Some kiwi families are doing it really tough and there are many sick kids seen in hospital and at home who have never even owned a pair of pyjamas. Other kids are unexpectedly raced into hospital on cold winter nights with little or no notice. It’s scary for kids, and having a warm pair of clean pyjamas to change into makes a huge difference to our tamariki, rangatahi and whānau.
Every year we are overwhelmed by our community’s support for our annual Pyjama Appeal, and our thanks to those of you who have already generously donated.
With thousands of PJs donated and distributed in the last 5 years, this programme makes a significant difference to many families across our region. Gifts of warm winter pyjamas play an essential part in the care and treatment of children with all sorts of winter illnesses, and with COVID also circulating in our community, it will be even more important to ensure that sick kids have warm pyjamas this winter.
How can you help? This year due to COVID we are unable to accept donations of actual pyjamas.
But please donate online at whf.org.nz and we will buy PJs on your behalf.
