I’m sorry, but last I checked, if you are young and pretty much getting ready to do anything that costs more than the price of a video game system, there’s a strong chance that you need someone as a financial backer.
Hell, I remember being well into my twenties and wanting to come home on leave when I was in the military my mother would send me a hundred dollars to help pay for the plane ticket.
The point is, young people need help with things sometimes. Hell, no little kid ever paid to start their own lemonade stand. Sort of makes me wonder how David Hogg got the money to start a pillow company.
Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg plans to launch his own pillow company with the goal of competing against embattled bedding company MyPillow. The CEO and founder of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, is a vocal supporter of Donald Trump.
The idea was posed to Hogg, 20, in a tweet from entrepreneur William LeGate on Thursday that questioned whether the duo should start a pillow company to “put MyPillow out of business.”
“Mike the ‘my pillow guy’ … This pillow fight just got very real,” Hogg tweeted on Thursday.
Though it might have initially seemed like a joke, Hogg later said that he was serious about the business venture. He tweeted a list of goals for the future company, which included supporting progressive causes and hiring formerly incarcerated Americans.
“The website will be up in a couple weeks we are very much in the early stages right now,” Hogg said. “But we really are doing this if you have cool name ideas dm me- we think we have one but we are still open.”
Hogg became a household name in 2018 after a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed. Hogg has since become an outspoken advocate for reforming gun laws and joined several of his classmates in the founding of March for Our Lives, a student-led gun control organization.
