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.
