Say Yay to Pajama Day!

Pajama Day sheep jumping We’re having a pajama party … and your school is invited! It doesn’t matter if you are in-person or virtual, we are ready to celebrate!

Pajama Day is a chance for your school to spend the day in your most comfortable jammies, all while supporting kids who rely on Children’s Hospital for care, cures and hope.

We know that giving back and creating a sense of community is important to your school. Pajama Day is a fun and easy way to support the kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Here at CHOP, we'll be celebrating on Dec. 4, 2020, but you can pick your own day that works best with your school’s schedule!
