Last week I shared about why I love working in the nonprofit sector. Today I want to share my most favorite thing about charities - they are filled with people who see a need and then find a way to fill it.
Sleepyhead Beds exemplifies this spirit to a T. It was started by Monica Starr who, while volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate, discovered that many children simply don't have a bed of their own to sleep on every night. She saw that need and has started a charity to fill it. Her organization is small (too small, in fact, to qualify for review by the BBB) and her mission is simple: to provide a cozy bed and warm bedding to children in need. The team at Sleepyhead Beds can tell you lots about why getting a good night's sleep is important for kids, but today I simply want to applaud Monica Starr for exemplifying the very best in the charitable sector. She saw a need and found a way to fill it. Bravo and Thank You.
