Military Nonprofit Announces “Thank You, Military” Sweepstakes and Other Exciting Initiatives in Honor of Military Family Appreciation Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As they have for the past six years, Blue Star Families and Sleep Number Corporation (Nasdaq: SNBR) are joining forces this NFL season to support the health and wellness of military families.Together they will surprise two military families, including Guard and Reserves, with a Sleep Number 360® smart bed as part of the “Thank You, Military” sweepstakes. The 360®smart bed is individually adjustable for each sleeper and effortlessly responds throughout the night for optimal comfort and proven quality sleep.

Additionally, through Sleep Number’s partnership with the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings, Sleep Number will donate $2,000 to Blue Star Families for every touchdown pass thrown by Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, up to $100,000, now through November 8.

More surprises are expected to follow throughout the season, culminating in Military Appreciation Month in November.

“Military families tell Blue Star Families their challenges through our annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey,” said Kathy Roth-Douquet, CEO of Blue Star Families. “And the survey revealed that many –more than a third –aren’t getting the sleep they need to function effectively. We took this data to Sleep Number. Together, we created these programs to bring awareness to this issue and award military families with beds designed to improve their sleep quality. We’re honored to work with Sleep Number and are grateful they raised their hand to help.”

“Military families sacrifice so much so we can all sleep well at night,” added Kevin Brown, Chief Marketing Officer, Sleep Number. “Now more than ever, military families – like all of us – need quality sleep to ensure they can handle the physical, mental, and emotional stressors that they must endure. We are honored to support these military heroes by delivering proven quality sleep and helping to ensure their health and wellness in appreciation for their services.”

Entries for the “Thank You, Military” sweepstakes are now open. Military supporters can nominate a deserving service member family from October 1thruOctober 31, 2020 here.

Two winners will then be selected and honored by Blue Star Families and Sleep Number in mid-November. Winners will receive a Sleep Number 360 smart bed, an Integrated base, Lyocell Ultra sheet set, two standard ComfortFit™pillows, and a Total Protection Mattress Pad.
