As a proponent of adoption via the state foster care system, and an adoptive parent myself, I am excited to read about The Northern California Chapter of the Pajama Program, lead by chapter co-presidents, paralegal April Fuchs-Smith and attorney Pallie Zambrano. The program provides new pajamas and books to children awaiting adoption, and its “Open Your Heart” campaign is one of five nationwide finalists for the CLASSY Award for Most Creative Fundraiser.
The annual “Open Your Heart Campaign” resulted in the donation of 2,500 pairs of pajamas. The winner of the CLASSY award gets $10,000 in cash and in-kind services. Voters must be over 18 years of age and can vote once from October 9 – 22.
If you’d like to vote for the Pajama Program under “Most Creative Fundraiser,” here’s the link: http://www.stayclassy.org/classy-awards?city_id=3 (Make sure you click on the North Cal Pajama Program button, and then the “Submit My Ballot” button before exiting the website. You will be asked for some information to confirm you’re not a bot.)
For more information about the Pajama Program, go to http://www.pajamaprogram.org/. Having a PJ Drive would be a wonderful community service project for a paralegal association.
