Help parents provide for their little ones.
Millions of babies and toddlers in the U.S. live in families burdened by poverty. The cost of baby basics like clothing and blankets adds up quickly. And diapers, which are a daily necessity from the moment a baby is born, cost an average of around $100 a month — but are not covered by government support programs. For parents earning minimum wage, that’s a substantial portion of their monthly income, even if they’re working full time.
Families regularly report cutting back on essentials like food and utilities to cover the cost of diapers, but even with these sacrifices they often still can’t afford an adequate daily supply. This can force them to delay changing diapers or rinse and reuse disposable diapers, both of which lead to negative health impacts on their babies. In addition, most childcare centers require parents to provide disposable diapers, so without them, parents are forced to miss work or school.
Your gift of $45 — the average cost of a pack of diapers — can give hope to struggling U.S. parents by providing diapers, blankets, and other necessities, helping them to keep their children healthy and take concrete steps to build a brighter future for their family.
