project night night

1 in 50 American children will face homelessness in his or her lifetime.

That sucks. But there is something we can do to help homeless kids feel a little bit better. Check out Project Night Night. This is such sweet idea, pointed out to me by a college friend of mine (thanks, Stacy!) Project Night Night is a 501(c)(3) organization that helps homeless children have sweeter dreams.

Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year, free of charge, to homeless children who need childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal -- all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children they serve. Every child who receives a Night Night Packages gets to leave the shelter owning a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket to cuddle, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend. Project Night Night's mission is to deliver a Night Night Package to every homeless child in the country who needs one.

You can help Project Night Night with a tax-deductible donation. You can donate any amount to help them run their wonderful program. You can also sponsor a Night Night Package with a $20 donation that will underwrite the cost of one Night Night Package to be delivered to a homeless child. This holiday season, you can also make a tribute donation on behalf of someone on your gift list and Project Night Night will send them a card of recognition.

You can also help Project Night Night without spending any money. Yay! Volunteer your time making and delivering Night Night Packages to local shelters or donate items for Night Night Packages (they are quite specific, so please be sure to read carefully the guidelines for donating items). Here's wishing you all a good night!
