On May 21, 2016, Doulas Northwest will host the 1st Annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive and 5k at Heritage Park in Olympia, Washington.
In addition to children’s activities, vendor booths, food and more, this community event will bring together our many supporters and partners in order to raise
awareness about the babies in need of clean, dry diapers throughout Thurston and Pierce County.
One in three mothers in America struggle to provide their babies with clean diapers. Unfortunately there is very little help or public resources to alleviate this problem. Food assistance programs do not extend to diaper purchases, most licensed daycare facilities require disposable diapers, and most laundromats do not allow cloth diapers to be washed due to sanitary concerns. This can lead to babies being kept in dirty diapers for extended periods of time, causing both physical and emotional suffering for so many little ones.
Doulas Northwest has partnered with the YWCA Other Bank to raise awareness for these babies and families. All diapers and a portion of the proceeds will benefit this amazing organization as well as be distributed to local Women’s Shelters and families in need.
Registration for the 5K and family fun run will soon be open. Diaper drop off locations will soon be announced. To inquire about additional details, please contact Casondra and Kristyn, co-owners of Doulas Northwest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can't wait to see you in May!
