You know how you feel when you don’t get a good night’s sleep. You might be grumpy, tired or find it hard to concentrate. That was a reality for me for years before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and got my CPAP machine. That was a defining moment in my life and my happiness and health changed dramatically from that point forward.
I was less grumpy.
I didn’t feel the need to nap during the day.
I only had 2 colds in a 10 year period. Not kidding.
It made me think about children who don’t have a decent bed – or any bed at all for that reason. And with today’s economy it’s happening more and more.
I was introduced to an organization called Pajama Program. Watch this video…..
Imagine that children have never owned a pair of pajamas. That they go to bed every night without the warm fuzzy goodnight of a parent reading them a bedtime story.
These are children that may not get a good meal. May not have clean clothes to wear to school. And may have no one to greet them with a snack when they get home. The least they can have is a pair of PJ’s and a book to read at night. This is the foundation of the Pajama Program. This organization, by providing new pajamas and books to children in need, is helping kids get a better night’s sleep.
This will translate to better health, better grades and happier children.
Join me in supporting this organization – the Better Sleep Council and the Stop Sleeping Around campaign is donating $100 to the organization on behalf of me and my readers. Please take the time to find out about them and if so inclined give them some support – by perhaps sharing this post or video on your wall, twitter, or anywhere you can.
Thanks for your support.
This was a sponsored campaign with the Better Sleep Council.
