Mission Statement

OUR MISSION IS TO SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY AND KEEP ALL THE BABIES OF DETROIT CLEAN, DRY, AND HEALTHY.

THE PROBLEM.

Diaper need is a problem that has been practically overlooked, because other basic needs like food and clothing and housing dominate headlines. Our Detroit federally funded child care centers need help to provide their families and babies a consistent supply of disposable diapers for children in their care. An insufficient supply of diapers is harmful in a plethora of ways to the growth of a child and the well-being of his/her family.

THE SOLUTION.

We plan to be a resource to the struggling families of Detroit, providing them with fresh, clean diapers through fundraising, diaper drives and donations. We do this by partnering with organizations, business/individuals who also want to be a part of the solution.

THE PEOPLE.

We began as a group of teens dedicated to making a positive difference in our community. We work with great partners across the Metro Detroit area. We share our success with our first partners, Development Centers and the Detroit Police Department. Our additional partners can be found in the photo gallery!

ABOUT US

We believe that every baby deserves a fresh start, and that begins with clean diapers. Diaper need is not on most people's radar because when they think of necessities, food, water, and shelter come to mind. Although these are incredibly important as well, diapers are just as critical to babies. Without frequent diaper changes, babies can develop diaper rash. 

Our mission is to collect donations, diapers or monetary, and distribute all diapers through Head Starts in the Metro-Detroit area. 2/3 of families in Detroit have reported experiencing diaper need. We want that to change.
