Children in 21 creches and preschools in Donegal will be doing their lessons in onesies and robes for a fun fundraising event.
National Pyjama Day 2017 takes place in creches and preschools nationwide on Friday 3rd March.
Teresa Heeney from Ballybofey, the CEO of Early Childhood Ireland, has thanked the 50,000 children already signed up for National Pyjama Day, including 21 creches and preschools in Donegal.
Children are sponsored to wear their pyjamas into creche and preschool to raise money for three children’s charities that support children under 6 years of age with additional needs.
This annual fundraiser organised by Early Childhood Ireland is all about children helping children and having fun.
Grants of between €40,000 and €100,000, based on funds raised, will be awarded to the three chosen charities and Early Childhood Ireland will be supported by the Community Foundation for Ireland to assess and administer the grants.
Now in its 14th year, National Pyjama Day has already raised over €2.5 million for children’s charities in Ireland, through a fundraising initiative that is all about children helping children and having fun by wearing their PJs into preschool.
