The PJ Project has one simple aim, to help keep kids warm in winter!
Over 143,700 kids are living in poverty. This means 1 in 8 children go without the basics, including food, shelter and warmth.

Being cold can have a detrimental effect on health, school attendance and overall wellbeing. As the cost of living continues to climb, The PJ Project is one small way we can collectively make a difference for thousands of tamariki.

So far we've delivered 20,749 pairs of pyjamas to 170 different services around the country, but we need your help to take kids off the waitlist.

From 1st May - 31st July you can donate, collect, drop and get involved to help us deliver winter pyjamas, warm blankets and cost-effective heating options so families in need don't have to choose heating over eating this winter.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

DONATE

Donate $10 and we'll turn it into a pair of brand new, warm, winter pyjamas and deliver them on your behalf.

"Nana has care of her grandchildren and was blown away by the fact the pjs were brand new, how soft they were and how excited her mokopuna were to receive them. She shared with me that they rushed to get into the shower so that they could put their new pjs on. They were also able to sleep in their own beds rather than bed share because they were warm enough with the extra layer the pjs provided. Your generosity is having an immediate impact on our whānau".

"They are going to tamariki who are currently living in emergency accommodation in dreary motels; two brothers who recently lost all their belongings in a familial theft; children who have disabilities; tamariki who have never owned new clothes plus many more who are living in absolute poverty where their caregiver has to juggle their paltry benefit day-to-day".
