The charity info (which I didn't edit):

 Sweet Dreams benefits two charities, the Broward Health/Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House. The Broward Health/Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund which was founded to screen women within the Coral Springs community who were financially unable to obtain screening mammograms and advanced high quality breast imaging and biopsies.  For more information visit:

The Ronald McDonald House ( provides housing for family members of children who are receiving hospital care.  Sometimes when a child gets sick they have to go to a hospital far from their families. And parents want to be with their child every second during such a difficult time. In fact, many would trade places with them if they could. Since they can't, they can at least be by their side. That's exactly why there’s RMHC. We have places where families can be together, because we believe children heal faster when they're with loved ones.  For the past 38 years, RMHC has provided hope, healing and the gift of togetherness for families in their greatest time of need.
