Mike Lindell may be one of the most recognizable faces in the United States, thanks to his commercials for My Pillow. Now the Christian businessman is pitching in to help health-care workers by converting 75 percent of production to making face masks.
“My passion has always been to help people,” he said in a Christian Headlines story. “What better time?”
Lindell said My Pillow worked with the Trump administration to discover what was needed. The company specializes in cotton products and switched over after receiving a prototype for its mask.
“It took us three days to change over a 200,000-square-foot factory into all-production for these masks,” he said. “We’re making right now about 10,000 a day, and I’m hoping to get up to 50,000 a day very fast.”
My Pillow is “working with both the small kind of forgotten little, little hospitals” and larger hospitals, too. Lindell urged other companies to “see what you can do out there” in the fight against COVID-19.

The CEO’s faith story — he formerly was a drug addict –- has inspired Christians around the world. In 2019, he told the Salvation Army how Jesus saved him from an addiction to crack.
“I used to only pray when I was in trouble or for God to get me out of this situation or that,” Lindell said. “Now I am proactive in my prayers, I’m staying in the word, praying, having the Holy Spirit and being led by him. Every day, I’m reading the Bible and journaling and praying. I’m in prayer groups. During the day, any decisions I make, I pray about them at My Pillow.”
His Twitter bio reads: “Inventor and CEO of My Pillow. Evangelist. Author. Former Crack-Addict.”
