OAKLAND, Calif., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Leesa Sleep and Baron Davis donate 300 mattresses to the Oakland Public Education Fund, in hopes of providing a comfortable place for the children to rest and dream big. Inspired by Leesa's commitment to provide a more restful environment for children and families in need, Baron has been a long-time Leesa partner after learning about their mission and commitment to provide better rest for children and families in need across the United States.
Leesa is proud to add the Oakland Public Education Fund to their network of giving partners, making them one of over 1,000 giving partners across the US, Canada and Europe, committed to providing a safe place to rest for families and children. The Oakland Public Education Fund is devoted to raising money and providing aid to the children of the Oakland school system and has raised over $60 million in the last five years alone.
"I decided to partner with Leesa because they get the importance of giving back to those who need help the most," says Davis. "I'm especially moved today, because I get to see their work make a difference in the Oakland community that's near and dear to my heart."
Leesa sees a bed as more than just a place to sleep, it is a place to rest your head and your heart; to feel safe, and to heal. The company believes that a well-rested world is a better one and that rest is not a privilege, but a right. This is why Leesa has chosen to build the company around a social mission to help provide beds to kids across the United States, so they can wake up healthy and happy.
"It's a privilege to support the selfless work of extraordinary organizations like OPEF, and Leesa is proud to be a part of their impact," notes Jen-Ai Notman, Head of Social Impact at Leesa. "Leesa's mission is to provide deeper rest for everybody, and with this partnership with OPEF we are making that possible for hundreds of kids today."
