This was a very special win, as I really wanted to know the meaning of my dream. It will be published soon.

http://www.womansday.com/health/11382/dream-big-contest.html

"First prize is a dream interpretation session with Kelly and a two-night stay in New York City's Dream Hotel."

Instead of accepting the prize, I want to donate the hotel room to parents of kids who have to fly to NYC hospitals, so they have a place to stay while going through treatment with their children. Does anyone out there know how I might go about donating? Does Ronald McDonald House handle this kind of thing? Rooms for Hope? Any advice would be appreciated.

Break a leg on your big dreams, everyone!

Why don't you consider contacting your local Make-A-Wish foundation? They run entirely on donations and I'll bet there's a wish that could use the lodging! (You're a sweetheart!)

Taking your leads in this thread, I'm already contacting Make-A-Wish and googling other ways to donate the room. Woman's Day might not go for it, but I want to be prepared just in case they do. Also thinking of donating it to local NYC auction of some sort - again if Woman's Day is amenable to it.

Wow, all of you are so nice. Major luck dust :fairy4: going out to all of your big hearts.
