Family Reach Foundation & My Pillow Pets






Family Reach Foundation & My Pillow Pets Launch Unprecedented Fundraiser to Support Families Fighting Pediatric Cancers!

Over 50% of online sales will be donated to help cover the day-to-day expenses families face during treatment

Family Reach Foundation (www.familyreach.org) & My Pillow Pets have teamed up to raise much-needed funds for families fighting pediatric cancers and other life-threatening illnesses! My Pillow Pets, which are cuddly plush animals that unfold into super-soft pillows, will donate an amazing 55% of the sale of every Pillow Pet sold online when customers reference “Family Reach” at the checkout. Family Reach helps families deal with the everyday bills that pile up during treatment, from transportation to monthly mortgage payments.



The My Pillow Pets website makes it very easy for supports to contribute to Family Reach Foundation. When customers place their order on the site (www.mypillowpets.com), they will see a drop-down menu at the checkout labeled “Where Did You Hear About Us.” They should then select “Family Reach Foundation”, at which point 55% of the sale will be donated to the non-profit, whose goal is to provide families with emotional and financial support.


Family Reach’s network includes hospitals all across the country. Many of these hospitals are already using My Pillow Pets in the infusion and recovery rooms to offer a source of comfort to children who are receiving treatment. In addition to donating a portion of the proceeds, My Pillow Pets is encouraging its online customers to add an additional $1.00 to their shopping carts, which will go directly to Family Reach. The fundraiser is kicking off this week!
