Sleeping Children Around the World, a 100% charity, held its first ever Sleep Day on Friday, November 4th, 2016.

In 2017 plan to join us for the second annual event on November 3rd.  We encourage all Canadians to participate by going to school or work in your pyjamas in preparation for the end of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, November 5th.

By providing a small donation, you can help improve the lives of countless children in developing countries with the aid of a much needed bedkit. To support a country's local economy, bedkits are created in the country of distribution, and include important items integral to a child's growth: a mattress and bedding, mosquito nets, and a backpack and school supplies. Visit the Bedkits page to learn more.

Your participation on November 3rd is a simple yet impactful way to give children who are less fortunate a chance to thrive in challenging conditions. Sleep Day is generously sponsored by Sleep Country Canada with support from Choice Hotels.
