Blue Star Families and Sleep Number® Surprise Children of Active Duty Military Members

Blue Star Families and Sleep Number® Surprise Children of Active Duty Military Members

Sleep Kits Including Sheets, Pillows, Books and Bears Provided to 100 Kids

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Star Families is proud to announce that it has once again partnered with Sleep Number, a purpose driven company in the health and wellness space, as part of Military Appreciation Month, to surprise 100 children of members of the military with amazing sleep kits.

For the sixth consecutive year, Sleep Number has helped Blue Star Families with their mission to strengthen military families and to create vibrant communities of mutual support by helping military kids achieve better quality sleep. Blue Star Families also seeks to be a voice for, and frontline resource to, America's service members and their families, especially during this unprecedented time. Sleep Number has made a commitment to improve the lives of one million youth by 2025 through quality sleep.

On May 1, 100 lucky kids were selected by Blue Star Families and Sleep Number to receive the free kits.  Those were delivered this week and include: a Sleep Number Kids™ pillow, a twin protection pad, a set of twin sheets, a ZZZ bear bundle, a Sesame Street military kid activity book and a lifetime subscription to the Caribu reading app. The package is valued at $650.

"The Blue Star Families 2019 Military Family Lifestyle Survey found that more than one third of military families aren't getting the sleep they need to function effectively," said Kathy Roth-Douquet, CEO of Blue Star Families. "While we know our sleep kits don't fix the unique challenges military kids face, we do know they bring comfort amidst chaos."
