About Ireland’s Dream
Ireland’s Dream is a 501 c3 non-profit that is fully dedicated to the children and their families living with cerebral palsy. Our dream is to establish a first of its kind medical facility in the mid-Michigan area that will house the latest technologies for treating cerebral palsy all under one roof.
Cerebral palsy is a variable type of brain injury that affects people in many different ways. Some children are only slightly affected, while others are permanently disabled, wheelchair-bound, and need constant attendant care. There are no treatments that are covered by insurance to treat or reverse cerebral palsy.
However, there are many, many therapies available worldwide that improve cerebral palsy and can have significant impacts on quality of life. Unfortunately, most of these therapies are difficult to obtain due to lack of insurance coverage and travel costs.
We believe that no child with cerebral palsy should have his or her treatment options limited by his or her parent’s financial status. Out of this belief, Ireland’s Dream was born.

5 Reasons Why You Need This Straw in Your Life
- We made this straw in the USA and it’s awesome. Our super fancy (aka borosilicate) glass is so amazing, it can withstand temperatures below freezing and up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit! You’ll even find this stuff in the windows of the space shuttle! It’s also known as the same glass used in Pyrex®, but that’s not nearly as exciting as space shuttle glass.
- We’ve crushed down and lab tested all of the glass we use. It was really messy but totally worth it to let you know that there’s nothing nasty inside this glass. Unlike plastic, glass isn’t a porous material so it won’t leach into your mouth or drinks ever!
- You can clean your straw in the dishwasher. Yes, the super hot, sanitizing, easy-clean machine that is the dishwasher. We also sell a cleaning brush in case YOU are the dishwasher.
- You don’t like it? That’s cool. Just let us know and we’ll take it back, no questions asked. Except maybe, “What?? Why NOT!?!?” But really, it’s OK. Even though this rarely happens, we will put it to good use in our loving home.
- Each straw has a lifetime warranty. If you break it on accident (using it as a drumstick is not an accident!) we will replace it. We know you love your straw and will be sad without it, so we aim to make you happy again. Enough said!
