On March 11-13, people and pets around the world took to their beds for SLEEP IN 2016 (#SLEEPIN2016). Participants spent a remarkable 2,017 hours in bed collectively to make peace with sleep! Our second annual SLEEP IN brought together 92 participants from 10 countries (including Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the Philippines, South Africa and Sweden) and 31 US states.
Hours in Bed
Together, our participants raised $6,110. Funds raised will provide critical support for Project Sleep’s current programming (including the Jack & Julie Narcolepsy Scholarship, Sleep Walk series, and NARCOLEPSY: NOT ALONE™ campaign) and help expand future efforts to reach people affected by sleep disorders and other barriers to sleep health.
We have some highlights to share and people to thank!
Friday’s InstaSleepIn kicked things off with participants sharing photos of themselves (and their pets) getting ready for bed.
On Saturday, we hosted an official SLEEP IN Twitter Chat (#SLEEPIN2016).
