Bengaluru: SleepyCat, India’s first Mattress-in-a-box company, completed the another phase of its CSR activity through a donation drive at Baale Mane Trust, a Bengaluru-based NGO. The company donated a mattress to each child at Baale Mane, an NGO who run a home for disadvantaged and abandoned girl children.
SleepyCat, founded in August 2017, has promised to donate one mattress for every 10 mattress sold. For the first donation drive of 2019, the company identified Baale Mane through a collaboration with Global Citizen, a community initiative that helps bring together like-minded people, for the donation.
