For foster children, extracurricular activities are so much more than meets the eye. Team sports mean forging new friendships, running free and feeling pride in a winning goal. Dance class is a chance to feel confident, determined and beautiful. Now, it’s easier than ever to make a difference. Through Mattress Firm’s Dollar Drive, you can support the extracurricular activities that build brighter futures for foster kids.
In just a few steps, you can create a personal campaign page for friends and family to submit a secure and convenient online donation. You have the power to share your fundraising story and reach donors with just the click of a button. Easily import your contacts’ email addresses, and connect your campaign page with Facebook and Twitter to generate even more support. Make sure to send updates about your progress along the way and craft personalized thank-you messages for your donors.

Did you know that extracurricular activities have the power to shape a foster child’s future? The power to help them to dream big and bloom. The power to help them strive for success. And during the Mattress Firm Foster Kids Dollar Drive, we have the power to help!
Together we can provide local foster kids with team sports, dance class, summer camp and field trips—enriching experiences that stay with a child for a lifetime.
Right now, I’m collecting Dollar Drive donations through my convenient and secure online campaign page: [link to personal campaign page]. Please consider contributing a gift in any amount through April 22. If you prefer to donate in person, you can always take your gift to any Mattress Firm store.
At the end of the drive, Mattress Firm will distribute the donations to carefully selected non-profit foster care agency partners. My goal is to collect $X dollars, and I know we can do it! Want to start a Dollar Drive campaign of your own? The steps are simple. Visit the Mattress Firm Foster Kids website (add “click here” or URL or something) to create a page where friends and family can submit a secure and convenient online donation.
Let’s do our part to help local foster children thrive! Every donation is appreciated and every dollar counts. Thank you in advance for your support, and please let me know if you have any questions.
