Company founded by FSB grad Bryan Murphy helps Puerto Ricans affected by hurricanes to rest easier

August 2018

A company founded by a Farmer School graduate has donated nearly 1,500 mattresses to Puerto Ricans affected by a pair of 2017 hurricanes.

Tomorrow Sleep provided the mattresses to groups assisting families impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in September. The hurricanes caused nearly $100 billion in damage.

"The effects of Irma and Maria are still felt in Puerto Rico one year later, with thousands of families still without basic needs like a mattress," Bryan Murphy, President and Founder of Tomorrow Sleep, said. "We are committed to giving back to communities in need. Providing mattresses for families still displaced by the hurricanes is one small way we can contribute to the rebuilding of this region."

Murphy graduated from Miami in 1990. He launched Tomorrow Sleep in 2017 after stints as a vice president at eBay and co-founder of a pair of auto parts and technology companies.

So far, Tomorrow Sleep has donated more than 1,450 mattresses. The company teamed up with Good360, a product philanthropy group that sources and distributes highly needed goods to a network of nonprofits.
