Chirofoam™ will donate 1 Bedkit for every mattress sold.
Since it’s founding in 1970, Sleeping Children Around The World (SCAW) has raised over $40 million to provide bedkits for children in 34 countries. They have helped over one million children by 2009.
Their purpose is crystal clear: give every child the opportunity to have a good night’s sleep. With sleep, the promise of a better tomorrow is realized.
The consequences of deprived sleep are well documented. It is a fact that poor sleep leads to long term issues, especially in young children. Sleep has tremendous effects on health, memory, emotions and academic potential. No child should ever be deprived of a peaceful sleep.
Sleeping Children Around The World and their core values:
Bedkits have benefited more than a million children in 34 developing countries around the world and are largely comprised of the following items:
All items are sourced locally where possible, with positive economic impact to the local community.
Volunteerism takes on a new definition at Sleeping Children, because it means more than just giving back. They believe their volunteers get a lot more than they give; they actually nourish their own humanity.
At Sleeping Children there are three distinct kinds of volunteers required to mount a global initiative such as ours. More than 2000 volunteers are from all over the world.
With every purchase of a Chirofoam mattress, we will donate a Bedkit to a child in need. A bedkit provides a child with the means to go on thriving and the promise that the world holds a brighter future.
These Bedkits provide a child with the basic necessities for sleep. This transforms the life of that child and these tools have a lasting effect on the entire family.
