BENEFITING: National Diaper Bank Network Inc
EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2015
Help Mothers & More celebrate its 15th Annual Mother’s Day Campaign with the “Make A Mother's Day” Diaper Drive benefiting the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) and its member diaper banks throughout the country.
Moms know the ins and outs of diapers better than anyone, and they appreciate how something as simple as a diaper can keep babies happy. However, nearly one-third of poor and low-income mothers in the U.S. face a daily struggle of not having enough diapers to keep their baby clean, dry and healthy. Known as diaper need, this hidden consequence of poverty is a significant cause of maternal stress, according to a 2013 study published in Pediatrics. Plus, federal anti-poverty programs such as food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) do not cover diapers, which can cost up to $100 per month per baby.
In keeping with its calling to help moms everywhere through all stages, phases and transitions of motherhood, Mothers & More (a national membership organization) will be holding diaper drives across the country. From April 1 - May 31 Mothers & More chapters, working in more than 30 metro areas, will hold diaper drives at a wide variety of community events, including a preschool fair, a consignment sale and a community play date. Mothers & More will also hold a national collection here on Crowdrise. All donations collected by Mothers & More will be distributed to a NDBN member diaper bank, or to a community-based organization that provides direct assistance to families in need. To find a local Mothers & More chapter please visit www.MothersAndMore.org.
Diapers are a basic need for children in the U.S., as essential to their health and well-being as food, shelter and a mother’s love. Please join us and donate today. Together, we can make a "change".
