Raising awareness and support for those affected by poverty in America In 2009, nearly 44 million people in the US were living in poverty (according to the United States Census).

Currently, there are more homeless children in the U.S. than at any other time since the Great Depression. Unfortunately, the stresses of homelessness often lead to anxiety, depression, poor sleep habits, and behavioral issues. 1.5 million American children go to sleep without a home each year. To help these homeless children, Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages every year. Each child receives a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket that can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal that can become a cherished friend. To help bring sweeter dreams to homeless children, give to Project Night Night here: Learn more about Project Night Night initiatives here:
