About this project
5 years ago a high-school graduate walked out of a movie theater with the inspiration to change the world one bed at a time. The movie “The Blindside” was at the source and it changed Lauren’s life forever. Lauren Glass is the founder and CEO of THROW. The scene that touched her heart the most is when the Tuohy family adopts Michael Oher. They give him a room in their beautiful home full of furniture, a TV, and a computer. These are all things that most of us take for granted and never had to live without. Michael Oher steps into his room and says “I’ve never had one of these before.” Mrs. Tuohy asks, “A room?” and Michael replies, “No. A bed.” Lauren could not get the scene out of her head and after a little research she found that kids not having beds was a problem that thousands faced every night. Lauren decided that she did not want to live in a world where kids lived their lives without a bed. That is how the non-profit organization Beds4Kids was began and not long after, THROW was born.
What is THROW -Together Helping Reach Our World
THROW is the pillow company that gives back. We create fun pillows, pillowcases, and bedding accessories that have a purpose. The goal is to give the world the opportunity to look at a product that we all use every night in a whole new way. From the time your head hits your THROW pillow until you wake up ready to take on the day, by backing us you are helping a child do the same.
The Good Continues
We took the good a step further with THROW and partnered with the AIDB, the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind. This is the organization that manufactures all of THROW’s products. The AIDB is different than most manufacturers because they only employ people with audio and visual disabilities.
With an eager staff and sewing skills of the Alabama Institute for the Deaf & Blind, THROW has been able to distribute enough pillows to give away 500 beds in 7 cities across America.
We need YOU and this is your opportunity to leave your mark on the world. We have to raise enough funds to be able to maintain THROW, expand our product line, and build our inventory. We want to make ourselves more accessible not only online, but also in stores all over the country. We have retailers that are ready to carry our products, but we need YOU to get it there!
