SANTA BARBARA, CA – Twenty-two-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress, Lucy Hale, this month reveals a set of Stoney Clover Lane (SCL) bracelets she has co-designed with brand founders, Kendall and Libby Glazer. Available online at www.stoneyclover.com, the $100 set – with 25% benefiting Dream Foundation – includes five green beaded bracelets adorned with gold and silver dream-catcher and feather charms.
Dream Foundation is the first and largest national wish-granting organization for adults and their families suffering life-threatening illness. The partnership between SCL and the Santa Barbara, California-based charity began over two years ago. Inspired by Kim Kardashian’s support of the organization, the fashionable sisters – both students at Tulane University – began their business, creating stylish, stackable jewelry and showing that it’s always fashionable to have a big heart!
Santa Barbara, CA – August 18, 2011 – Dream Foundation – the first and largest national wish-granting organization for adults and their families suffering life-threatening illness – will fulfill William Kirkpatrick’s dream to make his living space more comfortable in his final days.
The 83-year-old Colorado Springs resident – with help from his Evercare Hospice social worker – contacted Dream Foundation with his final wish from the heart. Primarily homebound, Kirkpatrick relies largely on his favorite easy chair and bed sheets to find some measure of comfort; however, the condition of his belongings is far from adequate and Kirkpatrick is not equipped financially to replace them. He has fewer than six months to live, and longs for basic human comforts.
Dream Foundation will procure a brand new recliner and sheet set Kirkpatrick can use to make his living space more restful and enjoyable. On Thursday, August 18, these items – along with other accoutrements meant to enhance the dream experience – will be hand-delivered by volunteer Evercare Hospice Dream Hosts.
As Dream Foundation hospice partners, the nurses and social workers representing Evercare Hospice nationwide serve on the front lines with dream recipients and their families, assisting in everything from application process to the personal delivery of a dream.
Kirkpatrick’s dream is only one of more than 2,000 requests Dream Foundation receives each year – many representing basic need items. According to foundation Founder and President, Thomas Rollerson, people don’t often realize what an impact basic needs items can have at the end of life journey.
“With finances stretched to the breaking point, medical bills accumulating and the strain of incurable illness taking its toll, these necessities are unattainable for many,” Rollerson says. “A new chair and sheets will make a tremendous impact on Bill’s life. We are honored to be part of his dream.”

The girls founded SCL two years ago with hopes of showing youth it’s fashionable to have a big heart; they aim to use their one free month of academic freedom to have fun, sell their uber-trendy bracelets, and raise funds for Dream Foundation. The sisters are students at Tulane University in New Orleans.
Dream Foundation is the first and largest national wish-granting organization for adults and their families suffering life-threatening illness. The charity will receive 25 percent of all purchases made at the pop-up shop, allowing Kendall and Libby to continue making dreams come true far beyond the 10 they’ve already fulfilled.
