Thanks to everyone who played, supported, strutted and sponsored PJ Day. This would never have happened to the scale it did had it not been started in Jasper. Did you hear that world? It all started here in Jasper and when you see it all over the world in a couple of years you can say, “hey, I know where this started, I saw the pictures” or you can say ” I was there in my PJ’s”. Next year will be our second year and the people that come on board can also brag about being on the leading edge of a movement that will give voices to the silent sufferers and will be the first little step towards helping millions of people get their lives back, thus allowing millions more with other ailments get the medical attention they need because we’ve freed up the resources we need from the medical world to survive.
Below are the video links of the evening and links to the photos and the articles in Jasper after the event. I will be making a photo book of the entire day’s events soon, but here’s a sampling of the wonderful energy that was the first ever ever ever PJ Day and Evening for Autoimmune Disease Awareness.

Thanks to you all for everything and showing me that what I believe, the fact that there is more good than bad on this planet and we can all do something to make things better, is true.
Here are a couple of things from our local newspaper after the event:
Also some pictures from the day in our amazing town, where if you weren’t wearing PJ’s you were odd man/woman out. Here’s to next year when this can become a global phenomenon.
I will try and put them all together in a nice book that anyone can buy (not from me – i.e. I won’t be profiteering from this at all) but that’ll take a bit as I’m like the millions I’m trying to be a voice for – a sick person on chemo with limited energy reserves. You should have seen me before though, I was a machine – ha ha ha, those were the good ole days.
