Lightening The Load...One Tushy At A Time

There are a lot of things that we take for granted every day.

Financial Stability.

Food.

Water.

Shelter.

Life.

Family. 

Diapering our babies. 

There are many families who start and end each day stressed out about how they are going to provide clean diapers for their children.

This stress can induce severe negativity and depression amplifying the already desperate situation. The reprecussions financially, emotionally and physically increase the potential health risks for children and leave parents feeling helpless and hopeless.

Of all the things to be stressed about, Northeast Doulas believes struggling to afford diapers should not be one of them.

1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need

No Child Wet Behind is a not for profit organization set up by Northeast Doulas owners, Debbie Aglietti and Randy Patterson specifically to tackle this issue. "Our goal is to raise awareness, educate and provide diapers to families across the nation."

This spring on May 21, 2016 the No Child Wet Behind National Diaper Drive and Fundraiser will spread across 30 cities nation wide. More than 30 doula businesses/agencies are preparing community events in their cities to raise funds and collect diaper donations. Each local event will gather diapers and funds to benefit a local charity which will aid in community diaper distribution.

With your support, Northeast Doulas will be hosting our annual Diaper Drive event at FDR Park in Yorktown Heights, NY. The event will take place from 8am-noon and will include a 5k race, 1 mile family fun run, refreshments, vendors, bounce houses and family activities.

You are encouraged to support a NCWB  Diaper Drive in your community or make a donation to the "No Child Wet Behind" organization itself.  here.

 

 

How can you help? No Child Wet Behind accepts donations to help cover operations so the foundation can continue to grow.

Donations are distributed among participating local beneficiaries and No Child Wet Behind makes an annual donation to the National Diaper Bank. We are currently accepting both diaper and financial donations, which you can access on the Northeast Doulas events page or directly through No Child Wet Behind website. Don't forget to register online to participate in the 5K race or 1 mile fun run! 

Why is it so important to keep this program going?

Diapers are a basic necessity not provided by government- backed programs like already existing food and shelter funds.

No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive has been such a huge success and our support continues to grow each year, we can't wait to see what this upcoming event brings. What an amazing community we are when we all work together!
