The holiday season is here and everyone is on the lookout for the perfect gift, but it’s time to call off that search….
The Perfect Gift
It’s no secret that Beddy’s are the ultimate gift for anyone on your list, but you may not realize just how many benefits Beddy’s offers to each and every one of your recipients. Not only do they come in colors and prints that will look great in any room, but the quality and comfort are unmatched. Beddy's are perfect for any age. With the genius design and functionality of a zipper, Beddy’s keeps your covers on at night, but also makes making-your-bed in the morning a cinch!
Beddy’s are a dream for the young ones learning to make their bed for the first time, the young-at-heart who may have lost their ability to do this task for themselves, for people with varying special needs and even for some people with other physical challenges. Not only does this provide the independence everyone craves, it also gives them a boost to their confidence knowing they can now make their bed all on their own. When you give the gift of Beddy’s you’re not only giving your loved ones a better night’s sleep and a smoother morning, you’re giving them so much more! Did you know your gift is not only making a difference in the lives of those you love, but is also making a difference in the lives of others as well? That’s right...people you’ve never even met, and you’re making an impact in their lives bigger than you ever could have imagined.
We believe in giving back, and because of you, we are able to do just that. Because of your support, Beddy’s is able to give back in a way we never thought was possible. For each order placed through our website, Beddy’s donates a portion of those proceeds to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Your purchase really does make a difference, not only for the receiver, but in the lives of these children.
Beyond providing financial support to this incredible organization, Beddy’s has the opportunity to plan and carry out wish reveals for some of these special kids, and we’re giving you an inside peek at a few of our latest reveals and the impressive child behind each one.
We are so excited to introduce you to wish kid, Ira. He is a darling 6-year-old with a respiratory disorder and other significant medical conditions. This little boy is quite the fighter and a pillar of joy.
We were honored to be able to plan Ira's Wish Reveal - a special event designed to let him know his wish for a pop-trailer was being granted. Ira’s family was given VIP access to an outdoor Christmas light drive-thru and a special scavenger hunt was planned. After dinosaurs had ran rampant throughout the park, it was up to Ira and his family to find all the missing dinosaur eggs, break them open, and unscramble the clues. After a successful mission, Ira and his family were led to a treasure chest that included gifts for all and the big announcement that he would receive his pop-up trailer!
When the big day came, we couldn’t help but throw in a few extra surprises for him and his family which (of course) included a Beddy’s for every bed in their new trailer.
McKayla is an adorable 11-year-old full of fun and fight. Unusual stomach pain led McKayla’s wise pediatrician to run tests that discovered McKayla’s cancer diagnosis and liver issues. We could not wait to let her know her wish to be a zoo-keeper would soon be granted.
This reveal was extra special as it also happened to fall on McKayla’s birthday. We put the “art” in “party” and decided to throw a virtual surprise paint party for her and her friends. All guests received a paint kit and a birthday box of party supplies, before joining a call for step-by-step instructions via zoom.
The party was done but the fun was not, McKayla stepped outside for the biggest reveal. Complete with an animal-themed birthday cake and balloon arch, this animal-lover's heart was left completely full.
Isabel was given the nickname “hummingbird” because she’s always on the move. Her fun and positive outlook on life, keeps her buzzing with ideas. At six-months-old it was discovered that Isabel had only one partially functioning kidney and after years of doing all that they could do to delay the inevitable, it became obvious that she was in desperate need of a transplant. Their family was blessed with a true miracle when her older brother (through adoption and not blood related) was a match and volunteered to be the donor.
This particular wish reveal was grand in every sense of the word! The Springville, UT High School cheerleaders, marching band, and color guard all joined in the festivities to let Isabel know her wish for a shopping spree was being granted!
And as if that wasn't enough, we thought we'd get Isabel some training for her shopping spree by sending her and her family on a “shopping-spree training camp” that night! They were whisked away in a party van and taken to Target where each and every member of their family was provided a $100 gift card and 30 minutes to get whatever they wanted. Outfitted with custom shopping bags, the family shopped 'til they dropped!
Jocelyn is a happy and outgoing little girl. She is sassy, feisty, and friendly. She loves to color, paint and play outside but above all else…. Jocelyn is OBSESSED with all things Disney!
In May of 2019, Jocelyn’s family received the heartbreaking news that she was being diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Jocelyn was only 17-months-old at the time. Following her diagnosis, Jocelyn went through a year of chemotherapy and radiation. In July of 2020 Jocelyn’s family was once again delivered the devastating news that Jocelyn had relapsed. In May of 2021, Jocelyn underwent surgery and additional rounds of treatments.
Although typically we participate in the “wish reveal”, this time we assisted with the actual “wish day". Her wish was to be a princess for the day.
After a tea party for family members at the prestigious Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah (with a few surprises, of course 😉), the guests were then moved to the next location for Jocelyn’s Royal Ball. They were greeted by the most exquisite horse-drawn carriage and taken on a short ride. When entering the ballroom, they found all their family and friends, along with 14 other special guests… Moana, Cinderella and every other princess in between. All were in attendance for Jocelyn’s special day.
After a catered dinner and a brief show by performers, Jocelyn danced the night away before being showered with gifts.
Boston is a 6-year-old boy with a big personality and great sense of humor. He loves Legos, Star Wars and dinosaurs. When he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, his life was turned upside down, but learning that his condition qualified him to receive a wish, gave him hope during a difficult time.
In knowing Boston loves dinosaurs, we had the perfect location in mind - the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden, UT and arranged for Boston and his family to be given exclusive access and a guided tour from the residential paleontologist.
Between exhibits, the family enjoyed two short activities before Boston was given a personalized lab coat and invited into the lab to assist on a real dinosaur fossil.
After completing his work, Boston and his family went back outside for one more surprise. The Beddy’s team finally revealed his wish for a hot tub would soon be granted!
Making wishes come true for these special kids is more fulfilling than we could ever have dreamed. We always come away from these special events with full hearts and grateful spirits. Because you support Beddy's, we in turn can pay it forward. Your purchases really do make a difference!
