Why do foster children need help? Consider these statistics:
There are over 53,000 children in care in Australia.
They are the lowest performing group educationally in all of Australia with 75% not going on to complete their VCE.
50% of those who leave care at the age of 18 will either be homeless, in prison or a new parent within the first 12 months of being out on their own.
50% of all homeless come from a care background.

That's why, right around Australia on Friday 21st July (or any day you choose in July or August) you need to encourage everyone in your school or organisation to wear their favourite pair of pyjama's to school or work and make a donation to help pave the pathway of education for kids in care.

With the funds from last year's National Pyjama Day, the Pyjama Foundation were able to support more than 1400 foster children, helping them to enjoy learning so that they can reach their full potential. Help make this National Pyjama Day be even bigger and raise money to help the foundation offer learning skills, fund educational resources and help provide stable, positive relationships for children through their love of learning program.

Participate in the comfiest day of the year by registering online and this July put on your favourite PJ's, make a donation, and get your friends/colleagues involved!
