MORI gifts thousands of sleepsuits to little ones of NHS frontline parents
MORI, creators of the softest and highest-quality clothing for babies, toddlers and children are proud to be supporting NHS parents, who are working on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19 in the UK.
Last month MORI launched their ‘helping NHS parents sleep better’ campaign, where MORI customers could nominate a family member or friend, who works in the NHS, to receive free sleepwear for their little one. This campaign is MORI’s small way of saying thank you, by sharing the gift of sleep to those families who have been working long hours and in some instances are staying away from their family to keep them safe. Overnight the campaign went viral and MORI received thousands of applications. As a small business, they were blown away as the news of the campaign spread far and wide.
MORI have now gifted thousands of sleepsuits and pyjamas to NHS parents across the UK.
Akin Onal, MORI’s founder says: “At MORI we are incredibly grateful for the people who are keeping us going at this time. As a small business we are very proud that we have been able to play our part in supporting the parents in the NHS, as much as we can, and are helping to make sleep time a little softer”
Feedback from NHS parents
“Thanks so much MORI for our wonderful PJs given to us as NHS staff. If my daughter sleeps well that means I sleep well too and a good rest between shifts is essential at the moment. The ribbed pyjamas are so soft and pretty - wish I had some too!”
“Thank you for this beautiful sleepsuit you gave me as a gift to help my little one sleep better”
“Received a gorgeous set of pyjamas for our little girl - which was gifted by MORI via their NHS campaign. We are really blown away with the generosity of this company and also the quality of the product is lovely. Really soft and will be so cosy. The size looks great and the pattern is very neutral. Love it!
Just because we can’t be together, doesn’t mean we can’t give together, so MORI have launched the next stage of their campaign to continue giving a good night’s sleep to NHS parents.
