I have been loving “Fun Fridays” around here lately. But it got me thinking about how much we are often receivers online instead of givers. I believe this community is more than that. So, I’m excited to flip Fun Friday for a change & give back as a community rather than getting this week.
My friend Jen started an organization called Sweet Sleep which distributes beds & mosquito nets to HIV/AIDS orphans in Northern Uganda. Sweet Sweet Sleep’s vision is for every orphaned child in the world to lie down in their own bed reminding them they are loved, protected and cared for with hope for the future through Jesus.
Kind of neat – every bed that Sweet Sleep provides is purchased in the country they are working in. So not only are they providing children with a place to sleep but they’re building into the economy of the country as well. They send volunteer teams several times throughout the year to assemble the beds in the orphanages & show the children they are loved and care for.
Wondering how you can join in on the Fun Friday:Flipped fun & give back? You can help with a one time gift or by becoming a sweet sleep bedhead & donating monthly. It’s easier than you might think…
$8 will buy a net
$10 will buy a Bible
$12 will buy a blanket
$20 will buy just a mattress
$50 will provide an entire bed kit for a child in Uganda (this includes a bed, blanket, bible, & mosquito net)
If you want to give, you can do so right on Sweet Sleep’s site here. Thanks for letting me flip things upside down today!! 🙂
