August marked Pyjama Angel Awards month, where throughout the month we showed our appreciation of all our Pyjama Angels who constantly go above and beyond for our Pyjama children.
A little over a month ago, we welcomed guests far and wide to join us for a night of fun and frivolity at The Pyjama Foundation’s Brisbane Cat in the Hat Cocktail Party as we raised much needed funds for kids in out of home care. Hosted at the State Library of Queensland, the party included live entertainment, endless photo booth opportunities and a crowd favourite candy bar!
Everyday across Australia, children wake up in warm safe beds, have a healthy breakfast, head off to school in clean clothes and then come home each night to a loving family. A family who feeds them, helps them with their homework, reads story books to them and most importantly, makes them feel safe and loved.
Unfortunately, in our lucky country, there are over 51,000 children who have not grown up like this. For these children, their early years have not been warm and safe.
After the loss of her father, Narissa entered the foster care system at just eight years old.
Separated from her mother who struggled with mental illness, Narissa began her life bouncing from home to home, eventually living with six different families throughout her time in foster care.
Now 21, Narissa is sharing her experiences of growing up in foster care to help foster children, and how one special ‘Pyjama Angel’ changed her life.
Let’s be frank, we all dread the phrase “I’m booored”, especially during school holidays! With 2 weeks of the school break, the boredom can quickly seep in if your children are not ‘entertained’.

Christmas is all about spending time with our family and friends, enjoying the festivities and the food and exchanging gifts. For most of us, Christmas brings us a sense of warmth, love and happiness.
Sadly, for many disadvantaged Australian children who cannot live with their own families, Christmas isn’t a joyous time at all. Many have no happy memories of Christmas – let alone received a present.
This year, you can make a real difference and help brighten the lives of Australian kids living in foster care.
