After seeing an episode of Oprah about the growing poverty in American cities, and one persons’ efforts to ensure that kids have warm sleepwear, Louise Downs contacted the Salvation Army of Nova Scotia and discovered the same problem exists here at home. Ms. Downs, owner of the House Whisperer Cleaning & Organizing company told this story to her staff and clients who encouraged her to do something about it. She founded the Pajamarama campaign to raise awareness of poverty inNova Scotiaand with the specific goal of raising 1,000 pairs of pajamas by Christmas 2008.

The Problem

Thousands of children in Nova Scotia do not have warm pajamas to sleep in. This Christmas help us to bring smiles to faces – and warmth to their bodies. 

The Cause

Pajamarama is an organization working with the Salvation Army and other charities to gather warm pajamas this winter for Nova Scotia’s children who have none

How Can I Help?

By donating cash or pjs and by telling friends, family and co workers.  Just five dollars buys one pair of new, warm pajamas!  Donate cash or, bring your new pajamas (sizes 2-6X are needed the most). Please inquire about different drop off locations available in the fall leading up to Christmas.


Tell your friends… The more people who know about the program the more pajamas we can give.
