Sleep well, dream big: $1000 scholarship amount for the winning application
Sleep shapes dreams and dreams shape lives. We are Andrew and Kaye, the founders and creators of Memory Foam Talk. We are in search of the best mattresses, which address the needs of individuals as well as couples, just like us. We think buying a mattress for a couple does not have to be a compromise. When it comes to a couple like us with very different health issues, there must be a mattress that can address all of them. We have tried over 50 mattresses over the last few years, and that makes us quite an expert duo in reviewing and selecting the best of the best from the market.
We started with documenting our experiences with several well-known brands and sprouting brands online. Mattress shopping can be hectic for anyone starting their lives alone or as a new couple. Our reviews consist of memory foam, latex, inner spring and hybrid mattresses, which we have tried over the last year as a part of our journey. We believe that everyone has a right to choose the right mattress for themselves and his or her significant other without making any compromises. Our education and awareness about health problems and the kinds of mattresses on the market have helped us come this far with our simple project. This time, we want to help out bright students with a dream for the future with an exceptional scholarship of USD 1000.
