THE PROJECT 

BED POVERTY 

AFFECTS OVER 6 MILLION 

PEOPLE IN THE U.S.

THE PROJECT

In every community, there are families in crisis. According to the United States Census Bureau, over 34 million people in the U.S. lived in poverty in 2019, and this number has grown. As many as 1 in 5 families living in poverty cannot afford a bed. Sleep deprivation affects the immune system, memory, one's ability to concentrate, and the overall wellbeing of everyone in the household.

Our mission is simple. We work with grassroots community organizations in New York and Los Angeles to identify families in need of beds and bedding. Then, we buy beds, along with a few other basics, such as pillows, blankets sheets, and towels, and ship them directly to the families. 

Ready to help? Donate today and choose from a range of basic items from $10 for a towel to $250 for a comfy foam mattress for a family in need.

TROUBLE WITH THINKING AND COGNITION

WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM

INCREASED RISK OF DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE

If you’ve ever spent a night tossing and turning, you already know how you’ll feel the next day: tired, cranky, and out of sorts. But missing out on the recommended 7 to 9 hours of shut-eye nightly does more than make you feel groggy and grumpy. The long-term effects of sleep deprivation are real.

It drains your mental abilities and puts your physical health at real risk. Science has linked poor slumber with a number of health problems, from weight gain to a weakened immune system.
