Join the ultimate dress-down Friday

It's time to ditch the workwear... and stay in your PJs all day! Pyjamarama is for everyone and we've got everything you need to take part.

All you have to do is pitch up to work in your PJs on 7 June, donate £1 each to BookTrust and have a fun-filled day at the office. If you haven't already signed up for your free downloadable fundraising pack, just click here.

Get snap happy

We’d love to see as many team photos as possible of you and your colleagues in PJs at work. Pick a time that’s easy for everyone and book it in their diaries so they don’t forget! Share your pics on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #pyjamarama and we’ll retweet and share our favourites.

Play PJ photo bingo

Pyjamarama’s a great chance to get creative and have some fun at work. Why not try a game of PJ bingo? Just choose six scenarios and see who can get all their pics done first. You can download your very own bingo card here.

A few ideas include snaps of you and your colleagues: on the phone; with your boss; going for lunch; on your journey to work; in a meeting (a bonus if it’s with a client!); freestyle.

Or feel free to come up with your own ideas - the more the merrier! We’ll be sharing the funniest, so don’t forget to include @booktrust and #pyjamarama when you post.

Spread the word

We've got loads of great stuff you can download to help you spread the word about Pyjamarama at work, including information cards with donation details, badges to let everyone know why you’re wearing PJs and an email template encouraging colleagues to join in or donate. Check out the downloads below, or sign up for the full downloadable pack, which includes a brilliant social media toolkit.

How the money you raise can help children like Lee

Lee is growing up in one of the most deprived areas of the UK. His mum has struggled to put food on the table and, as a result, Lee has missed out on the joy and confidence that bedtime reading brings.

Thanks to the help of donors, BookTrust has supported Lee and his mum with guidance and books for bedtime that Lee can call his own. Now, they both look forward to cuddling up together to read a story every night, Lee is doing better at school and his confidence has soared.
