Teaching about Charity
Its time to do something GOOD... REALLY GOOD... and Pajama Projects needs your help to pull it off!
Pajama Projects is hosting a PAJAMA DRIVE to give a pair of new pajamas and a new book to children in need. Pajama Program, a 501-C3 charitable organization, has located 2 shelters for Pajama Projects to send aid to. These shelters take in children in need from desperate situations. Many of those children have nothing of their own, and have seen much harder times than anyone deserves. Wouldn't it be great for those children to have something that is theirs to bring them comfort at bedtime?
We are collecting new (they don't have to be expensive) pajamas (newborn to teen sizes) and a new book to go with each pair! Together, you and your child can pick out a pair of new pajamas and a book to send to Pajama Projects. I will deliver them to the shelters Pajama Program has chosen. Teaching our kids to look out for those in need is one of the GREATEST lessons we can ever teach! You can go to sleep with a full heart knowing you gave a child, who rarely gets one, a peaceful bedtime. What a blessing this charity is in the lives of those children.
