December 28, 2009

According to a recent Baltimore Sun article, when a Maryland high school student asked his friend serving in Afghanistan if there was anything he needed, his response was simple: a pillow. With that, North Harford High School senior Pat Garrett launched Operation Sleep Well, a campaign to send pillows to troops serving overseas. Garrett launched the campaign with the help of his friend's mother, Mary Dundon, and so far they have shipped more than 1,000 inflatable pillows, the article notes. "These guys are having a hard time over there," Garrett told the Sun. "Anything we can do to make it a little easier will be great."
