Make Your Dreams Come True

The Big Dream Gathering is coming to the University of Iowa on November 19, and we want you there!

I am a Big Dreamer. When I attended my first Big Dream Gathering in Kansas City, I had no idea what this event was going to launch. I only knew my Big Dream was to open a no-kill and rehabilitative shelter for pit bulls in Iowa City.

Since I didn’t know much about what was already established in town, I decided to volunteer at the Iowa City Animal Shelter. I found out that its dedicated volunteers and staff members do the work I had dreamed of every day. Currently, they have three pit bulls—and many other wonderful dogs as well. If you are interested in adopting or becoming a volunteer, please check out their website. I am not one to reinvent the wheel, so I have modified my dream to volunteer there at least 5-10 hours per month.

What do you think the Big Dream Gathering could do for you?

Every week, I will release a new video on this blog. Come back each week to see if you can help our dreamers or be inspired to Dream BIG! In this week’s video, I am interviewed by Mitch Matthews, the co-founder of the Big Dream Gathering, on why I believe it’s important for the UI Alumni Association to bring this event to the University of Iowa campus.
