live happy.

We're on a mission to improve the lives of children who are battling with anxiety, depression and the day-to-day challenges of simply being a kid living through a pandemic.  Paperclouds began with the simple idea of putting a book on the lap of every child in Canada.

OUR STORY

...meet the founders

It all begin with our heads in the clouds

A psychiatrist and mom sat next to each other on a plane. A conversation about children, poor sleep habits, the critical effects these have on development, and struggling families took off. At 30,000 feet in the air, a realization materialized. By the time the journey was complete, an organization had landed that would grow to become Paperclouds.

OUR GROWTH

Backed by decades of research gathered by clinical child psychiatrist Dr. Smita Naidoo and co-created by mompreneur and wellness advocate Andrea Bell, Paperclouds' work has been verified by thousands of families. The Quest for Rest: Polly & Pickles is the first illustrated book, the first product, the ground floor of our grassroots Canadian sleep literacy platform. Corporations, schools, hospitals, and countless communities are desperately looking for ways to come together to solve the growing sleep deprivation and mental well-being crisis. Paperclouds exists to facilitate this critical conversation.
