From My Heart

I want to share with you all something that is dear to my heart - actually someone that is dear to my heart. That person is Jayton.


 He is super cute and one of the most lovable people anyone could ever meet. Molly idolises him. Jayton is my 6 year old great nephew and has Cystic Fibrosis.



In the last six years Jayton has spent a lot of time in hospital and that is how he and his Mum Lisa (my amazing niece) came up with the idea of Jayton's Jammies. Jayton even spent his 5th birthday in hospital.

(That's Molly on the right!)

Jayton's Jammies is based in Perth and is all about making kids feel a little more comfortable and bring a little happiness to their stay.

Here is a little from Lisa about Jayton's Jammies:

As my 6 year old son is a "frequent flyer" at PMH, I have a permanent bag that is always packed with his pillowcase, comforter and bright, happy, comfy PYJAMAS!

It breaks my heart when kids are rushed in, with sleep deprived & stressed out parents and they are "issued" with hospital PYJAMAS! And as we all know... sick kids just want to be comfy!!!


There are no regulations on having personal hospital clothes, there just isn't "funding" to supply all kids with HAPPY PYJAMAS... so I am starting an ongoing public appeal to brighten up the wards!!! 

Jayton's Jammies collected over 141 items in April! Which is fantastic but more and more are needed all the time.

So if you are at the shops please pick up a pair of pyjamas, check out the clearance racks, donate those unwanted or wrong sized pyjamas you were given for your kids.

Lisa and Jayton would like: 

Girls & Boys... 2 piece... Summer & Winter... Button Front preferred. 
(Brand New only please)

Also collecting pillowcases, mummy pjs and socks with lots of bright colours/ patterns!
(Brand New only please)

Just recently Lisa received an email from PMH that the teenage sized pyjamas were being distributed excessively! So don't forget if you are wanting to donate perhaps throw in some teenage sized pyjamas too. 
 



For for information on how and where to donate go to Jayton's Jammies facebook page here where you'll find all the details. I know times are tough in some families so even if you yourself can't donate please like their page and share with your friends.

 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart

  2. Will keep my eye out when I next get a chance to go shopping. Great idea for what can be a very stressful time. In January my hubby was sick and we had to leave straight from the hospital to RPH 2 1/2 hours away. Lucky for him I packed him a bag but forgot about myself. Must be lots of Mum's out there who do the same.

  3. What a great cause - I will keep my eye out for PJs next time at the shops. I will try and post about this myself soon too to spread the word. Can the PJs be handmade so long as they are new (am just thinking for crafty bloggers out there...?)

  4. Hi Amanda. The PJs can be handmade as long as material is brand new and never washed to comply with infection control policies. Thanks so much for your interest :)
