ABOUT THE BOOK:
Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas is the story of Genevieve Piturro’s triumphant leap off the corporate ladder to find her life’s true calling. What started with a simple question from a little girl led Genevieve to conceive of and build the nonprofit Pajama Program in 2001, resulting in a featured appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show and an awe-inspiring display of compassion throughout the US and beyond. Today, Pajama Program has distributed over seven million pairs of pajamas, opened 63 chapters across the US, and established reading centers for children.
In her inspirational narrative, Genevieve Piturro shows you how to
• notice and listen to the quiet, internal voice nudging you in a new direction;
• lead with empathy, passion, and purpose;
• realize the importance of the human connection we’ve lost in our modern world.
Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas brings you to the heart of the matter with eye-opening lessons in leadership, personal growth, and the tools and motivation to “find your pajamas.”
Genevieve Piturro founded the hugely successful national non- profit Pajama Program when a six-year-old girl’s question almost 20 years ago changed her life forever. After a career in television marketing, she jumped off the corporate ladder.
