How to make a difference this National Pyjama Day

The Pyjama Foundation is encouraging all Aussies to spend a day in their favourite PJs this month to support little kids with big dreams.

By taking part in National Pyjama Day and making a donation to The Pyjama Foundation you’ll be helping the charitable organisation recruit, screen and train committed volunteers to make a real difference in the lives of children in care.

“We know that 35% of Year 9 students in foster care do not achieve the national minimum standard for spelling,” The Pyjama Foundation Founder and CEO Bronwyn Sheehan OAM said.

“One in three children do not meet the minimum national standard for reading and 40% do not meet minimum standards for numeracy.

“With the support of those in our community, The Pyjama Foundation can continue to support kids in care.

The Pyjama Foundation’s Love of Learning Program works by matching a community volunteer with a child in the out-of-home care system.

The aim of National Pyjama Day is to raise as much money as possible for The Pyjama Foundation’s Love of Learning Program which is offered to children in foster care – Australia’s lowest-performing educational group.

When you register your organisation for National Pyjama Day, you will receive a FREE host kit which includes posters, balloons, bunting, stickers and so much more!

National Pyjama Day is happening on Friday 22 July 22, but you can rock your best PJs and get involved anytime in July, August or September. To register, donate and find out more visit thepyjamafoundation.com.
