Friends, here is your chance to join us in this important work.

Dreamline empowers students around the world to move in the direction of their dreams!  Watch our video to learn how and see who!

Our goal is to fully fund 25,000 students to move in the direction of their dreams with Dreamline in the next school year. 

We need to raise $100,000 to accomplish this. EVERY contribution, large or small, means you are joining us in this effort. You are taking part, and your part counts.

The Dreamline program is FREE for teachers and students, made possible by your generous donations.

As a direct result of YOUR contribution, a group of students and their teachers will receive ALL of the following in the coming school year:

- student materials to create Dream Banners
- teacher professional development
- online support
- Dreamline World mobile app access and training
- analysis of student dream categories
- curriculum resources aligned to student dreams
- participation in Dreamline events and installations

You'll find a listing of what size group can be supported by what size contribution below. 

This past year has been an amazing experience of growth and impact for us. It has been our first year with a full-time director, and it has been my privilege to devote all of my efforts to this work. I am driven not only to keep it going, but also to see it expand to touch every student in the world because I believe every student must move in the direction of their dreams.

I want you to give at whatever level you can, but I want you, most of all, to be a part of this because we have to move our students in the direction of their dreams to create positive impact in their lives and in our world. I want you to share this program with people who will care. That, and a contribution, at any level, will make a huge difference in the lives of children.

Just for clarity, Cloud Cloth Education is the charity you’re donating to because Cloud Cloth Education runs Dreamline. And that’s all it does. Cloud Cloth Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit incorporated in Pennsylvania, USA.  Also when you give, a "tip" amount automatically appears. It is optional and goes to the GoFundMe platform. They don't charge us. 

The Dreamline program is open to any adult-led group and is free to join from anywhere in the world. So, in addition to supporting our program with your contribution and sending it to friends, you can get it going in a school near you by reaching out to teachers and administrators.

Thank you for joining me, along with Liz, Serita, Carlos, Ahmed, Phurba, Anne, Roxanne, the students and teachers at Anson Jones Elementary in Dallas, Texas; Wong-Zih Elementary School in Taichung City, Taiwan;  Al Bashaer School in Cairo, Egypt; and Burrell Boom Elementary School in Burrell Boom Village, Belize--all the folks in the video--and so many more.

"Dreamline allows hope, compassion and support to flourish, and all are desperately needed now!"
--Martha Cutts, retired Head of Washington Latin Charter School, Washington, DC.
This comment from Martha Cutts means the world to me. She was the driving force behind making what is today DC's finest public charter school. She is revered in her community and ALWAYS puts student learning first. She has helped Dreamline immeasurably, connecting us to school leaders across the entire DC region. They want this program for one of the most underserved school communities in the nation. And with you, we are raising the funds to deliver it. Please give and share today!

Great news for our campaign and students around the world! Yesterday we received an anonymous contribution of $18,000 to our campaign. That puts us SO CLOSE to the 40K mark, and within shooting distance of our 50% mark of 50K-- by the end of THIS month--and end of our fiscal year!

The large contribution is inspiring, but what we really need is LOTS of smaller ones to get where we’re going. Do you part now. Help us top 40K and move in on our 50% target by June 30, ten days away. We can do it! Sí, se puede!

I want to share an excerpt from a recorded interview I had with Michael Manetsi, a first year art teacher who works with 600 students in kindergarten through 6th grade at Anson Jones Elementary School in Dallas, Texas.

Anson Jones community includes some of the most underserved students in Dallas. Meeting with each of her groups for only 45 minutes once a week, Michael brought the Dreamline Program to every single one of her students this year. In the interview (coming soon in its full form) she explained how she did it.

When I asked her what was the most powerful result for her students across the board, this is what she said, and it blew me away:

"They get to KNOW themselves a little better—which to me is just the biggest thing you could have for any of the kids—is that they know who they are. I know that a lot of times as adults we loose sight of that. We can loose ourselves very easily. I think what’s really important is that this project is really just introducing How to think about who you are, and introduce who you are to the world. "

Please take the time now to contribute by making a donation and/or sharing our GoFundMe site. Join us as we teach students around the world "how to think about who you are, and introduce who you are to the world. " I could never say it better.
