Millions of babies and toddlers in the U.S. live in families facing poverty. The cost of baby basics like clothing and blankets adds up quickly. And diapers, which are as important as food and rent, cost an average of $100 a month – but are not covered by government support programs.
Families often report cutting back on essentials like food and utilities to cover the cost of diapers, but 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 emotional and physical impact on their babies. In addition, most childcare centers require parents to provide disposable diapers, so without them, parents cannot go to 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 and other necessities, helping them to keep their children healthy and take concrete steps to a brighter future for their family.
Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to Poverty in America.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
