Corrie was in the hospital a lot during the first 2.5 years of her life. Many times, our trips to the hospital were on short notice and we didn’t have time to pack. So, she would be given a hospital gown to wear. The gowns were uncomfortable and cold.
Some friends brought Corrie some pajamas a few times and just that simple gesture, the warmth and comfort of the pajamas, brightened up the room and gave Corrie something to give her a little “happy”.
So, after Corrie’s liver transplant and healing, we decided to give that same “happy” back to other children, teens, and adults who are in the hospital. We’ve been doing this for a few years now and Corrie’s Pajama Drive keeps growing.
We deliver the pajamas to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa during the first two weeks of February to celebrate Corrie’s “Liverversary”– both of these hospitals were instrumental in saving Corrie’s life.
We hope you’ll join us in bring some comfort and a little bit of “happy” to some people in these two hospitals. It’s a small gesture that makes all the difference in the world to someone who is sick, scared, and just wants to be well.
