It’s hard to conceive of the fact that every night over one million children are homeless. According to the Pajama Program’s website, the average age of a homeless person is 9 years. Additionally, over 12 million children live in poverty. These facts are disturbing, to say the least.
We love the idea that “The Pajama Program” wants to help as many children as possible feel special and cozy this Christmas. That’s why we chose to donate a portion of the proceeds of our book sales for “The Great PJ Elf Chase” to their worthy cause.
Since their origin in 2001, they have provided over three million pairs of pajamas and books to children who are “cold and scared.” With over a million children on their waiting list, the organization’s goal since 2013 has been to collect one million pairs of pajamas and one million books for needy children from 0 to 18 years of age by December 31, 2015. I’m happy to say they are on track to do so!
