We are excited to kick off our 2019 “Let’s Get #BeyondSleepy!” fundraising and IH awareness campaign! It’s time to print or make your own “Let’s Get #BeyondSleepy!” sign and help spread awareness of IH and the Hypersomnia Foundation. Grab your sign and take pictures of you doing what you love… spending time with family, gardening, walking the dog, watching TV, doing crafts… whatever you do that makes you smile. The Hypersomnia Foundation funds research to increase the understanding of IH and to discover new treatments so people with IH can do the activities they love more often and live their life #BeyondSleepy.
Help spread awareness by sending us your “Let’s Get #BeyondSleepy!” pictures at , or post on your social media with the hashtag #BeyondSleepy. Be sure to make your post public and tag the Hypersomnia Foundation so we can “like” and repost.
#GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2019, and this year, in addition to making a donation to the Hypersomnia Foundation, we want to know what inspires you to give back and how you are making a meaningful impact. Send us your #MyGivingStory of why you support the Hypersomnia Foundation. We’ll share it with #GivingTuesday, who may choose your story to share on their global network. If selected, the Hypersomnia Foundation could win up to $10,000! Plus, your story could inspire others with IH to speak out, seek help, donate, and support the outreach efforts of the Hypersomnia Foundation.
It is our mission to serve individuals with idiopathic hypersomnia and related sleep disorders, including caregivers, medical professionals, and researchers. We provide resources, information, and educational materials to build awareness and empower individuals with IH. We support advocacy efforts and fund research to increase the understanding of IH and to discover possible treatments.
EDUCATION, AWARENESS, ADVOCACY, OUTREACH, and RESEARCH are the foundations of the HF. These are the pillars we care deeply about and how we connect and empower the IH community. With your support, we will continue to serve as the premier resource for individuals with IH, their families, health care providers and government agencies who want to know about the symptoms and treatment of idiopathic hypersomnia and related sleep disorders.
