1% in Gratitude

1% in Gratitude


Thank you.  Of the many things we are grateful for in this past year, we are happy to announce that Soaring Heart has met its goal to direct 1% of our 2012 gross revenues to charitable causes.  1% may sound like just another number, but for a small business like ours, this represents a huge commitment from our entire team, as well as our customers and suppliers, to volunteer our time, reduce our expenses, and take on community work when we are already busy helping you, our valuable customers and advocates. 

In 2012 our biggest community endeavor was to build and donate more than 250 of our all organic pillows to support three fantastic causes – the nurses at Seattle Children’s Hospital, the patients at the Fred Hutch Cancer Center’s Pete Gross House, and a whole bunch of very happy school kids at the Hutch’s onsite school for families of cancer patients (if you’ve been watching our blog through the year – you’ve seen these fun-filled photos!).  We were also able to volunteer in our local United Way’s annual Day of Caring and contribute to organizations like the Foundation for Early Learning, Gilda’s Club for Cancer Treatment Support, Seattle’s Healing Center for kids grieving the loss of a family member, and shelters for the homeless or folks in recovery who could directly benefit from our donations of bedding. 

At Soaring Heart we believe we all sleep better knowing we are part of healthy, vibrant communities.  While we may not have the resources to help everyone, we are committed to doing our part to provide great sleep for many of those facing life challenges in the communities we serve.  We know the comfort you feel surrounded by our hand-crafted bedding may not cure all aches and pains – but we certainly hope your heart will soar when you know every stitch surrounding you has been placed there by someone who cares.

We are grateful for your patronage – and we look forward to your next visit to our shop or website.
