Every Little Bottom Diaper Donation

I am a member of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. This every little bottom diaper donation post has been compensated by Huggies®. All opinion expressed here are my own.

Did you know this week is National Diaper Need Awareness Week? Did you also know that one in three families in the United States don’t have enough diapers for their babies? That’s right! Babies and toddlers are sitting in wet, soiled diapers longer than necessary because their parents can’t afford to change them.

The purpose of Diaper Need Awareness Week is to recognize that there are people in the United States who struggle to provide clean, dry diapers for their children, and to help them obtain the diapers they need. When I learned about the mission behind Huggies® Every Little Bottom, I knew I wanted to help spread the word about an organization dedicated to raising awareness about diaper need.

What is Diaper Need?

Every Little Bottom Diaper Donation

Every Little Bottom Diaper Bank Donation

I recently took a trip to St. Margaret’s Center and donated diapers, thanks to a generous donation from the National Diaper Bank Network’s founding sponsor Huggies®.

Every Little Bottom Diaper Donation

St. Margaret’s Center

St. Margaret’s Center has served low-income and homeless families since 1987. The Center provides emergency assistance for over 10,000 individuals living in the Los Angeles area. Their services include a food pantry, utility assistance, Citizenship and computer literacy classes, food stamp and health insurance application assistance, counseling, periodic medical services and other services such as providing diapers.

While at the Center I got a chance to meet some of the workers and volunteers, and visit the food pantry.

Every Little Bottom Diaper Donation

While speaking with one of the workers, I learned that they hand out approximately 200 lunches and 250 bags of food per week. When it comes to diaper donations they only receive them four or five times a year. And when they do get them they are usually for newborns, size 1 or training pants. They were happy to receive the size 3 diapers because the larger size diapers are much needed by the families they help. After hearing this, I was happy that I chose this organization to donate to because every diaper donation, no matter how big or small helps.

If you are local, please consider donating to the St. Margaret’s Center. In addition to diapers toiletries, especially toothbrushes are always needed and greatly appreciated for the individuals who are homeless that visit the center.

How You Can Help

This week across the country, there will be diaper drives to help provide clean, dry diapers to those in need. Get involved by visiting the National Diaper Bank Network for an event near you.

You can also help the fight against diaper need by visiting Huggies.com/Tester. While there, play games, participate in challenges and enter to win prizes. For every prize entry received, Huggies® Every Little Bottom will donate a diaper to a baby in need. And Huggies® Rewards members can donate points to support babies in need through the National Diaper Bank Network at Huggies.com/Rewards. Did you know that you can diaper a baby in need for 1 day for 16 points? I didn’t. Before learning about how they helped, I would just trash them. Now that I’m educated on all things diaper need, I’m saving them so that I can help keep every little bottom that I can stay clean and dry.

The giving doesn’t stop at St Margaret’s Center! One winner will receive a one month supply of diapers! And a location near you will also be provided with diapers for one baby for a month.

Have you donated to a diaper bank or Huggies® Rewards? Have you ever participated in a diaper drive? What was your experience?

Take dropping the fork on the ground for example – they say to let it happen a few times then take a bite of food to engage them in something else. That to me just seems like common sense.
