Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Thousands of the children we serve live in group homes and shelters and are shuffled often between temporary living facilities. Many of them have been abused or abandoned, and have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime and read to them. Since 2001 we have provided more than two million pajamas and books to children in need nationwide. Our Pajama Program segments on NBC’s The TODAY Show which aired in December, 2008 and The Oprah Winfrey Show, which aired August, 2008 and twice in 2007, helped us grow to 63 chapters in 40 States nationwide.
