Clark University students in Barbara Bigelow’s MGMT 100 course are looking to promote awareness for the charity, A Bed For Every Child, and will install a fully made twin bed — complete with a speak bubble sign that says, “What would you do without me? #ABed4EveryChild” — outside in Red Square (by the Freud statue) on Thursday, March 28, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday, March 29, from 2 to 7 p.m.   The students hope to generate a social media following for the organization.

Stop by and take a photo on/near the bed and then share it on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or other social media profiles, along with a link to the charity to share its mission.

“In the town of Lynn, Mass., alone, they need 1,500 beds per year at $250 each. That’s $375,000 that they can’t raise alone, with no one knowing who they are. Worse, without good publicity bringing more social action pioneers, they will never achieve their goals of expanding and helping children all around Massachusetts,” said Rebecca Raphaelson ’14.
