Good Deed Friday: Pajamas All Around!
My favorite part of the day is when I put on my comfy pajama pants and t-shirt to curl up with a good book before going to bed. I feel like this has been part of my nightly ritual since I was little, so when I heard about Pajama Program, an organization that gives pajamas and books to kids in need, I was equally heartbroken, to hear that there were kids with no pajamas and books, and thrilled that someone was bringing these comfort items to deserving children.
Genevieve Piturro was volunteering at a Harlem Children‚Äôs Center when she discovered that the kids around her were pajama-less. She began Pajama Program in 2001 to bring pjs and books to children living in orphanages, group homes and shelters in New York. Since then, Pajama Program has grown to 70 chapters in 39 states and 27 countries. They've given away over 400,000 pairs of pajamas and 184,000 books in eight years!
Winter is known as danger season for kids without warm clothes so Pajama Program is looking for donations of pajamas, books or money to help out. Visit Pajama Program to donate, find a chapter in your area or get more information.
