My Home Matters My Life Matters 2018

During the last weekend in May, we pledged to donate 1% of our total sales, and $50 for every mattress set we sold to support mental health initiatives in our communities.

We are pleased to announce we accumulated a total of $2,000 in donations, which we split between Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council and the Canadian Mental Health Association Grey Bruce.  Thanks to everyone who came out that weekend to show their support!
