Change starts with a good night’s sleep – BEDGEAR’s mission is to inspire the best in every individual and create a peaceful tomorrow for our people and our planet. By bringing inspiration and innovation to people around the world, we aim to support communities in need across the globe.
When Hurricane Harvey left thousands of families displaced, BEDGEAR pledged to support the recovery efforts for its victims. BEDGEAR donated all online proceeds for a day to the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation, which benefited families and children affected by the hurricane. Additionally, a donation of pillows and blankets went to the relief efforts of the Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Furniture Bank. In total, nearly half a million dollars in product and monetary donations were donated, and matched by Mark Cuban, to support home rebuilding.
BEDGEAR and Linden Mae Bartell, the little girl whose video telling Santa she wanted a “nap” for Christmas went viral, worked with the Houston Furniture Bank to distribute our bedding products to those still recovering from the hurricane devastation. BEDGEAR has contributed hundreds of pillows, blankets and sheets to the Houston Furniture Bank, helping support the mission of improving people’s lives with the gift of sleep. We look forward to continuing our support of such an impactful charity in the coming years ahead.
In response to the catastrophic damage that Hurricane Maria brought to the island of Puerto Rico, BEDGEAR, working with Rooms To Go, responded with a donations-based campaign aimed to provide support for the U.S. citizens that were left without basic necessities. Through the BEDGEAR Foundation, employees and the public were encouraged to make monetary donations, which the BEDGEAR team used to buy supplies in the highest demand by those in Puerto Rico.
Partnering with Rooms To Go, BEDGEAR shipped hundreds of construction kits, baby kits, over 400 pounds of pet food and 180 sleep kits directly to areas in the greatest need.

BEDGEAR donated hundreds of pillows, blankets and sheets for kids and adults that lost their homes to support the outreach efforts of Sleep City Beds in response to the wildfires that devastated Sonoma, Napa and Solano counties in Northern California. Their Windsor store manager, Mark Luce, lost everything in the fires and 7 employees were also forced to evacuate. Teams from Sleep City Beds spread the word locally about the available goods and they individually delivered our product, along with donated mattresses, to those in need. In addition to reaching evacuees whose homes were destroyed, some donations also went to fire fighters who came to the area from out of town to help battle the fires.
BEDGEAR is a proud partner of Ashley HomeStore’s “Hope To Dream” Program to help deliver the gift of sleep to kids. The Hope to Dream Program ensures that every child around the world has a clean, unused mattress to call their own. The retailer donates a portion of proceeds from every mattress sale at participating locations to its Hope to Dream program and provides a free twin mattress, bed frame, sheets, blankets and pillows to under-privileged children. Since 2010, as part of its partnership, BEDGEAR has donated hundreds of pillows, sheet sets and mattress protectors to help fill children’s sleep needs.

Every year BEDGEAR holds IMPACT Day, where both the New York and Rock Hill offices work together with a local charity to give back to the community. Last year, in partnership with Pilgrims’ Inn, BEDGEAR assembled hundreds of care packages for homeless women and children currently living in the shelter. As a business in York County, it is part of BEDGEAR’s mission and responsibility to give back to the community. The care packages for women and children included essentials such as household items, coats, kids pillows and school supplies. The team is looking forward to giving back again this holiday season.
