"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Pajama Party Anyone?

We've almost wrapped up our work on our initial quilt run for Project Linus. We'll see how the project coordinator for our area receives them before we make any more.

Meanwhile, I was recently made aware of this project which we've taken on for March.

The project:
Gather new pajamas and bedtime stories for children in our own community.

20 minutes - research, early organization and putting out the call

Why bother?
Seems like a worthy project. We have lots of kids in our area in shelters or foster situations. Cuddling up with comfy PJs and a good book at bedtime are among life's simple pleasures.

Worth it?
We'll see how it pans out. I like the idea of this drive. Let's see what we can bring together! :)


  1. Thanks for posting about this program. I hadn't heard about it before, and I think my daughter might like to run a pajama drive for girl scouts. I'm enjoying following your year of charitable living - you've got some great ideas!

  2. Thank you! I'm glad the blog is inspiring others. Please, spread the word! :)
