Leesa Blanket Review
Anyone who follows me knows that my Leesa Blanket is never far from me.
Seriously, in the winter I am attached to it just like Linus is to his (Charlie Brown). But that doesn’t explain what I did today.
I knew that Aly Raisman was a brand ambassador at Leesa and I knew that she had a special limited edition blanket for sale on their website. What I didn’t know was why. So, I started surfing the Leesa website until I found that ah ha moment. On their page they have a Aly X Leesa logo, and then “For every-limited edition blanket sold, a percentage of profits will be donated to Heading Home.” You can read more about Aly’s involvement with Heading Home.
At that point two things crossed my mind. First, there has to be more to the Aly Raisman story than just that of the Olympic hero with 6 medals. Second, if she found a cause worthy of her time and attention the least I could do was help out by buying one myself. The added benefit is that if one of my family members runs off with my favorite blanket, now I’ll have a backup.
While buying Aly’s special blanket, I also noticed something cool. In the checkout cart Leesa offers Military, First Responder, Teacher and Student Discounts of 12.5%. Seriously, the more time I spend examining the way that Leesa does business the more I love them.
I reached out to Leesa to let them know that I bought the Aly blanket and that I plan on shooting a review video of it. I asked them if I could do an interview with Aly to discuss her inspiration behind the design and her involvement with Heading Home, which you can read below.

Leesa Blanket Video Review
You can see that the blanket has the same look and feel as the rest of Leesa’s products. What you may not be able to tell is that these blankets are heavy. I’m not sure that they fit into the weighted blanket category, but they function the same. They keep you warm and snugly for sure.
Leesa Company Policies
Leesa is a certified B corporation, meaning that part of their mission is to give back to the community. Leesa donates 1 mattress for every 10 that they sell, so naturally they like to partner with other like-minded folks. US Gold medalist Aly Raisman has a special partnership with Heading Home so she teamed up with Leesa for the Aly Raisman Blanket by Leesa.

Ali Raisman Interview
Huge thanks to Aly for doing our sleep interview. Here are the highlights from interview:
What was it about Heading Home that was so special to you?
I really enjoy spending time at Heading Home, the women there are so kind. It was so special to see the kid’s faces light up as they opened up their new mattresses and put them on their beds.
My dog tends to sneak in at night and he takes over half of my bed, do you share your bed with any pets?
I love spending time with my dogs. I definitely let them sleep with me. I have two little dogs so they don’t take up half of the bed! Once my dogs are ready to go to sleep, they like their space. Gibson usually sleeps at the foot of the bed.
Are you a side/ Back or Stomach sleeper?
Just depends. I usually start on my back and wake up on my stomach.
Travel back in time: You’re on an airplane and one of your Olympics teammates is cold, you obviously have your blanket. Who do you share it with?
I am always freezing! I love having blankets on an airplane so I would remind them to bring their own so I don’t have to share!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Get some rest and make sure to take some “me” time. We all deserve it.

I purchased the Aly blanket.
Leesa sent us the Leesa Blanket for testing purposes. All of the opinions expressed in this review are mine.
Maybe, I haven’t seen it in West Elm, but the one near you may have it.
