In honor of Giving Tuesday, Mattress Advisor, an online resource for all things sleep, announced a donation of 119 mattresses to Charlotte-based charity Beds For Kids’ “Thousand Bed Challenge.” Beds for Kids, a non-profit that delivers beds and essential furniture to families in need, recently launched an initiative to provide 1,000 beds to local children who are currently sleeping on the floor or without a bed to call their own.
Mattress Advisor is a resource helping consumers get better rest through sleep health information, tips and product reviews. The site takes a holistic approach to sleep wellness, acting as an all-encompassing resource for every sleep need. On December 3rd, Mattress Advisor will be kicking off the Thousand Bed Challenge by fulfilling over 10% of that goal.
“Thousands of children throughout the country go to bed each night without a comfortable or safe place to sleep. Since our founding, we have been committed to bettering sleep health for all, so this opportunity felt natural for us,” says Todd Alexander, Co-Founder and President of Mattress Advisor. “We’re excited to participate in such a meaningful project, and we are eager to contribute to a cause near to our mission and close to home.”
A child’s sleep habits, listening and learning skills, behavior and cognitive development all improve just by sleeping in a bed (Beds for Kids). Beds for Kids, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, empowers families with children by delivering beds and other essential furniture items to powerfully supplement the family’s resources as they rise out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
On December 11, Mattress Advisor will join the Beds for Kids team in personally delivering mattresses to children in the area who are currently sleeping without one. “We’re thrilled to work with Mattress Advisor to commence our Thousand Bed Challenge,” adds Amanda Ross, Managing Director at Beds for Kids. “Thanks to their team, we’re now 119 beds closer to our goal, which is a great start to the giving season.”
