Another New Charity - The Pajama Program

Follow us on Twitter! @agentspayforwrd

Some of my earliest memories involve running down the hallways, and then sliding on the hardwood floors with my pajamas with the feet on them: it was fun and I'm smiling as I write this. A friend of mine, Lori Wadhwa, told me about a charity I had never heard about: The Pajama Program. It's a great program with a mission that just seems too make too much sense. After all, how can we allow children to not have the basics of pajamas when they go to bed! Here in America we can afford to go to Starbucks, spend money on video games, and bail out banks, but we can't afford to put pajamas on kids? Below is a brief description of the Pajama Program, but go to: http://www.pajamaprogram.org/media.html to learn more about this worthy program.

The Pajama Program started with personal contributions from Genevieve Piturro, her friend Alice Quirk, and their friends and relatives. Across America Pajama Program works with various Agencies to provide new pajamas and books to children in need, and children waiting to be placed in permanent homes.

The Pajama Program is a not for profit organization that provides new, warm pajamas and books to children in the United States, and around the world. These are youngsters who may not know the comforts of a mother or father to tuck them into a cozy bed, and read them a bedtime story.

When you join AgentsPayingForward.com or ACNPayingForward.com, please consider "paying it forward" for the Pajama Program - let these kids have pajamas so maybe they can have memories of sliding on their own hard wood floors.
