New York, NY (WiredPRNews.com) — Komar Distribution Services, the largest pajama manufacturer in the U.S., is launching PJs For The Cure on November 2, 2009, to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Komar has designed women’s and kid’s pajama sets to raise money to help find a cure for type I diabetes (juvenile diabetes).
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation will receive 100% of the sales from Komar’s PJs for the Cure initiative. Komar hopes the money raised will fund further research for a cure for the chronic disease that predominately strikes in childhood. According to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with diabetes in the U.S. each year, that’s 40 children per day.
Komar’s goal is to raise $1 million for the JDRF by selling comfy, cotton pajamas, available just in time for holiday gift giving. Komar will launch a dedicated website, http://www.pjsforthecure.org to sell the pajamas. The website will also launch on November 2, 2009.
