Help 80 Kids Get New Beds! Your donation helps My Very Own Bed provide new beds and Dream Kits to kids throughout the Twin Cities.

We met our match for Give to the Max Day! Thank you to Cornerstone Automotive and Kris Lindahl Real Estate for generously donating $7000 in matching gifts and to our individual donors for helping us meet the match so early in this campaign. Every $250 raised helps support one more child receiving a bed of their very own. And each donation of any size gives My Very Own Bed a chance to win up to $10,000 in GiveMN prizes. Could you help us keep going and raise $20,000 to help 80 more kids?


A bed is a place for a child to sleep, dream, and hope for the future. Help kids in our community get healthy sleep with the gift of a new bed!

My Very Own Bed provides new beds and linens to children of families who have recently secured stable housing in the Twin Cities. For families who have experienced homelessness, finding stable housing is an exciting and powerful step. But it’s not the end of the story: Families often struggle to afford furnishings for their new home, including beds for their children.


Why beds?

Research shows that providing furniture to low-income families helps improve their housing stability by reducing some of their ongoing financial stress and helping make the new housing feel more like a home.

My Very Own Bed focuses on new beds for kids because of the health benefits that a comfortable place to sleep provides children. Good sleep helps children fight off illness, enhances their growth, improves their confidence and mental health, and helps them perform better in school.

For a kid, a bed is more than a piece of furniture. It’s a place to bounce, to launch superhero flights, and a place to snuggle under the covers on a cold night or when they’re sick. The comfort of a real bed allows children to enter the stages of sleep that allow them to wake up fully rested. 

Your gift in any amount supports children having a place to sleep, dream, and grow.

$75 — Provides a personalized Dream Kit that includes sheets, a blanket, a pillow, a mattress pad, a stuffed animal, and a book.

$150 — Supplies a new mattress and platform frame to help a child get a good night's sleep.

$250 — Front door delivery of a new bed and Dream Kit to a child by My Very Own Bed.

"Their room means more now because they have all the things they need. They enjoy the theme of their room and they are so proud of their bed. They want to show their room to family and friends! They always say, 'Do you wanna see my room?' to whoever comes over." — Parent of a child who received a new bed this year

Thank you for your generous support!
