We will be starting a PEMU pajama closet at Phoenix Children's Hospital on the 8th floor, epilepsy monitoring unit in honor of Sonzee. It is cold during PEMU stays and children cannot be covered by blankets. Clothing cannot be removed going over the head due to the continuous monitoring, so these pajamas will be zipper or button openings for easy access.
Due to COVID restrictions, all pajamas need to be sent directly to the hospital in a bulk shipment, so I will be purchasing zipper/button/footless/fleece one-piece pajamas for boys and girls sized 3T-adult as these are the most critical need. There will also be some adaptive articles provided as well for those children who have feeding tubes. We will be starting with 25-30 articles of clothing due to storage and will expand and replenish as requested. (Any extra money raised will be marked for future pajama purchases).
This fundraiser open to continue through #GivingTuesday. Whether you donate $1, $5, $10, $100, $500, etc. Every little bit helps.
We look forward to seeing the impact these pajamas will make on the children who visit PEMU at PCH and are excited about the potential for this project to expand.
Thank you for your support.
