The Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project allows a non-profit organization to bid for one-year commitment from MNWT to collaborate with them on promoting their cause. In return, the awarded organization will promise to promote MNWT to it's members and contributors. MNWT will offer support through fundraising events, helping create community awareness, and assisting in other opportunities to benefit the organization. This is the MNWT version of the United States Women of Today's Buckets of Sunshine. As of November 2019, the Marketing Committee voted to use the MNWT Priority Area as its Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project going forward. The Priority Area SPM and the Marketing Committee will work together to ensure this is successful starting in 2020-2021!
The Statewide Buckets of Sunshine Project Subcommittee is charged with locating an annual fundraising event for the chosen organization that will benefit from our organization's efforts. In the past, we have donated monetary and gift items to organizations such as: Shriner's Hospital, Emerge Mother Academy, Cheerful Givers, Mary's Place, the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women, Project Linus, MN Milk Bank for Babies, and Operation Minnesota Nice.
Sweet Dreams for Kids has donated over 15,000 new pajamas to various hospitals in Minnesota and other Children’s Hospitals around the country. We want that number to grow. Sweet Dreams for Kids was the subject of several feature stories on television news programs as well as magazines. We feel it is hard enough knowing your child is ill, but hospital pajamas are that constant reminder. We know this will bring a little more sunshine to everyone.
Sweet Dreams for Kids started as a family with a dream for all kids in the hospital to have cute, cozy, and comfortable new pajamas. The family's youngest child, who is a little walking miracle, was born with cancer. They saw her in hospital pajamas too many times, and it's the reason Sweet Dreams for Kids was started. They want to give back to others and this is the lesson they are trying to teach: when you give to others you will become happier.

Some ways to collect pajamas:
*There will be a pajama drive at Fall State during the Project Fair. If you donate a set of pajamas you will be entered to receive a prize bag*
