While we sat comfortably in our pajamas we learned of a startling statistic: around the world, a woman dies every 90 seconds due to complications of pregnancy. We knew that was one statistic that our founder (a mother of three) and most of our customers would not be able to ignore. When we learned that 90 percent of those deaths are preventable, we decided to do our part to help.
Today, The Pajama Company is thrilled to announce it is partnering with Every Mother Counts, an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal and child health.
Now you have the opportunity to do your part while wearing your pajamas. Today is Maternal Health Monday at The Pajama Company and we are donating 10 percent of every sale to Every Mother Counts.
As The Pajama Company President and Founder writes on her blog, “Yes, we lounge in pajamas. We celebrate in pajamas. We work in pajamas. Today, we are doing something important in pajamas.” Read more about why the cause of maternal and child health is important to Ellie at Life in Pajamas.
In the rush to get the kids out the door and into the car to go school, getting dressed yourself might not be a priority. But it doesn’t matter. No one will see you, right?
At one school in the UK, parents were surprised recently to learn that was not the case. They were being watched.
We have heard about schools enforcing a pajama-free dress code for kids, but this school has taken it one step further. They don’t want parents parents wearing PJ’s, either.
According to a post on babycenter.com, the school sent the following message home to parents:
“We respectfully request that parents who drop off their children and pick them up from school follow all of the dress code expectations that students are expected to follow including the rule stating that pajamas are not to be worn.”
