part of a child’s path towards wellness, independence, stability or recovery. The Sunshine Foundation has many accounts on record from parents and children who attest to the power of a few days away from doctors, hospitals and treatments. It can make all the difference in the world and the staff proudly pursues its work on behalf of children every single day. We project:

  • At least 80% of the children served see either a temporary or permanent improvement in their outlook as a result of their granted dream or wish.
  • At least 80% of the families served will also experience some relief from the stress of their child’s or sibling’s illness and build new memories and commitments for the future. 

We gather this information via exit surveys that the families complete on their last day. Staff uses this information to help shape future programs.

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

All of the families we serve are struggling financially and must have a combined family income of $75,000 or less. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion or gender and 45% of the children we serve live in homes headed by a single mother. Some 44% of the children we serve are at 100% of poverty according to the 2011 annual Federal poverty guidelines.

We measure our outcomes using exit surveys, letters of thanks from the families we serve, and anecdotal information. This information is used to evaluate and strengthen our programs for the future and the families that we will serve in years to come.

Description In an effort to reach out to more special children, the Sunshine Foundation initiated the Dreamlift program in 1980 taking participants on a one day adventure to their favorite Central Florida theme park. Children board the plane in the morning and just a few hours later they are enjoying a day providing tons of fun and exciting memories. Many generous volunteers including state troopers, fire fighters and local police assist in lifting the children on the plane and share in the excitement. Over the past year, 90 children and 80 family members participated in this program. Since the program began 100 airplanes have taken 5,411 children on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Dreamlift excursions allow the Sunshine Foundation to answer the dreams of more children at one time. As a result, we can ensure that more than 100 children have an opportunity to visit the Central Florida attractions at a time. By the end of the day, 100% of the children return to their homes with a more positive outlook giving them what they need to continue in their progress towards wellness.

According to the report "A Needed Lifeline...Chronically Ill Children & Public Health" completed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation using data from the US Centers for Disease Control, there are more than 10 Million children in the United States with special health care needs. This represents approximately 13.9% or 1 in 7 US children. According to the March 2011 issue of Acta Paediatrica children with chronic health conditions are 88% more likely to suffer physical abuse than healthy children.   

The See the Sunshine in Every Child education program is still under development. However, the goal of the program is to encourage others to treat children with disabilities or chronic illnesses with more respect and compassion. The program which will be launched in September 2012 will include a marketing and public relations component as well as a hands-on learning curriculum appropriate for school children.

CEO Comments
It has been a wonderful year for the Sunshine Foudnation. Details of our programs and our efforts to spread joy to hundreds of children and families from throughout the United States are detailed throughout this page. The organization continues to thrive and we have much to celebrate in this, our 36th Anniversary year.
 
During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, we helped more than 1000 children and family members by granting dreams including visits to the Dream Village in Florida and special trips, special gifts, and a dream lift in May 2012. Specifically we provided:
  • Dream Village Dreams for 109 children and 454 family members.
  • Special gifts for 28 children and 135 family members.
  • Special trips for 10 children and 51 family members.
  • Visits to the Dream Village for 10 school children and 10 family members.
  • A Dreamlift for 90 children and 80 family members.
  • Computers for 4 children and 17 family members.
  • Celebrity Meets for 1 child and 2 family members.
In addition, we have been able to form a number of new corporate partnerships including "dream opportunities" with Universal Orlando Foundation, Legoland, SeaWorld and Allegiant Air. These opportunities will allow us to expand our services and improve the methods in which we serve our children and families.
 
We continue to prosper and at the same time are proud to say that over 83% of every dollar is applied to programs serving children. Answering so many dreams is only possible thanks to the support of the dedicated volunteers and donors who generously contribute their time and money.
 
Our agenda for the future year is aggressive. We have much more to accomplish to help the Sunshien Foundation to grow to serve all of the children currently on our waiting list and in the future. We need your help now more than ever to continue to reach out to children in need. Thank you for your support.
