And as you can see, it was no small task.

The attempt, which was successful on the first try, was aided by a dominoes expert and certified by a Guinness World Record adjudicator. It beat the 2012 record by 50 mattresses.

The Atlanta-based company says it will be donating all 1,200 mattresses to Washington-area organizations focused on ending poverty and providing shelter to homeless families.
