Childrens Organization Is Sponsoring Kids & Their Dreams During 

“Hang On To The Dream Day”

 

Families hard hit financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are getting some help when it comes to their kids and their activities. On Saturday October 17, the Hang On to the Dream Foundation is launching "Hang On to the Dream Day”, where kids 7 to 17 years of age can request sponsorship to help cover the costs of their activities, from dance and ice skating lessons, to art, music and more!

“We usually hold ‘Hang On To The Dream” sponsorship events like this at schools and shopping malls in various cities around the country, and we had a 10-city tour planned for this year, but then COVID hit”, says Christopher Ewing, the organization’s founder.  “That’s when we knew, more than ever, that we needed to do something to help”.

 

The concept for “Hang On To The Dream” began in 1994 as a television show, created and hosted by Ewing. The show went on to win an Emmy Award for “Best Children’s Program”, and following the success of the show, the Hang On To The Dream Foundation was started.  New episodes of the syndicated TV show are currently in production for the 2020-2021 season.

 

“Hang On To The Dream Day” is being held online on the 3rd Saturday of every month through the end of the year. The foundation is setting aside $10,000 each month to help sponsor kids and their dreams, with many sponsorship requests being granted within just a few days! Kids will be able to meet directly with the Hang On to the Dream sponsorship committee, face-to-face online, and present their sponsorship request.  Parents can go to www.hangontothedream.org for more information and to sign their child up for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.  Registration is free!
