Besides making sure Ava’s basic needs are met, I want her to continue to grow and learn mentally, physically, and emotionally throughout her entire life. It truly breaks my heart to think about how over 1/3 of the U.S. population is struggling to meet a child’s basic needs, specifically diaper need.These families are struggling to provide enough diapers to keep their baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy. Diapers can’t be bought with food stamps, y’all. The impact that this has on a family’s dynamic and well-being, resulting in feelings of stress, defeat, and guilt, is absolutely disheartening.If parents can’t provide their child with enough diapers for childcare, they simply cannot attend, which results in parents missing work or school. As we all can relate, raising children is hard enough without having to worry about having enough diapers for your child! How are these families supposed to help their children thrive?To help alleviate #DiaperNeed, Huggies has been the founding sponsor of the National Diaper Bank Network since 2011, providing support and critical donations including more than 200 million diapers and baby wipes to families in need through its No Baby Unhugged program.
This year, as part of No Baby Unhugged, Huggies and Meijer have made it so simple to give back in a very big way. If you purchase a pack of Huggies from Meijer now through December 23, Huggies and Meijer will donate a day’s worth of diapers plus Meijer will donate $1 to the National Diaper Bank Network!Since we already frequently purchase and use both Huggies Snug & Dry (they offer up to 12 hours of protection) and Huggies Little Movers (perfect for active babies) diapers, making a conscious effort to purchase our diapers from Meijer was a no-brainer this holiday season. I invite you too to give back to the little ones this Christmas and buy your Huggies at Meijer!
