Well, I must say that the above picture is not my proudest moment. Ok, it was me taking Deliver the Dream’s new online fundraising campaign literally! Only after hearing about the 2016 Dream BIG Campaign – did I realize that maybe a snooze in my doghouse wasn’t what I was supposed to do!
You see, I think the idea of Dreaming Big is a no brainer for providing an opportunity to lend your crucial support. How you ask? By asking your family, contacts, friends, and associates to help Deliver the Dream electronically. Your social network will be asked to donate to Deliver the Dream via your own personal webpage. Easy peasy! You can help my favorite organization without having to personally “ask”… but to make a soft ask through e-mail encouraging your contacts to visit your webpage via a link! Yup, we’ve made it that easy… and you’d be surprised how many people you know will want to back your efforts to support Deliver the Dream! Just remember, every donation, big or small makes a difference!
Ok, so now back to the photo. I’d appreciate it if you would remember that as Chief Security Officer at DTD… there are times that I may have to catch a snooze! If I find out who snapped the picture… well… they are literally “in the doghouse!” Um, just not with me!!!
So folks, you have a chance to help me here. I would be very grateful if you would participate in our Dream BIG Campaign by calling or e-mailing Christie Galeano at DTD. Her number is 954-564-3512 and her e-mail is email@example.com. Tell her Fred sent you and she’ll e-mail you the easy to follow information to create your own webpage!!! I think we’ll raise quite a bit to help families dealing with illness or crisis!
With a sniff and a lick,
Chief Security Officer, Deliver the Dream

A few years ago, Erick Feller, now 10, created Hugs for Hope, a campaign to raise money to buy teddy bears for all the children attending a Deliver the Dream retreat.
He hosts all sorts of different fundraisers throughout the year, including bake sales, jewelry parties and dine-in events at local restaurants.
His most recent fundraiser, hosted by Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in Cooper City, in January raised more than $1,000!
Thank you Erick and your family – Zack, Jamie and David! You guys are the best!
And thank you to everyone who came out that evening to support Erick and Hugs for Hope.
A special thank you to C. Davis Electric Co. and Black Diamond Funding!
