An organic buckwheat pillow from L-OMA™ is a high quality, full or travel-sized organic buckwheat pillow produced in Maine. Because an organic buckwheat pillow conforms to the head, neck and spine, extra comfort is realized which optimizes the sleeping position.
L-OMA™ was established by Heidi Fogarty in 1993 after a family trip to Germany, where she first encountered buckwheat pillows. After owning and operating the company herself for over ten years, she decided to retire. She donated the entire operation to The Bridges Foundation, which now uses L-OMA Organic Buckwheat Pillows™ to further its mission of helping people with disabilities to ultimately help themselves.
Individuals with developmental disabilities work alongside Bridges Foundation staff making and shipping our L-OMA Organic Buckwheat Pillows™, as they earn a living wage while at the same time helping raise money to fund programs and services for themselves and others. They are making a therapeutic product which benefits people around the world; they are also becoming more self-reliant and financially independent. They are less dependent upon receiving government aid in the form of monthly disability payments, and they are also promoting a small business dedicated to funding services for persons with disabilities. This also helps reduce the overall tax burden as their benefits decrease! We hope that this business model is one that will be adopted by other businesses, as we seek to tap into the full worth of each individual’s potential to contribution to society as a whole.
