ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Lighthouse Shelter in Annapolis, has been taking care of our most vulnerable for over 30 years. The shelter raises money to put people to work at its Bistro. Money is raised on the feet of runners and the swings from golfers. But tonight, consider yourself challenged. Can you go to bed without using your pillow?

Tonight, many will lay their heads down on a crack in the sidewalk. So as you fluff your pillow don’t shut your eyes to those in need. Catherine Castro is the brains behind this #NO PILLOW challenge, “I want an event that can reach everyone from five to 90 years old”. She is asking for you to go one night without a pillow. Take a picture. Spread it on social media. Invite your friends and raise money so that the Lighthouse can keep show many the light they need in their lives.

  1. Sleep without a pillow
  2. Post your selfie with #NoPillow on Facebook and Insta @FriendsOfTheLighthouse
