Oprah's Push for PJs

oprah_pajamas.jpgI know Oprah‘s got some work to do on the environmental front, but I still love this woman. On today’s show, she extended her love of the pay-it-forward concept to, of all things, pajamas, in honour of Genevieve Piturro, the founder of the Pajama Program. Founded in 2001, the Pajama Program provides (does it need to be said?), pajamas to foster and needy kids in the US and around the world. Believe it or not, according to Genevieve, not only do some kids not have pajamas, some of them don’t even know what they are.

Over the last 5 years Genevieve has raised 85,000 pajamas for kids without. 7 days ago Oprah challenged her studio audience to collect as many pajamas as possible with the catch being they could only purchase one pair. To raise more than one pair each they had to get creative. And they certainly did, raising a total of 32,000 pajamas. One woman alone was inspired enough to raise 10,000.

Of all the causes out there, I know pajamas fall on the fluffy end of things, but I love the pay-it-forward concept and the power Oprah has, and is using, to inspire people to create change.

Vegan Advocacy Ideas For The Arts

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
