About this program
More than 10 years ago, Genevieve Piturro walked into a Harlem children’s center. She brought with her twelve pairs of new pajamas. When one of the little girls asked her, “What are these?” Genevieve decided to begin Pajama Program.
Today, Pajama Program is a national 501(c) (3) organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need, many waiting and hoping to be adopted. The organization recently launched the nationwide One Million Good Nights initiative to collect one million new pajamas and books for children in need by the end 2015. Snuggling up in cozy new pajamas with their very own new book gives these children a secure and nurturing ‘Good Night’ at bedtime.
At Carter’s, we believe all children deserve to feel warm and loved at bedtime. Because we make and sell more children’s pajamas than any other children’s apparel manufacturer, it just makes sense that providing children in need with pajamas is our signature cause.
For the past four years, Carter’s has been proud to partner with Pajama Program to help children in need. Last year during our donation drive Carter’s and our customers donated 100,000 pairs of comfortable pajamas. Our customers also donated $375,000 to the program online and in our retail stores in 2012. Together, we’re helping to give these children a better bedtime as they snuggle up in their new, warm pajamas and read their very own books until they’re ready to drift off into sweet dreams.
Here are just some of the ways the support of the Carter’s Community is making an impact.
