My daughter and  I recently hosted our 5th annual ornament exchange.  Two years ago we asked the moms and daughters to bring a pair of pajamas to benefit the Pajama Program .  The Pajama Program provides pajamas for kids who “who live in various situations including group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities and are shuffled often from one place to another.”    The idea is simple:  every child deserves to have a pair of pajamas.


The response was amazing and many girls brought more than one pair. This year we collected over 20 pairs of pajamas.  Most states have a local representative who directs collections to a local agency that has an immediate need for pajamas.

We collect pajamas for  boys and girls from infant to 12 years.  A pair of pajamas can cost as little as $6.00.

Here’s to a fun night with moms and daughters. The girls just finished their first semester of college. It was a great way to reconnect, share stories and collect pajamas for the Pajama Program
