Firefighter Dayna and Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog Donate Books to the Great Sprout Tuck-In

Publisher and Author Dayna Hilton and Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog recently donated 25 copies of the children's fire safety book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, to The Great Sprout Tuck-in. The copies were signed by Firefighter Dayna and "pawed" by Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog.

The Great Sprout Tuck-In is a prosocial initiative that extends Sprout’s “good night” mission and encourages families to share in the spirit of giving.
Sprout is the first 24-hour preschool network created for children ages 2-5 and their parents and caregivers and is available on TV, on demand and online.
In partnership with the Pajama Program, a national nonprofit organization, it is their goal to help ensure that every child has a good night by donating new bedtime books and cozy pajamas to the Pajama Program.

Sprout will match donations of new pajamas and new books for up to 100,000 children in need during the first year of The Great Sprout Tuck-In, which will run through September 30 of this year.

The new pajamas and new books collected by the Pajama Program and The Great Sprout Tuck-In will go directly to children in need all over the country, including those in foster care who are waiting and hoping to be adopted.

The Pajama Program is a perfect fit with Sprout’s mission. Since it was launched in 2005, Sprout has been committed to following every step of a preschooler’s day — from early morning until bedtime. Sprout's signature programming block, The Good Night Show, helps children wind down with bedtime stories and other evening routines, providing our viewers with good nights. Now with The Great Sprout Tuck-in, Sprout can provide children in need with good nights, too.
