(MANILA, PHILIPPINES) In a remarkable display of unity and philanthropy, Uratex, the homegrown foam and mattress brand, recently achieved the Guinness World Records' largest human mattress dominoes award. This extraordinary event, held on October 22, 2023 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, witnessed a continuous domino effect of mattresses for an impressive 14 minutes and 25 seconds, surpassing the previous record held by Brazil.
GWR judges and stewards graced the event, overseeing the meticulous execution that led Uratex to claim the prestigious award. A total of 2,355 mattresses were gracefully toppled, showcasing not only precision and coordination but also the commitment to breaking barriers.
Beyond the thrill of setting a world record, Uratex exemplified a spirit of generosity by donating all 2,355 mattresses to 55 charitable institutions. Among the recipients were shelters and homes for various demographics, including the elderly, women, children, adults with special needs, and community hospitals. Notably, CORA Philippines and its partner communities, such as Isla Verde / Batang VIP, St. Paul College of Parañaque, Brgy. Payatas, Purok 80 - Tagaytay, Silverio Elementary School, SAMALA, and the CORA Circular Center Women Champions, were among those benefiting from record-breaking initiative.
For underprivileged families, quality mattresses represent more than just a comfortable place to rest. They symbolize dignity, health, and a better quality of life. Adequate sleep is essential for physical and mental well-being, making the donation from Uratex a significant contribution to improving the lives of those in need.
Setting a world record is not merely about achieving a remarkable feat; it's also an opportunity to shine a spotlight on communities that require support. By breaking the previous record and donating mattresses to charitable institutions, Uratex brings attention to the needs of Filipino communities, emphasizing the importance of collective action in creating positive change.
