Monday Mission: Prepare Pajama Program Package

I've been wanting to do this project for a while and when I came across $2 pajamas at Walmart, I snagged a bunch for this purpose! I made sure to get a pair in Busy Bee's size & Baby Bee's size so that I can think of children just like them receiving them.

Bedtime is one of my favorite parts of the day - picking out Busy Bee's pjs, reading bedtime stories, saying prayers and cuddling, talking about the day's events and planning tomorrow's. It's bliss!

The Pajama Program began when Genevieve Piturro visited a children's center in Harlem and witnessed bedtime where the kids went to bed in the clothes that they were wearing all day with no bedtime story or even a hug goodnight. Shortly therafter she returned with a dozen pairs of pjs and "The Pajama Program" was born.

In the 9 years since it's inception, the Pajama Program has given away 571, 617 pajamas and 274,426 books!

Busy Bee and I got the idea to donate after seeing an advertisement about the great Sprout Tuck In. Want to join us? Click here for a pdf for mailing information.


  1. What a sweet idea, to keep a pair of PJs to remind yourself of the babies you are helping to keep warm while they dream!

    I found you through SITS, and I am following you now.

  2. What a wonderful idea! I am going to do this...thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh, even though my bees are a bit bigger now, this is a lovely project!
