Our Capital Campaign

We are expanding nationwide. Your donations will make this all possible! Thanks for your heart ♥.

We are proud to have transformed 31 bedrooms across 3 states, but the reality is we are turning away children across the country on a monthly basis that are requesting bedroom transformations. We have launched our capital campaign to raise $1,000,000 and scale Designing Dreams nation-wide.

While there are many programs supporting kids with cancer, they often rely on the child feeling well enough to participate. Our bedroom transformations serve as a healing oasis on the difficult days of treatment and a play space on the days where they are feeling up for the activities they love. They serve as a sanctuary for hope, joy, and healing day in and day out through treatment.
