You know that feeling of getting into bed at the end of a long day in your snuggly, warm pajamas and an awesome book? I looove that feeling! But there are lots of kids in the U.S. who don't ever get that snuggly, warm pajamas, good book feeling at night. These kids live in various situations including group homes, shelters, and temporary housing facilities where they are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Many have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. For these kids, owning their own books or new pajamas is a rare luxury.

Pajamagirl2We want to work together with you to help these kids. Scholastic’s got the books to donate, but we need pajamas. That’s where you come in. Let’s show these kids that STACKers care! Scholastic has already donated 200,000 books to Pajama Program. I am challenging you to donate one set or a bunch of sets of pajamas. Every STACKS member who sends in pajamas will be invited as a special guest to the biggest virtual party the STACKS has ever had!* If everyone who reads this contributes (that means YOU!), we can at least make it to 2,000 sets of pajamas!

  • WHAT: New set of pajamas, top and bottom for any age 0-17. Print this form and include it with your donation.
  • WHERE: Send pajamas to:
    Pajama Program

    171 Madison, Suite 1409

    New York, NY 10016
  • WHEN: By February 28, 2013. Hurry up! Do it now!

Pajamagirl3Thanks for your support of the Pajama Program, but don’t stop there. Send an e-card to everyone you know, encouraging them to send pjs too. Why not host a pajama party and ask all your friends to donate a pair of new pajamas to send? Or ask your principal if you can have a box to collect new pajamas from everyone in school. Depending on how cool your principal is, maybe you can even have a fun pajama day when you get to wear your pjs to school!

*Obviously you don’t have to be a STACKS member to donate, but only members will be invited to the virtual party. It’s super-easy to become a member. Join now.
