Jay Leno made a special effort to make us all feel like VIP’s when he hosted Foster Your Dream at his Big Dog Garage in a secret location in the Los Angeles area!
Surrounded by history, craftsmanship and beautiful cars, we were able to get a sneak peek of Jay’s amazing car collection. Bob Sales told us so many interesting stories and took a real interest in our youth. Thanks to Gail Stocker and Mavis Leno we had an intro into probably the largest and most important car collection in the world. Oh and by the way, all the cars can be driven and are treated like royalty themselves. Thus, no posting on Facebook and no photos published of the collection here!
Our favorite cars? Colin Powell’s Volga. The super fast McClaren. The Dusenbergs. The Model T. Howard Hughes’ Lamborghini. All the touring cars. But the most fun was when we entered the second building and were told to put our camera’s away. Why? Because Jay was there working with his guys. He went over and quietly started up his 1906 Stanley Steamer. All of a sudden he waved to our Dream Kid to hop on and hang on! The two of them drove away on a special tour around the neighborhood! As we FYD folks stood and watched, Jay and our young man took off in a literal cloud of steam. We were amazed at the generosity of time and spirit that Mr. Leno afforded us. Thank you so much to Mavis, Gail, Bernard, Jim, Bob and most of all, Jay!
Welcome to Foster Your Dream’s first blog post! We are proud to announce that we are a bonafide Public Benefit Corporation which will provide Dreams to kids in Foster Care!
Remember all those little extras that you got as a kid? A bicycle. Music lessons. Karate lessons. Trips to the Zoo. Tickets to a concert or a sporting event. Cool sneakers. Prom Dresses? Your parents gave these things to you. So what about kids that don’t have parents readily available to them? They get what they need in the Foster System, but often the giving ends there. Many would say that these kids get “three hots and a cot.” That’s not enough for us at Foster Your Dream! We want to enrich these young lives with anything you can think of! By making their dreams come true now, we hope to make them feel valued and send them on a path of becoming vital citizens who learn that giving and giving back is part of being a member of the American Family.
Please consider contacting us with goods, services or financial donations. Anything that you dream up, could help one of our hundreds of thousands of children have a Dream Come True. The national statistic is around half a million kids, who are being raised by the government.
Feel free to donate funds to us here: or to contact us and I will let you know how to do it. To avoid bots I will spell out the address. Sue Wolf at foster your dream dotorg. If you can offer us an opportunity but no money, that is fantastic, too! Please be in touch and we will arrange YOUR dream to come true for our kids. Thank you so much.
