WHY RELIEF BED®?

SLEEP IS ESSENTIAL

Sleep is the #3 biological need to sustain life, right behind water and food. Proper sleep is critical to a thriving life, no matter your country, creed, or circumstance.

BEDS ARE NEEDED

Mattresses are the #1 requested item by personnel working in the field. Many organizations provide goods & services, but quality beds are often an afterthought.

GOOD SLEEP = GOOD HEALTH

It’s simple: sleep better, function better. We believe that improving sleep health in developing countries is crucial to breaking the poverty cycle.


We understood from inception that we would need to partner with organizations that were “best in class” in many areas to bring this vision to life and to make it a sustainable venture.


Relief Bed® founder and innovator Scott Smalling spent the last 30 years in the bedding and specialty foams market. Most noteworthy in his career, Scott was the original founder of the ComforPedic® brand which manufactured and marketed premium priced memory foam mattresses. While at the helm of ComforPedic® Smalling felt most fulfilled when he was leading outreach and disaster relief projects throughout the US.

In early 2015, Smalling felt a prompt in his heart to create a bed that could be enjoyed by everyone, especially those that don’t have a bed! Relief Bed® is the realization of that dream for Smalling, whereas, he could combine his expertise in providing better sleep with his passion for helping others.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Isaiah 6:8

“Relief Bed® was created to help provide strength, better health, and ultimately, HOPE to people living and working in fragile areas around the world.”
