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 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 to reduce expenses and volunteer time. We couldn't do it without the support of our amazing customers, suppliers and advocates.
Our biggest community endeavor is to build and donate more than 350 organic pillows. This year, our volunteers provided pillows for homeless vets at Seattle's Compass Housing, Eastside clients of Congregations for the Homeless, incoming students at Bastyr University and, just last week, a group of Stanford University graduate fellows.

A big believer in the power of education, we proudly fund Soaring Heart scholarships at Bastyr University (natural sleep studies), the Pride Foundation (in mental health) and Seattle Central Community College (in support of their small business, sewing design and culinary programs). We also support the great work being done by non-profits like "Toxic-Free Future," El Centro de La Raza and the Seattle Good Business Network in their efforts to promote locally made products.
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.

No one likes tax season. Regardless of your tax filing status, it’s always a stressful undertaking. While we certainly can’t change the April 15th deadline we can do our part to reduce the amount of taxes you have to pay this tax season. Purchase any Soaring Heart product in-store at our Fremont or newly opened Bellevue location through April 30th and we will pay your sales tax, regardless of the size of the purchase.
Soaring Heart is proud to support cancer research and PBS's newest documentary presented by Ken Burns - Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies. Like so many of us, our family has been touched by cancer, and our business works everyday to provide comfort to people struggling with its' effects. This is why we've supported cancer research and patients through the years with gifts of bedding, fund raisers, and direct contribution.
This weekend Soaring Heart Natural Beds is celebrating the Seahawks making the playoffs with our 12 for 12 deal: any purchase of $1200 or more gets special financing for 12 months*.
We could write an entire book—let alone a blog post!—on how much proper sleep contributes to success both on and off the field, but quite honestly, we're just excited to see the Seahawks face off against the Packers. We’ve been proud fans of the Seahawks ever since our founding in this eclectic, passionate city, way back in 1982.
