The tradition of wearing new pajamas to bed on Christmas Eve is popular all around the world, not just in the U.S. In many homes, jammies are lovingly wrapped in bright Christmas paper and ripped open just before bed. Then kids slide into bed, where they dream of sugar plum fairies, Transformers and dollies—all snug in their new pajamas.
But for some children there is no such thing as new pajamas, not on Christmas eve, not ever. There are children out there who don’t get tucked into a warm and cozy bed wearing pajamas that were picked out with love, selected for their fuzziness or their warmth.
This winter you can make a difference to one of those children. The Pajama Program provides new, warm pajamas and books to needy children in the US and around the world, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. There are a lot of ways you can help—from donating a pair of pajamas to organizing a pajama drive. Then when you tuck in your own children on Christmas eve you can know that somewhere in the world another child is feeling loved too.
