EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2011
Pillows for Puppies, now in its second year, is collecting pillows at the annual Newmindspace Pillow Fight and distributing them to animal shelters for bedding, and to shelters of all kinds. So far we’ve collected and donated 1,200 pillows to charities nationwide, entirely from the generosity of pillow fighters.
We also distribute trash bags to help clean up after the fun. Our second goal, after providing pillows to the needy, is to demonstrate that the pillow fight is a responsible flash mob which respects the public space while borrowing it temporarily for a free-spirited afternoon of pillow fighting.
We will use $40 to buy 200 trash bags from Costco, $60 to buy netting to hang on the police barriers to catch flying feathers, and $150 to rent a 17-foot U-Haul for two days to take the pillows to their new homes.
