The Corona, Calif.–based nonprofit organization WorldBed has shipped 100 of its cot–sized field beds to survivors of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The donation was made possible by retailers Ergo Customized Comfort in Irvine, Calif., and Relax the Back in La Palma, Calif. Ashley Furniture HomeStore of Kearney, Neb., and Grand Island, Neb., is matching donations of WorldBed, plus giving a $38 gift card—equal to the donation cost of a bed—to every customer who donates. IntoBedWeGo, an e–tailer based in San Diego, is donating a WorldBed for each bed it sells. The charity has created a special fund for donations to the Japan relief effort.
