Today we’re spotlighting an amazing organization that’s near and dear to our hearts, Dream Foundation, where you can sign up to donate your rental to be used by an adult patient as part of making their dreams come true.

Stay J & K, hosted by Kelsey and Joseph, partnered with Dream Foundation to host a magical weekend stay, donating two nights at their property to a terminal patient with a final wish to experience the Super Bowl. They stood to earn thousands of dollars on the most heavily booked weekend of the year, but instead spun the opportunity into a win-win for all involved. Kudos to Kelsey and Joseph on a job well done.
