‘My Pillow’ founder Mike Lindell gives 1,000 pillows (video)
(Watch video) – My Pillow founder Mike Lindell (pictured at top, left) stopped by The Salvation Army Harbor Light Shelter in Minneapolis this morning to donate 1,000 of his famous pillows (view photos).
“Sleep is so important to your health,” Lindell said. “With where I come from, and where I am now, I am blessed to be able to help these people.”
He “comes from” nearly two decades of drug addiction. His nightmare ended Jan. 16, 2009, when he asked God to take away his desire to do drugs.
“The next morning, the desire was gone,” said Lindell, who has been sober ever since.
The idea for the My Pillow donation began with U.S Marine Corps veteran Donald Kane (pictured at top with Lindell), who lives in The Salvation Army’s 10-unit veteran housing facility in South Minneapolis. Lately, Kane has been soliciting businesses to donate products and services to support veterans and others served by The Salvation Army.
“It’s inspirational knowing there’s somebody out there who cares,” Kane said of Lindell. “Somebody who wants to give you a hand and help you up.”
Lindell made the pillow donation through his company’s Lindell Foundation, which is funded by My Pillow proceeds. The foundation supports cancer victims, veterans, active duty military members, and other people in need.
The Salvation Army is grateful to Lindell for his generosity.
