Here’s a cozy concept that makes a real difference for kids in need. Organize a collection of pajamas to be donated to children struggling with poverty, or living in homeless shelters or foster care. Ask neighbors, friends and family for donations. Or spread the word on social media. Get more information at The Pajama Program.
Talk to your child:
•    Do you think having a nice pair of pajamas and books to read at bedtime are important? Why or why not?
•    How do you think the children who receive the pajamas we donate will feel?
