Project Night Night: Give a Stuffed Animal or Blanket to a Child in Need
Every parent knows the soothing comfort that a security blankie or stuffed animal can offer a child at bedtime. But many children around the country don’t have that simple luxury.
Each year, 1.5 million children go to sleep at night without a home, and the nonprofit, Project Night Night, is trying to make those long nights feel a little more secure by providing care packages made up of a blanket, children’s book and stuffed animal for children in need.
“Project Night Night strives to give children something they can call their own, something that can give them that little bit of comfort, and confidence, to deal with what’s in front of them,” the organization states.
To help, the organization lets you give back in several ways.
- Donate items: you can mail-in or, if you live near a drop-off location, you can give new blankets and new (or like-new) children’s books and stuffed animals.
- Donate money: You can make a tax deductible donation online.
- Or, for $25 you can provide a fully prepared “Night Night Package” that will be distributed to one homeless child.
- To learn more about how you can contribute, visit projectnightnight.org.
