Melissa from Detroit, Michigan

Bed bugs destroyed my kids' mattresses. They need a healthy night's sleep again.

Sleeping on the floor is no way for my children to get a good night's rest. Meeting this need will mean my kids can sleep soundly again.


I am a single mom of 3 beautiful children. Due to high cost of child care I only can work part time.

My goal is to enter the healthcare field, and to become a RN, I want to gain a better understanding of my child's illnesses and provide help for others.

I need bed for my children. We had to throw all of them out 'cause of bed bugs. Now my children are sleeping on the cold floor and it is affecting their health.

Meeting this need will help me because they will finally be able to get off of the floor and sleep soundly. It will help control their colds and illnesses and live healthier lives.
