All About My Program

Many hospitalized children aren’t able to sleep in fresh and cozy pajamas each night, because of illness or injury. Having been to the hospital multiple times because of my asthma, I know how scary it can be, especially when you don't feel well and don't have your warm and cozy pajamas. I created my Good Night Sleep Tight PJ Program because I wanted to make sure that children could feel calm and relaxed even when they are sick or not at home in their own bed.

The Good Night Sleep Tight PJ Program is something that is very important to me, because I worked really hard to create it. I didn’t just stop with an idea! I decided to make my idea real and take action! I spent a lot of time talking and brainstorming with my mom about my program. Coming up with a program name was our first step. Picking the name was super easy for me because “Good Night Sleep Tight” is something that my family says each and every night before bed. After picking a program name, I worked with my mom to create and design my own logo and tag for each pajama donated. Not only do I provide children with new pajamas, but I have been trying to expand my program by including a new book or bed time story and a cozy blanket for each child to keep. Who doesn’t like to snuggle up in pajamas with a blanket and a good book to read??

The pandemic definitely threw us a curve ball because hospitals no longer allowed donations of any kind.....including pj donations. This made me get creative and find new ways to continue my efforts. I was forced to expand my program and it was THE BEST decision I ever made. I now make donations to various homeless shelters and organizations that help fellow community members in need. I also came up with idea of doing a pj-gram, where I make baskets filled with snacks, small activities (like coloring books and crosswords) and of course, new pjs.

Doing good feels good......

and my pajama program makes all children feel AWESOME!

Our Travels......

I was super excited to use my connections and experiences as your 2020-2021 Royal International Miss Role Model Princess to develop The Good Night Sleep Tight PJ Program and get it up and running. Over the course of the last year, I have expanded the organization to 14 states through outreach and relationship building. I can't wait to see what's in store next.....

Connecticut

I have really been focusing on helping those in my home state and am proud to have donated pajamas to Connecticut residents.

I have visited the following locations:

-Yale/New Haven Children's Hospital

-UCONN Medical Center (NICU)

-Woodbridge Child Center

-Beth-El Shelter of Milford

-Woodbridge Human Services

-New Reach of New Haven

-Center for Family Justice-Bridgeport (I received a really special pin in support of Domestic Violence Awareness and am super proud to wear it.)

-Covenant to Care (Malta House)-Norwalk

New York

I was so lucky to visit Long Island with my Royal International Miss sister queens (Rhea and Simran) to spread some love and provide donations to a variety of places. We visited the Lakeview House, Smiling Hearts Housing Inc., the Devon House, Randall House and Mercy Medical Center, just to name a few. It was so exciting to meet some of the guests and provide so many children with new pjs to keep them warm and cozy. One of the little girls I met was so excited to have Dora The Explorer pjs and it made my heart so happy.

Massachusetts

While on vacation in Cape Cod, I thought it would be so fun to incorporate my service project into my vacation. I was able to visit the Independence House in Hyannis, Massachusetts and meet their Executive Director so she could share some new pjs with her clients.

Rhode Island

I visited Lucy's Hearth on my way to Newport, Rhode Island. I am hoping that my pjs will make a bunch of children happy in the Middletown and Newport, RI areas.

Las Vegas, Nevada

I traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada with my 13 Royal International Miss sister queens from across the country. I was so excited to travel approximately 5,200 miles to share my pj program with those youth and teens in the Southern Nevada area. Being able to visit The Help of Southern Nevada Shelter and meet with one of their directors was a great experience and I am so grateful to expand my program to the west coast.

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

In November of 2020, I traveled to Oklahoma City and Chickasha for the Royal International Miss Oklahoma state pageant. In conjunction with my travels, I wanted to make a pj donation. After my mom contacted the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, I was fortunate enough to make a donation to help children staying there due to medical treatment.

Arizona

My AMAZING sister queen, Royal International Miss Arizona Pre-Teen, Ashley Nevison, recently made a pajama donation on behalf of my program in the great state of Arizona. Ashley donated a number of pjs to UMOM-New Day Center. I am so lucky to have a sash sister like her! Thank you, Ashley...xoxxo

Orlando, Florida

In February I traveled with my Royal International Miss sister queens to Florida for our spring Royalty Trip. I was super excited to pack an entire suitcase of new pajamas so that I could donate them to children in Florida.

Houston/Sugarland, Texas

In March of 2021 I traveled to the Houston area and wanted to incorporate a donation while traveling. Prior to my trip, my mom reached out to the Parks Youth Ranch in Sugarland to coordinate a donation for children in need. I am so happy that I got to expand my program.

Family Supportive Housing- San Jose, California

I was so excited to reach out to the staff in San Jose and share my pjs with children on the west coast. Their staff was so excited to receive my package!

My Friend's Place-Dover, New Hampshire

So happy to send a full pj package to children in Dover, New Hampshire......because all children deserve to feel cozy and warm.

The Maine's Children Shelter for Little Wanderers-Waterville, Maine

Sending those pjs WAY up north to some little kiddos that might enjoy the coziness.

FBCS Shelter-Cartersville, Georgia

The Peach State received a big ole' pajama package from The Good Night Sleep Tight Program Inc.
