Enter the raffle, by clicking on the link below to win. Its just £2 a ticket
(open to UK residents only)…
To see all the brilliant work they do, head over to www.pyjamafairies.org/
Pyjama Fairies is the only UK charity to make pyjamas and surgical gowns specially designed for babies and children up to age 16 having surgery or any other associated medical test.
Each garment is made in colourful, age-appropriate fabric and is designed to minimise discomfort when medical intervention is necessary. Your child can remain fully dressed, safe and warm whilst being examined and throughout their stay in hospital.
While other great organisations focus on research and finding a cure, we work to improve the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo surgeries and treatment.
Pyjama Fairies mission is to make hospital stays easier for children and their families”
Thanks for stopping by to read what I’ve been up to, good luck in the giveaway.
Lets see how much we can raise for the pyjama Fairies
Here is where your money will be used
“The average cost of materials for a pair of wrap pyjamas is £10.00. Donations from individuals and businesses have helped defray some of the costs but we have found we cannot continue to meet the needs of the children without additional funding. By supporting Pyjama Fairies, you can help these children and their families find comfort as they undergo short or long hospital stays and difficult treatments. Your donation, no matter how big or small, helps us fulfill our mission of helping kids feel settled in unsettling situations. Every pound counts”
£4 pays postage for garments to be sent to a child
£10 buys supplies for a set of pyjamas
£20 buys supplies for a set of pyjamas and gown
£50 buys a roll of fabric
Take care, and stay safe
