We run our annual new pyjama drive leading up to winter. One of the reasons that we specifically ask for new summer or winter pyjamas (aged 0-17 years) is that many of these children have never had a brand new pair of their very own and knowing that someone has shopped especially for them is a huge boost to their self-esteem. We want this to be a positive experience as some foster children tend to feel like a bit like second hand kids themselves. Anything we can do to help them feel loved and valued is a huge part of what we do.
Here are some ways you can help us reach our goal of collecting 5,000 pairs a year:
By donating Pyjamas:
These could be from you personally or why not pop a box up at your work / gym / hairdresser / kindergarten / school or ask your friends to help on our behalf.
By holding a ‘Pyjama Day’:
Have you ever wished you could go to school/work in your pyjamas, well now you can and for a good cause too! Just set a date where the staff/pupils of your organisation are welcome to wear their pyjamas for the day by bringing a gold coin donation and either go out and buy the PJ’s for us or donate online. It couldn’t be easier or more fun!
By donating money:
All monetary donations will go towards purchasing pyjamas if you put PYJAMAS in the comments or reference area. You can make a credit card donation to Foster Hope Charitable Trust.
