Sarah Couch's Fundraiser:

Clean Bums for Babies

THE STORY:

Our baby.....poops.....I know it's hard to believe but she does. In fact, we change her diaper 8-10 times a day, and boy are they full! Now, what I cannot imagine is not having a clean diaper to put on her cute little bum. Which by the way is actually very, very cute. But, it breaks my heart to think that if our situation were different, we might not have any option but to make her sit in a soiled diaper -crying and in pain.

Because diapers are expensive, and are not covered by WIC or Food Stamps, 1/3 of US families struggle to provide diapers for their babies. :( This means they are forced to have their kids sit in doo-doo, they may try to wash out disposable diapers to reuse them, or may try to craft diapers out of things like paper towels and plastic bags. Can you imagine?!!?!

Baby Kayce, who by the way says hello to you and your families, believes all babies deserve clean bums despite their families economic situation! So in her honor, we are raising support for WestSide Baby's Diaper Bank Program. Through this program 18,000+ local children are provided diapers to keep their bums clean and healthy each year!

So, help us give kids a fresh start to life and help us cover more bums!

Thank you for your support,
Sarah, Joe, and Kayce!


In case you wanted to read more, here are some interesting tid-bits.

Dirty diapers are poopie, they:
-cause diaper rash and other medical issues
-are painful to sit in and make babies cry = an increased likeliness to be subject to abuse by already stressed care takers
-can be so painfully distracting that the baby's cognitive development can be delayed

Disposable diapers:
-are among the top shop lifted items in King County...parents are that desperate and need your help!
-are required at daycare centers, so if you think "those parents" should get a job and support their own kids...well guess what, they can't go to work, or school, if they can't supply daycare with the necessary diapers

-can cost $115+ per month leading parens to choose betwwen these or paying bills or buying food
-are often the only option as most low-income families do not have a washer and dryer in their house cloth diapers are not allowed in laundry mats


22 MILLION DIAPERS are needed to cover little bottoms just in King County each year. You can help make a difference, yes, you...who did you think we were talking to!?!?!
