First I’d like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!! I hope that the New Year will bring you happiness, peace, joy, and love. PJ’s for Patients has definitely had a fabulous commencement to this New Year, and I am thrilled to share some of these updates with you!
I have two SUPER exciting news updates regarding corporate donations!!! As you may know, the pajama collections that PJ’s for Patients will host will be largely donation based, with some corporate donations supplemented by local collections. We reached out to CleanRiver, an awesome recycling solutions company, asking for a quote on some amazing recycled plastic bins that were exactly the collection bins we were hoping for! CleanRiver so generously offered to DONATE several of these bins!!! We are more than ecstatic, and would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to CleanRiver! Please check out their website: http://www.cleanriver.com.
And if that news wasn’t celebratory enough, listen to this: PJ’s for Patients has received its very first PAJAMA DONATION!!! After reaching out to Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Pediatric Cancer Center, we learned that only new, 100% cotton pajamas will be suitable for the patients. After learning this, I reached out to several 100% cotton pajama manufacturers asking for donations. Just three days after my requests went out, I received a response from Leslie from Back From Bali! This small business sells adorable clothes and accessories for children and adults, and they’ve offered to make a generous pajama donation! We’ll be receiving it within the next week!

Thanks for reading, and thanks for all the support!! I’ll keep you posted.
