The 1000 Bed Challenge

The 1000 Bed Challenge A Project of A Wider Circle

Wydler Brothers partners with A Wider Circle

A Wider Circle's mission is to end poverty. The organization's holistic approach focuses on providing essential items such as beds, dressers, couches and dining room tables and chairs, as well as comprehensive job training. One of the organization's greatest needs is beds. Last year, A Wider Circle received more than 12,000 requests for beds, many of which came from mothers and fathers whose children are sleeping on the floor.

In response to this need, Wydler Brothers Real Estate, a Washington, DC-based brokerage, has pledged to donate 1,000 beds, with the help of many local partners. For every client who buys or sells a home with Wydler Brothers in 2016, the lead agent will donate a bed to the campaign. In addition, their strategic partners KVS Title; Client First Settlements; Jonathan Neal with Metropolitan Moving and Storage; Patrick Gardner with 1st Portfolio Lending; Jonathan Okun and Ryan Dailey with Prosperity Mortgage; and Mark Hennessy with State Farm Insurance have joined in the effort and will also donate a bed to the campaign if they are involved in the transaction. Join the 1000 Bed Challenge!

How can I help?

It brings tears to my eyes knowing that now my kids can rest peacefully and comfortably." – Angela, served November 2014

With your support, we can provide dignity to even more mothers like Angela, who can now rest easier knowing her children will get a good night's sleep. The average cost for A Wider Circle to purchase a new bed for one child or adult is $150.
