Millie's February on the floor

I am sleeping on the floor for a week to lift a child off the ground and into their first bed

This February, I am spending a week sleeping on the floor to raise money to buy a bed for a family in Ethiopia. There are families who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor so I'm taking on the "February on the floor" challenge so that they no longer have to and instead can sleep in a comfortable bed. 

I want to do this because I want to help children to get beds so that they can have a better nights sleep and feel better in the morning. I have realised it is very uncomfortable sleeping on the floor even with my duvet. I find it quite hard to get to sleep as the floor is hard. I’m looking forward to getting back into my bed and hoping I can give people their first bed.

A week of discomfort for me will be completely worth it as I know that a bed will transform a family's life. Please give generously as I would love to give the gift of a bed to as many families as possible. I can't wait to update you with photos and details of my experience. I'll also share the photos I will receive of the families whose lives have been changed because of your support. 

Thank you 


Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for almost 4,000 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
