  • American Academy of Pediatrics reported staying in soiled diapers increases a child’s risk for painful skin rashes, scarring, & infections with potentially serious side effects such as kidney damage, poor growth, & struggles developmentally & socially.
  • The pain that a parent or caregiver feels at not being able to meet their children’s basic needs adds stress & tension to the already difficult task of parenting.
  • A baby needs 10 to 12 diapers a day, & a toddler needs approximately 8 diapers. (dcdiaperbank.org)
  • 1 in 20 moms who has had to cut back on other purchases to pay for diapers has reused a disposable diaper. (dcdiaperbank.org)
  • Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large discount store can double or triple the monthly cost. (Huggies Little Bottoms)

"No mother should have to worry about either buying diapers or food at the time you need, but so many do. I'm just writing this to say thank you so much for being there when I needed you the most and giving me that peace of mind in my time of need.."

Diaper Recipient

"You made me feel like a better mother for doing what was necessary for my children instead of a helpless woman down on her luck. If it hadn't been for you and your great idea I may have resorted to letting our dirty diapers dry out and reusing them. Though diapers may be a small thing in the grand scheme of things when you don't have them and have two children in need they are much more than a small thing."

"The contribution makes it so much easier for me being a single father raising a 9-month-old as well as a 3 year old. You totally make it possible for me and my kids to make it the month when I come up short. As you know the cost of pampers and baby formula are at least two of my biggest expenses that I incur and sometimes I don't know how I'm going to make it.
