Saadia Organics Blog — eden's pajama project


***SCROLL DOWN FOR THE UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM*** Hi everyone! It's Eden again.  I'm turning six years old in August.  Last year, instead of asking for presents for myself from my friends and family -- I asked them - and you! - to help with my Pajama Project.  Thanks so much for your donation of new pajamas, toothbrushes and toothpaste. You made bedtime better for a lot of Moroccan kids. It was super fun to take the presents to the kids at the school that my uncle works at.  They were so surprised to get the packages.  One thing that we...

Presenting... Eden's Pajama Project

Hi everyone! My name is Eden and I'm going to be five years old on August 15th. I am very lucky. I have lots of clothes, toys, books and I even have my own room. But I have been to Morocco where my Grandma Saadia lives. Lots of the kids there don't have very many things. No toys or art stuff. And not very many clothes to wear. Some kids smaller than me have to sell tissues on the streets for money. It makes me feel sad. I was surprised when my Daddy told me that hardly any poor Moroccan...
