BENEFITING: Pajama Program, Inc.
Pajama Program provides New Pajamas and New Books to children in need nationwide, many of whom are awaiting adoption, and have been abused and neglected. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. There are more than 16 million children in the United States living in poverty, many of whom have never owned a new book or a pair of pajamas. These two simple gifts let these children know that someone cares - sometimes these are the only new things they have ever received.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am working with Pajama Program on our “Open Your Hearts,” campaign. During the freezing cold months of January and February, children in need nationwide go to bed in freezing temperatures with nothing to keep them warm and comforted at night. Please join me and “Open Your Heart,” to a child in need.
Since 2004 the NJ Chapter has distributed over 157,000 pairs of new pajamas and new books to children in all 21 counties throughout the state. Our goal is to be able to reach 35,000 children.
All of the money that we receive will benefit children in NJ. They will receive the gift of a new pair of pajamas, a new book and the knowledge that someone cares about them.
