Diapers in Need- Every Little Bottom Campaign

Monday, June 28, 2010

I was contacted the other day by Huggies asking if I would help bring awareness on the issue of Every Little Bottom and after much thought and learning about the program how could I not?
This is a serious issue in Canada and the US and moms and their baby's need our help so lets spread awareness.  Please feel free to post this on your blog just leave me your blogs url & include my link.

Did you know that 1 in 3 American moms struggle and 1 in 5 Canadian moms struggle with diaper need?  These moms have had to cut back on basics such as food, utilities like heat and even childcare to provide diapers for their babies.
Without diapers, mothers can't meet one of their baby's basic needs, yet there is little support for those moms in need and Huggies has partnered in a special program and is looking for our help to bring awareness to the much needed issue across North America in Diaper care.  I can't stress enough to help bring awareness to this topic and I will do my best to donate as diapers are always on sale and since I cloth diaper throwing in $9.99+ on a bag of any brand of disposables to help others is something I'd love to do.
Diaper Banks have been created  and with clean, dry diapers, babies are emotionally and physically healthier.  I couldn't imagine using a re-soiled diaper like in the ad above.  How do Diaper Banks work? In the same way as Food Banks, just drop it in a box.  They collect, sort and distribute to families in need, most of these Diaper Banks were created by mothers because public resources were minimal they would collect through fundraisers and diaper drives.  These moms have created the nations first Diaper Drive and Huggies is in there full swing to promote and kindly ask for your help by making donations and when you see a Diaper Bank, please think to donate diapers or head over to this link and make cash donation through Amazon.
HUGGIES® is donating 2.5 million diapers – 2 million to community diaper bank partners in the U.S. and 500,000 to Food Banks Canada.

Thank you for your time. I hope I've helped bring awareness to this topic & to give you something to think about the next time your down the diaper isle.   Lets help when we can.

This breaks my heart - I love that you are supporting this issue. We donate diapers regularly to Childhaven in Seattle, which supports abused children from birth to five years. They are always short of supplies, and the teachers often buy diapers and diaper cream out of their own (small) salary.

This is great to see! That people are providing to diapers to those in need. We donate to Crisis Pregnancy Center. We figure we can't tell someone don't get an abortion, and then turn our heads while they fend for themselves. We cloth diaper, but still get gifts of disposables. So that's where they go!
