"Rusty Says"

First, there was Smokey the Bear. Then, there was McGruff the crime dog. 

Now, there is "Rusty Says"!

"Rusty Says" is a new series of public service announcements created to air on

ABC, CBS and NBC television stations across the county, featuring our very own "Rusty"! 

In these special :30 second messages, Rusty encourages kids to not play with guns, to not bully other kids, and much more!

Your tax deductible "Giving Tuesday" donation helps us with television air time expenses.

"At-Home Learning"

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Hang On To The Dream Foundation began donating brand new iPads and laptops to kids so that they could continue their learning at home while schools reverted to at-home learning.  We are continuing to make sure that kids have everything they need to remain connected as schools move into "hybrid" learning (i,e, in-person and at-home classes), from providing internet connectivity in their homes to

covering their internet/WiFi expenses and more.

Please help us.

Tuesday November 29, 2022 is "Giving Tuesday"! 


"Giving Tuesday" was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. 

This special day has also become a time when people donate to worthy causes.

"Giving Tuesday" is a day when non-profit organizations like

Hang On to the Dream Foundation

depend on donations to help them fulfill their mission of helping those in need.


Your tax-deductible donation to the Hang On to the Dream Foundation will

help us with our numerous outreach efforts, including:
