Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to see every person that suffers from the incurable illnesses of narcolepsy or other severe sleep disorder, lives the best life that they can. This all begins with their quality of sleep. For a healthy person to sleep on an old lumpy mattress would cause a high level of discomfort in their daily life. For a person suffering from Narcolepsy or other severe sleep disorder, sleeping on that same mattress, costs them the majority of their time. Without the ability to capitalize on what little restorative sleep their body allows, they end up with none. This means that they can't work, have fun, or spend time with their children and families. If we can provide them a high quality bed, they can begin to live a better, healthier, more fulfilling life and that is what we all deserve.

There are several parts to our strategies. First is to increase awareness. Most people are unfamiliar with Narcolepsy and therefore are unfamiliar with the need for a high quality bed. We plan to increase awareness through social media, branding, celebrity endorsements and partnering with other awareness organizations like the Narcolepsy Network. Second, we rely heavily on donations. Donations from mattress stores local to our applicants as well as monetary donations from the general public. Third we try to entice corporate sponsors. And finally we rely on major fundraising events a couple of times a year.

Our strongest capability is our Board of directors. On our board we have a person who suffers from narcolepsy and is the face of the company. She has the ability to communicate with our applicants in a way that no healthy person can because she understands the struggle. We have a project manager with almost twenty years of experience. We also have two very savvy business people who want to see us succeed.

Our organization is brand new. We have put together an excellent board of directors, incorporated, filed our tax forms and received our letter of determination from the IRS. We have built our website, established our presence on social media and created an application system. We have begun accepting applications. We have applied for several grants and already received one. We are looking toward establishing funding from several sources and providing high quality beds to as many applicants as possible.

Founder

Mrs. Christi C Suthoff

Christi is a woman suffering from Narcolepsy. Through her struggle and friendships with other people struggling, she recognized the need for an organization to provide some relief to people suffering from the same illness and others like it. Because of the huge demand for relief and the lack of any organization providing it, she decided to found Sleepy Heads Inc.
