My workplace, OMD, is a major supporter of the Pyjama Foundation and the incredible work they do with children in Foster care.
To help raise funds, I’m taking part in the inaugural OMD Pyjamathon – an epic ‘amazing race style’ obstacle course around the city.
Help me raise $100 so I don’t have to run around the city in PJs!
The Pyjama Foundation does incredible work through their volunteer Angel program where each Angel spends time with one child reading books aloud, playing educational games and help children with their homework. Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. The Angels are there to help them reach their full potential by assisting them with their learning, and by providing consistent love and support. By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact.
Each Pyjama Angel costs $1000 to train and screen.
OMD hope to train as many Angels as possible. We want to give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start.
