Wipe Out #DiaperNeed

A signature initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), the 4th annual Diaper Need Awareness Week draws attention to the issue of diaper need and prompts individuals, organizations, diaper banks, communities and elected officials to take action and help get diapers to babies who need them.

Today, there are 5.3 million children under the age of 3 living in poor and low-income families in the U.S., and we know that diaper need is a consequence of poverty that impacts 1 in 3 families. When there is not enough money in a family budget to meet basic needs, parents face troubling choices between rent, food, transportation and even diapers.  Many people are shocked to learn that diapers cannot be purchased with food stamps and other safety-net programs created to help young children. 

In 2014, NDBN member diaper banks (250+ operating in 45 states, D.C. and Guam) distributed nearly 37 million diapers to babies in need -- 20 million of which were donated by NDBN founding sponsor Huggies.  

The first step in learning about #DiaperNeed is awareness. Learn more at DiaperNeed.org, and support a local diaper bank and/or the national network.

    THANK YOU!
    Because of your support, our debut Thunderclap has reached the initial goal of at least 100 supporters. Amazingly, the combined social reach of the "1st 100" is nearly 250,000 people!  

    But, we're not done.  

    We're going to keep pushing to see if we can double the reach and get to 500,000 and beyond, before next Wednesday.  

    Please remind your followers to donate 1 tweet to support #DiaperNeed Awareness Week (9/28-10/4)! thndr.it/1MtdxdU
