YOU GUYS DID IT. YOU BOUGHT OVER 52,000 DIAPERS! That helps 2000 babies in need! And as promised…THE ENTIRE CAST IN DIAPERS!
One in two families experience diaper need. In Georgia, 47% of low-income families have to choose between diapers and food for their child each month. 25% working parents said they couldn’t use childcare because they didn’t have an adequate supply of diapers.
Support The Bert Show during the Helping Mamas Team Challenge. You can purchase diapers from August 28 – September 27 and diapers will be shipped directly to the Helping Mamas warehouse. Every diaper purchased here will go toward The Bert Show’s goal of providing 4,000 diapers to moms in need.
About Helping Mamas:
Helping Mamas was founded by a social worker who saw a gap in services. There are no public assistance programs to provide for diapers or period products and there was no coordinated effort to collect and distribute essential baby items or period products to women and children in need. Parents were missing work because of diaper need, babies were experiencing severe diaper rash infections and teen girls were missing a week of school every month because of a lack of period products. After watching moms having to use plastic grocery bags for diapers or washout and reuse disposable diapers, founder Jamie Lackey knew something needed to be done. She started Helping Mamas out of her garage by collecting baby supplies from friends and family members and then distributing them to social workers serving women and children. Today, Helping Mamas serves nearly 60,000 children a year and distributes 2 million essential items to the community throughout the state of Georgia and in Knoxville, TN.
