Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wore pajamas to office for a particular reason. What is it?
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world right now. Not only he has a lot of money but he also has a unique style of doing things. The man did something really unique to raise awareness about childhood cancer, which is the second leading cause of death in the US between kids aged 4 and 14.
Jeff Bezos wore pajamas to an Amazon meeting on Wednesday and stood out from the rest of his employees. He wore a black night suit with white piping, paired with bedroom slippers and also shared a photo of himself on Instagram describing his unusual behavior.

Why am I wearing pajamas to an Amazon board meeting? September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and each year Amazon partners with @ACCOrg to raise awareness of childhood cancer – second leading cause of death for kids in the U.S. between ages 4 and 14. Today, Amazonians across the globe show their support by wearing their pajamas to work – also known as #PJammin. Another way we’re raising awareness is through our special #GoGold boxes – you may receive one during September. Never have I been more comfortable at an Amazon board meeting!
He also made it clear that all his employees will be following in his footsteps for the month of September by wearing pajamas to work to show their solidarity and support to children suffering from the deadly disease.
And we browse through social media, we find Bezos is right. All Amazon employees went to work wearing pyjamas to raise awareness about the disease – cancer.

Minnesota is in Seattle for @Amazon Pajama Day! Children with cancer spend weeks in hospitals in their pajamas, and today Kat, Jeremy and I are joining with thousands of other Amazonians in showing these brave kids they’re not alone. #GoGold #MSP9 #PJammin #DeliveringSmiles pic.twitter.com/QeXRhFrExi

“Another way we’re raising awareness is through our special #GoGold boxes – you may receive one during September”
Go Gold boxes by Amazon are special packing boxes adorned with a gold ribbon — the international symbol of childhood cancer.
Kudos to Bezos and all the other Amazon employees for supporting a noble cause and spreading awareness about the disease. Keep going boys!
