There are so many wonderful Black owned companies and products that can help support your mental wellness and sleep health.Good Night Sleep Site is committed to supporting and promoting Black owned companies and organizations focused on helping you improve your sleep and overall wellness.
I put this together because I want to do more. It’s something that I should have done long ago. As a white person, parent and business owner, I am taking the time to stop and learn.
I am listening to the Black community and hearing their messages. To start, I will use my platform to support the Black wellness community and its abundant professional resources, experts and amazing products.
Specifically, I’m choosing to highlight the Black owned wellness community because this is the type of information you seek when you come to our website – resources that can help you improve your health and the health of your family.
