Project Sleep-In 2017: Register or Donate · Participant Guide · About Narcolepsy
On the weekend of March 10-12, 2017, Project Sleep invites you to join the international #SleepIn2017 to raise awareness about sleep health and sleep disorders during National Sleep Awareness Week. Set up your fundraiser and challenge yourself to stay in bed for 12-48 hours. Ask your friends and family to join you or sponsor your Sleep In to benefit Project Sleep, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to making sleep cool.
By donating/participating in Project Sleep’s #SleepIn2017 you will be joining an international movement of people looking to make PEACE with SLEEP. Whether you are sleepy teen, person with a sleep disorder, supporter, sleep professional, or sleep enthusiast – your SLEEP IN matters. Use your voice, and your bed, to shine light on the night.
It’s FREE to register at CrowdRise.com/sleepIn2017 — however, we encourage you to make the first donation on your fundraising page to inspire your supporters. Once your fundraising page is set up, email your friends and family to challenge them to participate or donate.
Nearly 70 percent of adults report insufficient sleep or rest at least once a month. Almost 70 percent of high school adolescents are not getting enough sleep. An estimated 50 to 70 million Americans chronically suffer from sleep or circadian disorders. Sleep is the misunderstood and often-overlooked pillar of health.
Sleepiness is NOT laziness. By participating in Project Sleep’s Sleep In 2017, we are waking up the world to the importance and power of sleep!
Believing in the value of sleep, Project Sleep aims to improve public health by educating individuals about the importance of sleep health and sleep disorders. Project Sleep will educate and empower individuals using events, campaigns and programs to bring people together and talk about sleep as a pillar of health.
Project Sleep is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for our newly launched Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program. This leadership training program will help people with narcolepsy effectively share their stories through public speaking or writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs, and beyond. Through Rising Voices of Narcolepsy, we will combine the power of authentic real-life stories with expert communication strategies to raise awareness and reduce stigmas for all those facing narcolepsy.
