It won’t be long before National Pyjama Day 2022 is upon us on Friday, 18 November and we hope you will join in. As you know, National Pyjama Day is all about children helping children and having fun!
This year, we invite you to support two projects. Half of the proceeds will go towards a charity that is chosen by you, our valued members. The remainder will be allocated to an exciting and innovative project. The project will ensure that children in Ireland continue to experience the highest quality education and care by supporting our members in building further expertise. More details to come, so watch this space!
In the meantime, and with help from the Community Foundation for Ireland, we have identified three charities whose work and values align with the vision of National Pyjama Day and whose governance levels are of the highest standards. We are delighted to once again invite you to have your say in choosing the charity that will benefit from the funds raised. Please take a few minutes to consider the options below and then cast your vote.
