Help Us Cover More Bottoms!
There are 10,000+ kids under the age of 2 in King County living in poverty. To diaper those kids for a year it would take 22 MILLION diapers. In 2013, with your help we distributed 824,635 diapers to local children. We need your help to Stuff our Bus full of diapers!

Did you know:
-1 out of 3 U.S. families struggle to afford an adequate supply of diapers for their children
-Diapers are not covered by Food Stamps, WIC, or any other government assistance programs
It is heartbreaking to consider that children who sit in dirty diapers are:
-more subject to painful rashes, infection and disease
-going to CRY.....a lot....which increases their chances of abuse by caretakers who are already stressed
-likely to be so consumed by the pain of their situation that their cognitive development may be at risk of being delayed
-deserving of having enough diapers to provide them the fresh start to life they deserve
By addressing this key material need of low-income families with children:
- families living on the margin do not have to choose between buying diapers and other necessities, such as food, rent or utilities
-fewer babies are forced to endure sitting in soiled diapers for long periods of time
-parents can find stable work when they can provide the required supply of diapers to take their kids to day care
-household stress is reduced and parents can focus more time and attention on creating a nurturing home where their children can thrive
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOR CARING ABOUT KIDS!
