Luke Mickelson: The Joy of Giving

In this episode of Championship Leadership, we are excited to have with us Luke Mickelson, Executive Director of Sleep in Heavenly Peace Inc. – a non-profit organization dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Luke shares a moving story of how the organization started and what made him decide to finally focus on his passion of helping and quit his job.

With his strong desire to reach out and provide more kids with its own bed, Luke Mickelson was able to influence not just his kids but other people to volunteer and be a part of something bigger than them.

Ten years later, the organization has grown and even expanded in other states and countries. Indeed, Luke Mickelson is a living testament that anyone can and will surely make a difference.
