Egg My Yard 2021 was an amazing success and it couldn't have happened without the support of our volunteers whom spent countless hours packing eggs, counting eggs and delivering eggs.
Our grant cycle will be going through a small change starting this year. We will be moving the grant cycles by two months The March deadline will become May 31 and September will become November 30. There may be a few minor changes to the language in application process that we will try to make current for the beginning of the next cycle. Cycles will begin on July 1 and January 1 respectively.
5th Annual Egg My Yard - with extra steps to be COVID safe
Sign up while spots remain. Last year we had to stop taking orders due to demand. This year extra drive teams are being formed and trained to safely handle the egg deliveries (Mask, gloves, sanitizer, etc...). All orders will be filled and not touched for at least 3 days prior to delivery in a space without human contact. It is anticipated that we will be delivering a record amount of eggs and we hope not to turn anyone away.
Join us in helping adopting families and making Easter a special event during these special times. Choices of where and how to place the eggs are available and a text to let you know when we have arrived to deliver, if you choose.
For corporate and party sized orders, please contact us by email @ Dream4Adoption@gmail.com for details.
A new sponsor!
Dream4Adoption has added a special sponsor that promises 5% of purchases to go directly to our organization. Plum Krazy Creations has stepped up and we could not be happier. Please take a moment to visit their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PlumKrazyCreations
Finally able to get the Grant Cycle started
After a long wait to wrap up our previous cycle, the new grant cycle is officially open on June 1 and the deadline for submissions will be based on the regular schedule. Since contact with agencies and home study providers has been back on track, we have found that almost everyone has found ways to adapt to the changing climate with the last several months of events. Those that have applied for the last cycle should have notifications shortly.
Egg My Yard 2020 Complete
What a spectacular outpouring of support! Record number of deliveries and eggs for this year. Dream4Adoption worked extra hard to make everything extra safe and extra fun. The 5th annual Egg My Yard is already in motion. There are a few new things that we learned this year and we hope that year 5 will be our best yet!
If you like our event or our mission, please feel free to share, order next year, order for a friends yard, donate, host an event for us or even volunteer to help. This event brings a massive feeling of community as we serve the entire Greater Houston area. Dream4Adoption has been blessed with new relationships that have come through this event.
Our goal of supporting adoption feels like a joy and that is especially true with Egg My Yard.
Egg My Yard 2020 update
Egg my Yard 2020 over tripled in size this year. Due to the COVID situation, Dream4Adoption had to stop taking orders. Numbers of volunteers were lower this year and the necessity for extra safety measures had stretched us thin enough that we just could not produce any more orders, nor did we have any other drivers to be able to take on this massive delivery task. It melts our heart to see our fundraiser grow to this level.
2021 Egg My Yard will be working behind the scenes starting Monday. The goal is to at least double the number of deliveries for next year. Please join in next year and support adoption with this unique and fun event.
Grant Cycle Fall 2020
The next Dream4Adoption Adoption Assistance Grant will be postponed until further notice. The grant page is not available, but anyone having trouble getting the application sent in, should do so in the next week or two. We are allowing some extra time for delivery of mail and for those having difficulty getting out.
Due to the virus concerns, Adoptions, funding and the economy in a whirlwind. Once Dream4Adoption can get financially recovered and the other pieces of the puzzle begin to fit back into place, we will alert everyone to the next cycle dates.
Stay positive, keep yours dreams alive and hopefully society can come back stronger!
A new year, a new decade and a new beginning
As children in the foster care system and around the world in orphanages are waiting for a home and yet others are being placed into the system, Dream4Adoption is working hard to create programs and solutions to help these children have the family and love that they deserve. Whether you are adopting, adopted or want a place to support adoption, please join Dream4Adoption in making adoption a reality.
Egg My Yard 2020
Egg my Yard 2019 was very close to raising enough for a full grant. 2020 Dream4Adoption will be giving that extra push to see if we can indeed be able to provide one grant from this fundraiser. This is our favorite local event and Dream4Adoption will be launching the fundraiser early. It is our hope that we can reach a larger crowd and deliver all across Houston Texas. Anyone wanting eggs filled and delivered by mail, can contact us through email for arrangements.
