National Napping Day Giveaway! (Queen Size Protect-A-Bed Premium Mattress Cover)

Today is National Napping Day!  I don't know what genius came up with this holiday, but they should be commended.  Especially since we all lost an hour of sleep this weekend.  There hasn't been any success in getting the schools, goverment and businesses to honor it properly by letting everyone nap, but Protect-A-Bed is celebrating in a big way. 

When you lie down to take a nap, you certainly don't want to have the sniffles after getting up.  According to Protect-A-Bed,
Research shows 10 percent of the general public and as many as 90 percent of people with allergic asthma (depending on the study you read) have an allergy to dust mites. And, dust mites love spoiling our napping refuge, taking up residence in mattresses and pillows. In fact, as many as two million dust mites can thrive in an unprotected mattress.  Besides dust mites, it’s not unusual for other allergy triggers like pollen and pet dander to become trapped within mattresses. By using a mattress protector, allergy sufferers can create an impermeable barrier between themselves and the allergens within their bed. By coupling mattress protection with pillow protectors that seal allergens within pillows, people can create a virtually allergy-free nap space.
Protect-A-Bed offers  a complete line of protective bedding products to create a Healthy Sleep Zone.  The company developed the proprietary Miracle Membrane® and patented Bug Lock® and Secure Seal®, which help create a dry, bed bug free, anti-allergy sleep zone for people of all ages. Protect-A-Bed products are listed as a Class 1 Medical Device with the Food and Drug Administration and have received the Good Housekeeping Seal. For more information, visit http://www.protectabed.com/.

Today only, Protect-A-Bed will be hosting a Twitter contest where they will be giving away sets of Premium Pillow Protectors to those who share the funniest place they've ever taken a nap. To enter, follow @Protect_A_Bed on Twitter and use the hashtag #nappingday to share your funniest or strangest nap location.


But here is the best part, Protect-A-Bed is also givign away one of my lucky readers a Queen Size Protect-A-Bed Premium Mattress Cover (retail value $79.99). These mattress protectors create a comfortable, allergy-free nap environment.
