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.

In 2023 we provided over 14,500 pairs of PJs to kids around the country and this year, with the help of The Warehouse Group, we're going one step further to help heat up Kiwi homes.

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.



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

Donate $50 and we'll deliver PJs, a blanket and hot water bottle too.

DROP off

Drop off brand NEW winter pyjamas to The Warehouse collection bins around the country, between 1st May - 30th June and we’ll get them to local kids who need them most.

The Warehouse are selling their quality, flannel, winter pyjamas at $10 per pair this year. We'd love you to support our collective mission to keep Kiwi kids warm at an affordable price by purchasing PJs for your kids and donating a pair at the same time! 

Drop at your local The Warehouse ->


You can collect NEW winter pyjamas with your school, work, club or team anytime between 1st May - 31st July.

There are lots of ways to get involved, like hosting a pyjama day or community event, so grab everything you need to get started below.

"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".
