For more than a quarter-century, The Sacramento Bee has invited the community to help those less fortunate during the holiday season.

In 2016, the community responded with more than $223,000 in donations. Because of readers’ generosity, 32 dreams were fulfilled.

As we begin our 30th year of focusing on those who often are overlooked, we are asking for nominations for this year’s effort. And although the Book of Dreams does not approve requests for housing, cars or trips, no dream is too large or too small if it makes a difference in someone’s life. To nominate an individual, family or nonprofit organization, visit sacbee.com/bookofdreams.

Nominations have been extended to Nov. 3. Finalists will be notified and if chosen by The Bee, nominees must be willing to be featured in a story and photographed for the Book of Dreams. Call 916-556-5667 to request a nomination form or ask questions.
