This February we are challenging you to sleep on the floor for a week of your choice. Everyone’s challenge will be different and you can decide how difficult you want to make it. Will you sleep on carpet or a mat, under a blanket or in a sleeping bag, how about a pillow? You can choose how challenging you want to make it once you sign up. The money you raise from donations can help to buy a bed for one of our kids and their family who spend every night sleeping on the cold, hard floor.
