About National Pyjama Day

 

National Pyjama Day is all about wearing your favourite and comfiest Pyjamas or onesie to work or school to help raise funds and awareness for children in foster care.

The aim of of the day is to raise as much funds as possible for The Pyjama Foundation's Love of Learning Program which is offered to children in foster care.

 

The Pyjama Foundation's Love of Learning Program is a one-on-one mentoring scheme where volunteers are recruited, screened, trained and matched with a child in care.
 

Together, the mentor, called a "Pyjama Angel" and child spend time together each week (for up to an hour a week) reading, writing, and focusing on educational based games - with the goal of improving the child's learning and life trajectory.

Without support and early intervention, many children in foster care go through a cycle of disadvantage; many kids in care don't end up finishing school and can either end up homeless, unemployed, a new parent or enter the juvenile justice system.

To break this cycle of disadvantage, education is crucial - so The Pyjama Foundation's mission it to ensure as many foster kids as possible receive that one-on-one learning support that they don't often receive in a school-based setting. 

 

Without funding, The Pyjama Foundation wouldn't be able to offer this program free to children in foster care. 

National Pyjama Day is The Pyjama Foundation's biggest signature fundraiser and hundreds of organisations and schools right around Australia sign up!

When you sign up your organisation for Pyjama Day, you will receive a free host kit - this kit includes: posters, balloons, bunting, stickers and so much more! It doesn't cost a cent to register; we just ask that all organisations raise funds (no minimum amount as every cent counts!)

 

About The Pyjama Foundation

TPF logo colour transparent.png

The Pyjama Foundation  provides children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence.

 

Through the Love of Learning program, volunteers called ‘Pyjama Angels’ are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities.

 

Pyjama Angels read books aloud with their child, play educational games and help children with their homework. Most importantly, the volunteers give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start. Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally.

 

By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact.


Whether they want to grow up to be an astronaut or a doctor,
The Pyjama Foundation is there to help them reach their full potential by assisting them with their learning, and by providing consistent love and support.

With a little confidence and encouragement, who knows what they can achieve?
