Everywhere Agency engaged me to do this post. I’m participating because I believe every child should have access to pajamas.
In the midst of the holiday busyness and preparations for our own families, it’s easy to forget that millions of children in our country don’t have the luxuries our families take for granted.
While I tuck my children into bed each night with kisses and prayers, other children in our country don’t have a warm bed to sleep in. Millions of children in need have never been tucked into a cozy bed by a parent. They’ve never experienced wearing a pair of new pajamas or being read a bedtime story. Children often arrive at temporary shelters with nothing of their own, and sometimes without knowing anyone.
That’s why Carter’s is partnering with the Pajama Program to provide literacy and comfort to children in temporary living situations. During Giving Tuesday on November 29th Carter’s will match pajama donations up to $100,000!
How can you help? You can purchase and donate pajamas or make a monetary donation- both in-store or online. Carter’s will accept pajama donations in-store for the rest of the year. Or, give a monetary donation on-line which will go toward both providing more pajamas and books to your community and helping to build reading centers around the country.
