We're gearing up for one of the greatest achievements in history - Bunks Across America! Our goal is to unite the nation to break a Guinness Book World Record and do good simultaneously. We're going to attempt to build 2,500 bunk beds (or 5,000 beds) on June 15th, 2019, and we can use all the help we can get!
Bunks Across America is a day for communities nationwide to get together to build beds for children who don’t have beds to sleep in. This day should stand as a revelation to those who don’t know there is a problem and a beacon of hope to those who don’t know there is a solution. We want as many people as possible to get involved to be a part of the solution.
As always, our goal is that "no kid sleeps on the floor in our town", we're just taking it to a whole new level during this one-day event.
There are 3 ways to help: Volunteer on Build Day, Make a Donation, or Sponsor a Build near you
Volunteer to Join a Build Near You
If you would like to help a Chapter build on June 15th, it's easy!
We take a pile of wood and with drills, sanders, saws and paint brushes, bunk beds are completed. Our simple design is easy to follow and takes no woodworking experience to learn. Experienced volunteers will show and teach other volunteers (such as yourself) the different stages of the construction process.
Make a Donation to Help with a Build
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is volunteer-driven and donation-driven. Over 90% of donations we receive go towards:
- Purchasing materials for beds
- Bed assembly and delivery
- Building and improving our organization
The donations we get from individuals, service groups or corporations determine how many beds we can produce and deliver. You can find more info on donating here.
Sponsor a Build
We are always looking for sponsors of individual builds. If you would like to sponsor a sheet set, a pillow, or even a whole bunk bed; you can view those sponsorship opportunties here.
If you are a corporation that is not looking to just support a single chapter but are looking to support our entire organization, you can learn more about corporate sponsorships here.
Our mission for Bunks Across America is to get as many kids off the floor as we can. If the opportunities listed above aren’t right for you, spreading the word about Bunks Across America is more than enough!
