Amazon CEO and the world’s richest man Jeff Bezos attended the company’s board meeting in pyjamas – dark blue nightsuit with white piping. He later put up an Instagram post explaining that he did it for a cause.

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!
PJammin events are hosted in ‘solidarity for the thousands of children living in their pyjamas for months while receiving medical treatment.’ Each event helps raise money to support American Childhood Cancer organisation.
Employees at Amazon followed Jeff Bezos example and also started ‘PJammin’ on Instagram.
