The mandate of the Dream Factory is to provide the opportunity and means to fulfill the favourite dream of a child with a life-threatening illness, who is less than eighteen years of age and who resides in Manitoba.
The Dream Factory when fulfilling a child's dream follows these guidelines:
- To grant the request of every eligible child
- To ensure the dream is in the best interest of the child
- To include the child's immediate family in the dream
- To fulfill the dream outside of a hospital environment
To maintain the dignity of our dream children and their families any publicity done featuring our dream children and their families is done with their complete consent. However, there is no obligation placed on the family to participate in any publicity.
About Dream Factory
The Dream Factory was founded as The Rainbow Society in Winnipeg in 1983 and was the first organization of its kind in Canada. The Dream Factory is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to making once in a life-time dreams come true for Manitoba children suffering from a life-threatening illness. We are a Manitoba based organization so all money raised stays in our Province to help Manitoba children.
The Dream Factory's goal is to say YES to every single dream child. We believe that these dreams should be experienced not only by the suffering child, but also by their immediate family whenever possible, without financially burdening the family.
The most popular dream request is to visit Mickey & Minnie in the Magical Kingdom of Disney World, however, dreams are only limited to the child's imagination. A dream come true means so much to a young child who has already endured more in their young lives, than most adults.
