JLC LIVE is partnering with Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP), an organization started in Kimberly, Idaho in 2012 by fellow JLC LIVE attendee, Luke Mickelson. Their purpose–to build beds for children living without the luxury of sleeping in their own bed or even laying their heads on a pillow.
Every bed they build is handcrafted and constructed by volunteers who donate their time to help children in their community. SHP now has almost 100 chapters across the country helping children in almost every state.
This year, we are bringing in the Eugene Chapter of SHP to JLC LIVE onto the show floor. We will be helping the chapter build 20 beds (our goal), who will then deliver them to children in the local community. We're inviting our attendees to donate a little time to take part in our bed build. More information on our bed build will be available as we work out the details.
If you think you may be too busy on the show floor but want to help, donations can be made when registering for JLC LIVE. Donations can also be made by visiting the SHP website.
