This event brings our community together in a powerful way:
-to raise awareness about the 1 in 3.
-to collect diapers to help fill the need.
-to raise additional funds to purchase diapers that are needed.
-to have FUN!
The unfortunate reality:
1 in 3 families in America struggle to buy enough diapers for their babies. Little to no help comes from public resources and food assistance programs do not extend to diaper purchases. Most licensed daycare facilities require disposable diapers and most laundromats do not allow cloth diapers to be washed due to sanitary concerns. All of this can lead to babies being kept in dirty diapers for extended periods of time, causing both physical and emotional suffering with lasting consequences.
Doulas Northwest is pleased to have partnered with Dry Tikes & Wet Wipes to raise awareness for these babies and families. Diapers and financial sponsorships will benefit this amazing organization, being distributed directly to families in need.
Please plan on joining us as we raise awareness, collect diapers, seek financial sponsors, gather racers for our 5K event, and make a difference for area families!
