PJ Day

Stay in your PJ’s and raise funds to help people with asthma

PJ Day was first initiated in 2007 by a young girl called Montanna who had serious asthma and was in and out of hospital frequently. As a result, she spent a lot of her childhood in her pyjamas. This gave her the idea to hold a PJ fundraiser and donate the money to the Asthma Foundation.  Since then, we have adopted this as our annual community fundraiser.

What is PJ Day? 

Have an extra fun day by getting your school, child care centre, community group or workplace involved.   It can be as easy as wearing your slippers at work and making a gold coin donation, holding a PJ breakfast, sponsoring your boss or teacher to wear their PJ’s for the day or getting your entire class to wear their PJ’s to school.   The options are endless, so why not register today?  

When is PJ Day? 

Although PJ Day is traditionally run to coincide with World Asthma Day on Tuesday 3 May 2016, you can hold your PJ fundraiser any time that is convenient for you.   

Funds raised will go towards vital asthma research and asthma support programs.  You will be helping us to achieve our vision of ‘A community free from Asthma’.  

What happens when I register? 

Register Now and we will send you a PJ host pack, which will include some great fundraising ideas, posters to promote your PJ event and an Authority to Fundraise letter.    

You can also download the PJ Posters here:
