"Sleep Number's mission is to improve lives by individualizing sleep
experiences. We are excited to help over one million young people
achieve life-changing sleep through our products and sleep expertise,"
said Shelly Ibach, president and CEO of Sleep Number. "We believe
helping future generations achieve quality sleep can and will change the
world. Excellent sleep is essential to a healthier and happier society,
strengthening our connections with one another, and expanding the
frontier of what's possible."

Sleep Number's three focus areas for improving youths' sleep are:

  • Research and data: Working directly with youth to understand
    their sleep habits and leveraging Sleep Number's sleep insights, plus
    their algorithm and biometric database, to inform how to achieve
    high-quality sleep.
  • Training and advocacy: Turning understanding into action by
    partnering with youth, parents, educators and other organizations
    focused on youth well-being.
  • Product donations: Making better sleep a reality for youth.

Sleep Number is partnering with leading national organizations focused
on youth health and wellness initiatives to achieve their commitment.
For example, Sleep Number will bring the sleep element to the exercise,
nutrition and support programs of GENYOUth,
Alliance
for a Healthier Generation
and Good360.

"We share Sleep Number's dedication and commitment to improving the
health and well-being of our nation's youth," said Alexis Glick,
GENYOUth Chief Executive Officer. "We are excited to be partnering with
Sleep Number to better understand the sleep behaviors of today's
students and to gain insights into any barriers that could impact their
achievement of a healthy sleep regimen, which is essential to their
ability to be healthy, high-achieving youth."

"For more than a decade, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation has
helped thousands of schools nationwide ensure their kids are eating
better and moving more," said Howell Wechsler, Healthier Generation's
chief executive officer. "Together with Sleep Number, we can now help
students achieve better quality sleep, which, as research has shown,
positively impacts their overall health, well-being, and academic
achievement."

"Sleep Number recently improved the lives of families affected by
Hurricane Harvey partnering with Good360 to donate one million dollars
of Sleep Number® beds and bedding. The long-term recovery
period after a natural disaster is often overlooked," said Howard
Sherman, Good360 chief executive officer. "Sleep Number's donation of
new beds provided survivors with much needed quality sleep and a sense
of renewed possibility."
