The Pyjama Foundation

Pyjama FoundationAt SleepoversRus we value the important things in life. Like family, friends and good health.

We’re proud to support The Pyjama Foundation. We appreciate that not every child is able to enjoy a beautiful slumber party, however, we hope that our monthly donation goes a little way to making the lives of children in foster care that little bit better. Every month we contribute to the purchase of books, educational toys and the training of ‘pyjama angels’.

The Pyjama Foundation was founded in 2004 to give children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills, and confidence.

Alarmed at the statistics highlighting poor literacy and numeracy levels of children in care, and how this contributes to a lifetime of disadvantage, founder Bronwyn Sheehan made a decision – a decision to offer hope and a more positive outlook for these children.

Through a simple program known as the Love of Learning Program, volunteers called Pyjama Angels are matched with a child in care and spend just one hour a week focusing on learning-based activities. Pyjama Angels read books aloud, play educational games, and help children with their homework. In that time, they demonstrate that this child is valued and loved.

If you are able, we encourage you to support them too.

Be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages as we will be hosting a special slumber party fundraiser for The Pyjama Foundation.
