Manila, Philippines
July 11th, 2004

The children could not be erased from Douglas's mind; they were chiseled within his conscience deep where no man can forget.  He especially could not forget one little girl who lay on a piece of dirty cardboard as she slept on the street.  That day he felt a deep sense of remorse for mankind and ashamed to be called a Catholic/Christian yet let such poverty go untouched.  So the promise was made as he crossed a busy street in Manila on a hot blistering day that he would return to help change the lives of all he could.

When he was home in the United States he could not forget that little girl sleeping on a dirty piece of cardboard...and he cried.  He also, could not forget he was a Catholic, a Christian, and a man who believes that God has a mission for all those who are willing to listen.  So the plans began and with $5,000 of his own money he started the foundation Doug's Dream Inc.  He realized that the more passion he put into the foundation the more color was put back into his own life.  The more he talked, the more he did, and the more others listened and he began to realize they also felt his passion and the Dream was no longer a Dream but a mission to be accomplished.

"Working together like the colors of the rainbow we can make something beautiful.  The Orphanage will be etched forever in time and no one can take that away from us.  We will take care of those who are not our own and for many we will be giving them something they never had...a home."

What greater gift can we give back to Thee?

We have been doing some aggressive fundraising for 2009 but the economy is not the best.  Despite this by October 2009 we have raised over $16,000 total.  Not bad considering we don't have a building or children yet.  In Gods time...Gods time.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
October 1st 2009

We started the Godparent Sponsorship program.  By months end we have 20 plus Godparents donating $35 monthly to help this endeavor.  These Godparents are so important to making this dream come true as they will raise the initial start-up costs and then also help to support each and every child.
