It’s hard to believe it but Giving Diapers Giving Hope (GDGH) is five years old! As Director of Operations I know how much the loaned set of cloth diapers helps families, and I’m proud to be a part of the organization.
Diaper Need Awareness Week is September 28th-October 4th this year.
Giving Diapers Giving Hope Executive Director Kim Rosas created this fantastic video with diaper need facts that show the reality that many families face (as well as how Giving Diapers Giving Hope can help).
To raise awareness of diaper need, the role cloth diapers play in the solution as well as fundraising for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope (GDGH), we’re having the first ever (we think) Periscope “telethon” which we’re calling a Periscopathon. Starting at 11 AM on September 28th, participating brands will be broadcasting on Periscope. Give our generous sponsors hearts and make a (tax deductible) donation to Giving Diapers Giving Hope. We’ll be giving away prizes donated by our sponsors and the more money we raise, the more prizes we can give away!
We’ve all heard of black Friday, we may have shopped small on Small Business Saturday, and eagerly anticipated the deals on Cyber Monday. Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? 2014 marks the third annual Giving Tuesday, a day to inspire charitable giving in a season of shopping.
You can choose to donate time, goods or money to the charity of your choice, to make a difference both locally and globally.
On this #GivingTuesday, consider supporting Giving Diapers Giving Hope in their mission to loan diapers to low-income families, ensuring no one has to choose between diapers & utilities and that every baby has a clean diaper!
Did you know that September 8-14, 2014 is Diaper Need Awareness week? The National Diaper Bank Network began this to raise awareness of families choosing between food, diapers and utilities. Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is a fantastic solution for diaper need. To date, the charity has helped about 600 families and shipped almost 11,000 cloth diapers to qualified families.
