Charity - Project Night Night

Project Night Night

I want to start highlighted charities that are giving back to the community. Project Night Night donates a bag filled with an adorable teddy bear, clothing or blanket and a book, to homeless and or less fortunate children. To donate or read more about them, go to Project Night Night. To find out what shelters they give to, go here.

"Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year, free of charge, to homeless children who need our childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal -- all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children we serve.

Every child who receives one of our Night Night Packages leaves the shelter owning a book which
encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend. We have one objective – to deliver our Night Night Packages to every homeless child in the country who needs one. Project Night Night is a tax exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. We work with over 10,000 volunteers each year, and we are the leading provider of nighttime comforts for homeless children."


  1. You know I want to be able to do a project like this here in Portugal with crochet.
    I have worked on one in Brasil that was like this: we sent crochet squares to someone, we would choose a region closer to us. She would acumulate the squares and then some gatherings were done to put the squares together in blankets and scarfs and offered in elderly people institutions.

    Thanks for divulgating this organization
    Loved the headwrappers as well :D
    Much love
