The ones I bought ran a bit small so you might want to err on a larger pair.
A good way to donate to a good cause
When you purchase these you are helping women in India to get out of prostitution.
PUNJAMMIES™ are created in after-care facilities for women who have been rescued, released or escaped from a life of forced prostitution. Their lives have been marked by a message – you are a commodity – to be used for others' gain.
PUNJAMMIES™ is the vehicle used to empower each woman. Instead of the vicious cycle of her former life, the making of PUNJAMMIES starts her on her own virtuous cycle of self-reliance and dignity. A simple thing like making pajamas is what it takes. With the brothel behind and opportunity ahead in a new, supportive community, she is gradually restored to health. When its time, she is trained to sew -- and more importantly, to contribute as an integral part of an inter-dependent team. Here is where she learns that she is valuable, to take pride in her work, and to trust again. To trust again--in herself and in others! Her past diminishes and her future brightens.
