Wink Woman's Day "Dream Big" Grand Prize Winner
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/1138...g-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!

Sarabou (mar vista, ca)

Congrats on the win. That was a very nice gesture offering the hotel room up for someone who really needs it.

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!)
