Mattress Firm Foster Kids, through the Ticket to Dream Foundation™, a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, was launched in December 2015 to make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of foster children in need. Our program is designed to provide both in-kind and monetary contributions to non-profit foster care organizations. Our purpose is to support worthy charitable causes and non-profits, with particular emphasis on charities related to foster children.
Did you know that kids and teens who get a good night’s sleep are more likely to do well in school and stay healthy? That’s why Mattress Firm is committed to helping foster kids, and all kids, get a great night’s sleep so they can be successful. The U.S. foster care system is home to over 400,000 children, many of whom have entered the system with few or no possessions of their own. These foster children may struggle to get the proper sleep they need when they’re in a new home or an unfamiliar place.
Having the right sleep routines can help kids and teens get the rest they need. These routines can include giving children favorite sleep-time objects—like pajamas or stuffed animals—to help solidify a bedtime ritual and help kids get a better night’s sleep. For many foster families, however, the cost associated with doing this can be prohibitive.
That’s where the Mattress Firm Foster Kids program comes in—to help fill the gap. Mattress Firm believes foster kids, and all kids, need a good night’s sleep to be successful—and pajamas, bedtime toys and books can help them do just that. For children who are away from their families and have been separated from their siblings, these small donations can mean the world.
Mattress Firm Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation™, has partnered with non-profit foster care partners to improve the lives of our local foster children. Donate today to help local foster kids get better sleep for a better future.
