Dream Becomes National Corporate Sponsor of The Shoebox Project for Shelters™; Will Launch Chapters in Regina and Saskatoon

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2014) - Dream Unlimited Corp. ("Dream") (TSX:DRM)(TSX:DRM.PR.A) is proud to announce its support of the Shoebox Project for Shelters, an initiative started in 2011 that provides women and girls in shelters with shoeboxes filled with small gift items. The boxes are distributed around the holidays or Mothers Day; last holiday season, close to 10,000 boxes were delivered to shelters across the country.

As the first and only National Corporate Sponsor, Dream is providing the Shoebox Project with $75,000 per year for three years, giving the program the resources it needs to hire administrative resources, including a national coordinator whose mandate will be to oversee the organization's growth.

"This is a great organization, and we are excited to be partnering with the Shoebox Project to help women all over the country," said Michael Cooper, President and CEO of Dream Unlimited. "The work the Shoebox Project has done and the number of lives they have impacted since 2011 is impressive, and we are happy to support their mission."

As an important developer in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Dream will also contribute to The Shoebox Project by establishing chapters in Regina and Saskatoon. In both those cities, Dream employees and volunteers will lead the cities' first shoebox delivery this holiday season.

"We are thrilled that Dream is supporting us in such a significant way," said Caroline Mulroney Lapham, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Shoebox Project. "Having administrative support at the national level and established chapters in Regina and Saskatoon will go a long way in brightening the lives of homeless women and girls who often feel isolated from their communities."

The Shoebox Project also aims to raise awareness about women's homelessness and its related factors, such as abuse, poverty, and mental illness. The project has grown rapidly in three years, and every year an increasing number of Canadians choose to give back to their community by filling boxes with $50-worth of small luxury items including nail polish, chocolate, makeup, bus tokens and gift certificates.

About The Shoebox Project for Shelters Supported by Dream

The Shoebox Project for Shelters was co-founded in Toronto in 2011 by four sisters-in-law, who asked their friends to fill shoeboxes with $50 worth of little luxuries, so they could deliver them to a local shelter. Today, the Shoebox Project operates in 30 communities across Canada and is still growing! Since inception, the Shoebox Project has delivered over 15,000 gifts to women in almost 200 shelters. The Shoebox Project is a registered charity, headquartered in Toronto. More information can be found at www.shoeboxproject.com.
