Annual Pyjama Drive | Backpacks 4 SA Kids | 2024

Make a difference to Australian kids in emergency care this winter by donating new, warm and comfy pyjamas.

Imagine being a child and suddenly finding yourself in an unfamiliar place, away from everything you know and love. For many children entering emergency care, this scenario is a harsh reality. Amid such upheaval, something as simple as a pair of pyjamas can provide immense comfort and ease the anxiety during what is an extremely stressful time.

Children entering emergency care often arrive with little to nothing of their own. They’ve been uprooted from their homes, sometimes in the middle of the night, due to circumstances beyond their control. The trauma of these sudden changes is compounded by the unfamiliar environment and the lack of personal belongings. In these critical moments, basic necessities like clothing are not always immediately available.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids annual Pyjama Drive aims to ensure that every child in emergency care has a pair of pyjamas to call their own. Your contribution can make a significant difference and by donating pyjamas, you are offering more than just clothing; you are giving a child a piece of comfort and a reminder that they are cared about, loved and are not alone.

How to Help:

  1. Purchase new pyjamas
  2. Host an event seeking PJ donations at your workplace, school, community club etc
  3. Deliver your PJs to the warehouse or drop them off at one of the collection points around SA
  4. Donate funds so that a bulk order can be placed for desperately needed sizes
  5. Spread the word
