Mike Lindell, Inventor and CEO of MyPillow, has mobilized his team at their corporate headquarters and distribution center in support of the Freedom Convoy Truckers. Mike and his team are donating thousands of MyPillows to the convoy that is currently occupying the Canadian capitol city of Ottawa.
A tractor trailer rig full of the number one selling item from the Minnesota based pillow manufacturer is set to pull out of their docks and hit the highway for the Windsor/Ottawa border today. Mike and his team have been reading stories of the drivers in the convoy sleeping in their trucks with whatever supplies they were able to bring on short notice with them for the trip, and immediately saw an opportunity to help.
Knowing that these truckers were staging vehicles and not leaving for days (or even weeks) at a time, there was an opportunity to help make that experience a little more comfortable for these patriots that are peacefully protesting for individual rights on behalf of Canadian citizens everywhere.
The MyPillow team plan to leave as quickly as possible, with the intent to arrive at the Canadian border with the shipment of pillows. With 1-2 thousand rigs parked in Ottawa and the surrounding areas, this shipment of thousands of pillows will be enough to support every driver present.
This is not the first time that MyPillow has stepped up to support those in need. Most recently, Mike and his team donated over 10,000 pillows to the victims of the Kentucky tornados. In 2017, the team rushed 100,000 pillows to Texas in support of those affected by the devastation of hurricane Harvey.
Mike Lindell was quoted at that time as saying, “For them, it’s such a blessing to be able to… get good sleep or to get help sleeping,” Lindell said. “A lot of them don’t have beds, they’re sleeping in cars, shelters, etc… It’s a little relief for the people to at least be able to have some little comfort.”
