I am clearly the GroundFloor Media PJ slacker, but the rest of my colleagues showed up in style today to support Denver’s Road Home (http://www.denversroadhome.org/) by celebrating PJ Day.
In case you were shocked to walk into Starbucks and see folks dressed up in their favorite footed pajamas, today employees throughout Denver could pay $5 to wear their PJs to work. Ramonna is part of Leadership Denver this year and thanks to one of her classmates, Jennifer Hallam, made a pledge to Denver’s Road Home that GroundFloor Media would pay the way for all of our team members so they could join the cause.
In case you have missed seeing photos of our Mayor in PJs and have yet to trip over the donation meters that line the streets of Denver, Denver’s Road Home is Mayor Hickenlooper’s 10-year plan to end homelessness. During the initiatives first two years, the following has been accomplished:
• 1,243 new units of housing for the homeless have been created
• 957 families have received eviction assistance
• 3,278 homeless people received employment assistance
• 415 families have been mentored through the faith initiative
I cant think of a better reason to spend the day in PJs. In fact, I decided to celebrate a little late and plan to wear mine now.
