Can asking a question help to change lives? Matt Rivera, Program Director of The Dream Support Network, is convinced it can. Matt helps run Ice Cream For A Dream, the signature event of the Dream Support Network, where he listens to more than 10,000 kids each year answer the simple question “what is your dream” in exchange for an ice cream.
