Snuggle up for a cause

These pajamas aren’t just adorable and created by a local mother.

They’re also jammies for a good cause. Leela Rao founded Pajamas with Love in memory of her daughter, Priyanka, who lost her battle with childhood leukemia at age 8 after four years in and out of the hospital.

“While she was going through years of treatment, she insisted on bringing her own pajamas to the hospital to remind her of home, where she felt happy, safe, comfortable,” Rao said. “Wearing them gave her a sense of hope that she could soon go back home.”

Made with 100% ribbed, chemical-free cotton, the pajamas come in crocodile, giraffe, fish, butterfly and house-brand designs, including regular and footed styles in sizes 3M to 4T (all $24.99 each). 

A whopping 50% of the brand’s profits will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to support pediatric cancer research. Learn more at
