THE STORY:

We would love it if you donated the money you were planning on spending on a gift for us to this amazing charity Pajama Program. Reading brought us together and we thought how fitting it would be if we made reading the center of our wedding starting with giving back.

This is a charity that works with kids who are living lives we luckily can't even comprehend. They give to kids here in the United States a book to read at night and a pair of pajamas, something each of us takes for granted.

It costs $10 to supply each child with a book and set of PJ's. We've made it a goal that for every guest invited we'll supply one child with this simple gift. Isn't it crazy that $10, the cost of an appetizer, could change an entire child's life.

Bedtime for these kids has a whole different connotation then it does for us. They have no one to tuck them in. They've never felt what it's like to go to sleep feeling completely safe. But now imagine them laying down at night in an actual pair of warm pajamas. Putting them on and knowing that someone out there cares about them, that's a thought that brings hope, that's a thought that could, just maybe, be the turning point in their life.
