The economic crisis has hurt a lot of people, especially children and families. There are social-safety net programs that are helping as best they can, but more than 2.2 million children live below the poverty line in California alone.
And did you know that diapers and wipes are not covered under WIC or food stamp programs? Poor and especially homeless families often have to make tough choices between food and diapers, forcing them to reuse old diapers or to keep their kids in dirty diapers longer than is healthy or sanitary.
On May 1st Help A Mother Out is hosting a Wine and Cheese Date Night. All you need to do is register here for your free ticket (hurry, the numbers are limited!), buy a package of diapers to bring with you (or 2 or 10!), get dressed up and come on over to the party! Yours truly will be one of the many lovely hostesses. Tillamook Cheese, Barefoot Wine and Fresh & Easy are donating food and drink, so you don’t even have to bring any money. Just bring those diapers!
See you on May 1st!
