Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We believe that all children should go to bed in PJs that will keep them warm in the colder months. 

What better way than donating to help us provide a cozy pair of new pajamas, a toasty nightgown or even a pair of fluffy sock or slippers. 

Many disadvantaged children have never owned a pair of brand new pajamas, and often sleep in underwear or their everyday clothes. The bedtime rituals many of us use to help our own children feel special and secure – like warm clean pajamas are unknown to many disadvantaged children.

With your help we are hoping to make a difference to local disadvantaged families, together we can help children in need to feel special by making a donation so that we can reach as many local  families and provide them with NEW, clean, cozy pajamas.   

Merseyside Mentoring work closely with children aged between 5 & 12 years old. We provide one to one mentoring to children for up to a year, who are experiencing difficulties which may be having a negative impact on their confidence, social skills and ability to learn.

One to One mentoring gives children the opportunity to: 

  Talk to and listen to someone else 

 • Improve self-esteem and build confidence

• Improve interpersonal and communication skills

• Better self-awareness, self-belief, and opportunities

Please note that if we exceed the funding needed for pajamas, we will put the donations towards engaging the children in fun activities to help build their confidence, self- esteem and offer them the opportunity to access new experiences. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
