Hey you guys? 

We have 14,200 diapers. FOURTEEN THOUSAND AND TWO HUNDRED diapers. To put in perspective, if we were supporting 1 baby, these diapers would last for 1183 days or until he is 3 years old. So basically, that’s enough to keep one kid in diapers until he is potty trained.

I am literally stumbling trying to find words. A few weeks ago I was having a hard time imagining that the goal of 10,000 diapers would happen but we saw that goal and kept on moving.

There is still one week before we drop these diapers to St. Martin’s Barn, so there is more time to donate. And really until diapers are considered necessary and provided by safety net organizations, our job is not done. But for now, we have done something HUGE.

Thank you for donating, thank you for your support, thank you for sharing updates, links, articles and suggestions. Thank you for seeing the need, thank you for standing up for the cause online.

Thank you. 14200

  1. How fantastic — great job, and congrats!! I have to say: I have a 4-month-old and have completely taken for granted my ability to provide my son with clean diapers. Reading your posts and learning about your fundraising efforts have taught me to appreciate that luxury in a way I never would have before. I definitely hope to support you and other parents in the future. Thank you! <3
