You just made six patients at Providence extremely comfortable

Jan 11, 2017

#BetterBeds for our patients
Through the generosity of our donors, six patients at Providence Healthcare will be receiving new, more comfortable mattresses! Higher quality mattresses directly lead to an increased quality of care for the patient. The mattresses we will now be able to purchase are known to:

  • improve wound healing time
  • reduce severity of wounds
  • reduce pain while in pain
  • improve the quality of sleep

Exceeding our goal
Our ambitious goal was to raise $21,000 in 21 days and not only did we reach our target, we exceeded it! In total, we raised for $23,980 from 36 donors for the #BetterBeds e-appeal. We purposely kicked off the fundraising on the Tuesday after American Thanksgiving, now known as #GivingTuesday, a new global day that promotes ‘giving back.’ #GivingTuesday has become an unofficial kick-off to the giving season.

We definitely saw this generous spirit here at Providence Healthcare as one anonymous donor pledged to match every dollar donated to this campaign up to $10,000. After this was announced, more than 20 additional donations flooded in, empowering our community to come together and collectively exceed our goal. We couldn’t be happier!

Our ‘big’ goal here is to eventually replace ALL mattresses at Providence Healthcare so this is the start of something amazing, thanks to our friends in the community, like you.
