Lots of Irish people wore their pyjamas to work today - here's the heart-warming reason why

Here’s a hint: it wasn’t just for comfort reasons.

IRISH AUTISM ACTION was founded in 2001 to bring positive changes to the lives of those affected by autism.

That includes raising awareness, early detection diagnosis, education, counselling – and getting us all to wear our PJs to work. Yep – today was National Pyjama Day, in aid of IAA.

And plenty of people all around the country got into the spirit:

Sure who would say no to a completely legit duvet day, after all?

If you’d like to donate to Irish Autism Action, you can text PJDAY to 50300 to donate €2. All of the donations go directly to the group, and the text line closes on the 13th of March.
