Jumbled Dreams – Changing Lives, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping one person at a time realize, prepare, and achieve the dream to help others in any way possible. The needs of others are as jumbled as the dreams of the persons who have those dreams. We inform, engage, and assist others on how to take actions and raise funds that support making their individual dreams of helping others come true. This can be accomplished through social media or by reaching out personally to educate the public.
Everyone is broken at times and that’s okay because it’s through those cracks that we can see the goodness and through that goodness, we can make a dream come true and change a life.

How did Jumbled Dreams come to be?
Sydnee has been limited on what she was allowed to do since she is so young. Most charities make you wait until you are 13 or 14 before you can start volunteering and even then you must have an adult with you! “I can’t just sit here and watch our world suffer because I am being limited by my age. I know there are others out there who are wanting to help too, but are being limited because of their age, job, race, religion, or anything that is different about them.”
All her life, Sydnee has been wanting to do something different and to get others to realize that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you need, there is someone to help you!
Jumbled Dreams is here to bring out the good in others and to show that together we can make a difference in this world!
How life experiences inspired a teenager to found Jumbled Dreams and to encourage others to get involved.
Sydnee is 13 years old and is the founder and creator of Jumbled Dreams. Sydnee used to live in a town that was classified as disadvantaged by the Census Bureau. Her family was all employed, but a lot of families in the area lost their jobs when the coal mines closed down. This left a number of Sydnee’s friends without adequate food or clothing. Seeing that, Sydnee knew that she wanted to do something to help. “Being there in my hometown and seeing my own friends not have what they needed broke my heart. I knew right then that my goal in life was to help others in any way I can. I will do whatever it takes to make a difference in this world!”
Sydnee has raised money for numerous causes and in multiple venues. One of her favorite ways to raise the money to crochet and sell scarves. She has given funds to the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, sponsored a little girl in Nicaragua, and purchased school supplies for a classroom in Uganda. She also helped to purchase shoes, sock, and backpacks filled with school supplies for over 500 kids. And then she went a step further — she helped to wash the feet of those children before putting on their new socks and shoes! What a life changing experience!
For the past two years, Sydnee served in her school’s Student Council. The school was involved in multiple community service activities including two food drives, a school supplies drive and reading garden for a school in Gatlinburg that was destroyed in the 2016 fires, collecting over 5,000 items to make toiletry bags for the homeless in Nashville, and, of course, teacher appreciation.
