Win free PJ's and help a great cause!

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and last Sunday, November 14th, was recognized as World Diabetes Day.   A leading sleepwear company, Komar, has launched an initiative called "Pjs for the Cure" with the goal of raising $1 million dollars to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Before I get to the fun pj giveaway, here are some facts you may not know about juvenile diabetes and this great event:
  • Each year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
  • You cannot "catch" diabetes, nor has juvenile diabetes been linked directly to genetics or lifestyle.  
  • Insulin does not cure diabetes, it only helps to keep the patient alive.
  • 100% of every sale from PJs For The Cure will be donated directly to the JDRF to fund further research to find a cure for juvenile diabetes. 

 To win a set of women's, girl's, or boy's pj's, , please post one comment for as many of the following as you like.  And please tell your friends, too!  
I will select a winner at random on November 30th to receive a pair of jammies.  Please make sure I have some way to contact you for size, style, shipping address, etc.

Spread the word!  And thanks for supporting Juvenile Diabetes!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Komar and PJs For The Cure and received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
