The Best Way to Spread Holiday Cheer is Giving Back to Foster Children This Year!

Mattress Firm Denver-44.jpg

Imagine being a child and told you’re being taken away from those you love the most. You’re given a trash bag and told to pack as many of your belongings as you can. For whatever reason, and through no fault of your own, you are now being taken to a completely new place, without many of the comforts you are used to. And now more than ever, you're uncertain of what your future holds.

Beyond the unease and uncertainty that many children feel while in foster care, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time for foster youth. That's why Mattress Firm is passionate about working with our local communities to make the holiday season a little brighter for these kiddos.

This holiday season Mattress Firm Elves were able to give big and give back to children in foster care through our partnership with the Ticket to Dream Foundation.

For the fourth year in a row, Mattress Firm Elves across the country volunteered their time to hand-deliver toys collected during the Mattress Firm Bears and Bedtime Toys Drive to children in foster care in our local communities.

In partnership with local nonprofit partners, our Mattress Firm Elves in Denver and Houston delivered toys to children in foster care during the month of December. Each event was a huge success and we hope to have spread a little extra joy this holiday season!

During a time dominated by sales, demands for people to buy more, giveaways and doorbusters, it’s easy to get caught up in giving your time and energy to things that distract your focus from some of the true reasons for the holiday season – family, tradition and generosity.

Should You Share Your Bed With Your Dog? Top Things to Consider...When it comes to getting the best rest possible, there are many considerations, including your bed, sleep environment and night routines.

That’s right — one of the most common questions amongst pet owners when it comes to their best sleep is: “Should I let my dog sleep in my bed?”
