February on the Floor
Updated: Apr 28, 2022
We’re partnering with Stand by Me to provide beds for kids in the communities near Open Arms Village in Kenya and the Denisa Care Center in Romania. Many of them still sleep on the cold floor every night, including some kids that attend Open Arms Academy!
We believe that every child deserves a good night's sleep, so we're partnering with Stand by Me for February on the Floor. And we’re inviting you to join us!
February on the Floor is a fundraising event that aims to bring a huge change to our kids' living conditions and provide them with a bed. Sign up to sleep on the floor and receive your personalized fundraising page and fundraising guide.

“I’m so excited to have an opportunity to work with our new partner Stand By Me to bless kids in the communities we are serving here in Kenya and now Romania!
Join me in a few uncomfortable nights to make sure kids can experience a sweet night’s sleep."
~ Co-founder, Rachel Gallagher

$108.07 can provide a bed frame
In total, $191.51 can buy a bed. It can give a child the opportunity to snuggle into a bed for the first time- bringing them joy and helping them wake up every day rested, refreshed and ready for a day of learning and fun.
Let's see how many kids we can lift off the floor and into their own bed this February!
Thank you for blessing the kids,
