Ringing Rocks Kids Wear Pajamas for a Cause

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Ringing Rocks Elementary School.

Before they headed home to wait for Santa in their cozy PJs, students (and now a
few teachers) at Ringing Rocks Elementary School came to school in their PJs for a good cause.

As a holiday service project, Ringing Rocks hosted a Pajama Day in support of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. 

Students and staff raised over $800 in donations to further the research and care that leads to life-saving treatment for children at CHOP.

Lisa Rabbitt, associate director of school and youth programs at CHOP, told the school "you that by supporting Pajama Day you are helping the kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia! Each day at CHOP physicians are providing lifesaving care and cures for children with rare and complex diseases, scientist are making discoveries that lead to new cures and treatments and none of it would be possible without the support from people like you."

"So from everyone here at CHOP, THANK YOU for saying YAY to Pajama Day," Rabbit wrote.
