1 in 3 babies in Wisconsin lack enough diapers to stay clean, dry, & healthy
When we think of basic needs and poverty alleviation, we tend to think of food, clothing, shelter, & water. Diapers are an overlooked, yet much needed, item. Here in the United States, 1 in 3 families struggle to meet the basic diapering needs of their children. All babies deserve to be clean, dry and healthy.
Provision of diapers will increase sanitation and hygiene for children
Supplying diapers can solve diaper need and empower families to self-sufficiency. With enough diapers to keep children clean, dry, healthy families can participate in everyday life. This means ending the choice between food, diapers, medication, rent or utilities. With diapers, a child can go to childcare, and a caregiver can go to work.
By donating as little as $10, you will help children survive and thrive.
When families are struggling to afford everyday essentials, diapers are a tool to empower families out of poverty. With diapers, families can participate in daily activities, and special events too (like birthday parties!). With diaper needs solved, families can focus on educational programs, caregiver access to employment, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
98%-Can be used for diapers
2%-Can cover processing fees
This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.
