A Little Goes A Long Way
For the price of a daily cup of coffee, you can help under resourced families meet their most basic needs.
Donations Via PayPal & Credit Card
Donations directly support our diaper and period product distribution programs, which provide over 1,000,000 free diapers and 200,000 period supplies to families in need every year. Although we give them away, we purchase 80% of the diapers and period products for our programs. We rely on fundraising events, drives, and cash donations to fulfill our mission of ensuring that every family has the basics they need to thrive. Donations do more than just put diapers and period products on a shelf in our warehouse. They make a real and lasting impact in the lives of over 2,000 families each month. Changing the world starts with you.
Donations Via Snail Mail
Monetary donations make it possible for us to continue providing specific sizes and quantities of diapers, and period products, that we can’t always count on from drives alone. We can purchase those items for less than half of retail cost, which means that your donation is essentially doubled.
