Thanks to Sandy for sending us the picture of her cookin’ up a storm on Christmas morning in her Ojamas.
The Pajama Program is a non-profit organization that provides new, warm pajamas and books to children in need in the Unites states and around the world, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. The program started with personal contributions from founders Genevieve Piturro, her friend Alice Clark, and their friends and relatives. The Pajama Program has grown nationwide and now receives contributions from generous supporters and fundraising events across the country.
One such event is the Obama Pajama Inaugural Ball being held in Washington D.C. Sunday, January 18th. Hosted by reknowned actress, Carrie Fisher, the event begins at 7pm with a VIP Dinner in the Rotunda of the Ronald Reagan Building followed at 8pm by a Gala Reception in the Pavillion. Attire is black tie/ball gown or pajamas/nightgown.
A natural and perfectly complimentary patner, Ojamas Sleepwear, is co-sponsoring the event. Click here to buy tickets or make a donation.
While you’re wrapping or unwrapping or waiting for your Ojamas, here’s a little entertainment for you. A vey nice job by Seal with the song that Sam Cooke made famous. Wow, this really captures the feelings of people who have hung on to a tattered shred of hope for so long. I’m posting it here because, well I just felt it spoke to our collective hopes at this time in history. My favorite line is “There were times I thought I wouldn’t last for long. Now I think I’m able, able to carry on.” Thank God, a change is gonna come.
An update from their Obama Community Blog:
All orders placed before 12/15 are either already in the mail or being shipped this weekend with an estimated delivery before Christmas (12/23-24). There will be some that will arrive later, but it is impossible to tell which ones as the US Postal Service is making excellent progress with in all geographies so far. We are dedicating all of our resources to printing labels and postage and packaging orders for shipment from now until all orders placed through 12/15 have been mailed.
If you’d like to know the status of your order specifically, please send an email to email@example.com and include the invoice number as well as your last name. We ask that you do not call us for status updates on the shipment of existing orders at this time. Phone requests for status are not being answered because it takes our staff away from packing and shipping which are are tasks that require human concentration and focus. Answering phones to search for status can introduce distractions that cause errors which we are stringently trying to avoid at this critical time to ensure that everyone receives error-free delivery. We’ll be back to answering the phones as usual after we’ve shipped everything ordered through 12/15 (estimated Monday, 12/22).
Orders placed after 12/15 are being delivered as soon as possible. Most will be shipped before 12/23. We thank all of you for your enthusiastic embrace of Ojamas and for your patience as we deliver them to you as quickly as possible.
Our offer of a free “Yes We Did” sticker expired today as we have exceeded our alotment of 1000 units. There are still plenty of Ojamas (pajamas and gowns) available in all sizes for holiday delivery, but we’ve run out of the Shepard Fairey stickers. Everyone who ordered Ojamas gowns or pajamas before today will receive one (per order) before Christmas. If you didn’t get your order in soon enough for the sticker, don’t let that stop you from getting the best political pajamas and gowns in history. Whether you’re collecting Obama memorabilia or you feel a special connection with the new First Family as many of us supporters do, you can give the most memorable and unique gift of the season with Ojamas. Orders placed before 12/15 for delivery in the US are guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas. Orders placed between 12/16 and 12/20 have a good chance of being delivered by 12/24, but each day that passes after 12/16 poses a greater challenge for a pre-Christmas delivery. Don’t forget inauguration. Even if you don’t get your order placed in time for Christmas, there is no finer way to enjoy the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States than while wrapped in the soft warmth of genuine Ojamas. Order yours now.
