#Jumpfordiapers Event

Heeey!

This past Sunday my bloggy BFF Trina and I in conjunction with Atlanta Diaper Relief hosted a diaper drive at Mighty Jumps indoor playhouse.

Glad to announce that we collected nearly 1600 diapers which will approximately service 55 families for the month. Yahhhhhh!

The turn out was awesome and everything went off without a hitch. Trina and I were so happy to be able to do something to help out Atlanta families that are in need.

Here’s some food for thought.

  • An adequate supply of diapers can cost a family over $100/month
  • 1 in 3 families struggles to purchase diapers
  • 1 in 20 moms clean out soiled disposable diapers for reuse
  • The majority of daycare centers require the use of disposable diapers

Nothing is more heartbreaking than knowing your child needs something that you can’t provide. I have become very passionate about this cause and you will be seeing more of the efforts as I gear up to volunteer my time with the organization.

If you are interested in hosting a diaper drive or would like to help please check out Atlanta Diaper Relief website for more details.

    Thank you so much for inviting me out! I had such a wonderful time and although Mckenzie wasn’t feeling well (ahem the reason why I think I’m sick) she said she had a great time! Please let me know what else I can do to support such great causes!
