These simple items give these lonely children a secure and nurturing bedtime environment. New pajama sizes can be from infant to 16 year old children. The new book will go along with the pajamas for that age child.  Please keep the book and pajamas together either in a shopping bag or rubber band for ease of distribution. Thank you in advance for you generosity!
