Ten years ago, Darcy Neighbors was taking Leadership Las Vegas classes at the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. One of the challenges: Come up with a community project that would make a difference in people's lives.

Neighbors visited Child Haven, the Clark County agency that takes in children who are removed from unsafe conditions. Many arrive with only the clothes on their backs. An idea sparked. She set out to give them new pajamas.

DJ for PJs was born.

"When I first thought up the idea, I had no idea how many pajamas would be donated," she said. "If we could gather 500 or 1,000, we'd make an impact. To know the first year, we threw it together, and got 3,000, we were amazed."
