About Giving Tuesday
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the
widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday,
#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their
holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012,
#GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving
and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog
About the Pajama Program:
Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need
nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These children live
in group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities and are
shuffled often from one place to another. Many of them have been
abandoned, abused or neglected. Most of these children have never
enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in at bedtime
with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. Some of the children are
living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of
food, clothing and shelter. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books
let the children know that someone cares – sometimes these are the only
new things they have ever received.
