We have no plans for a denim diaper anytime soon… or ever. But one thing is for sure, babies need diapers much more than fashionistas need their designer denim. Did you know that an infant can go through up to 12 diapers per day? Or that it runs about $100 per month to keep just one child in clean healthy diapers? The costs adds up quickly, and that’s why Caroline Lutz and Melissa Ratcliff, two mothers who met at a baby group, started LA Diaper Drive, an all-volunteer organization which raises money to provide diapers for families in need, so no parent has to make the choice between putting food on the table or providing clean diapers for their children. In addition to providing diapers all year long, LA Diaper Drive also uses their programs to help parents and family members learn important life skills that can improve the well-being of their families.
It’s a great charity if you are in a Mother’s Day giving kind of mood. Learn more here.
