2014 BB diaper drive results
Thank you to every mommy who donated diapers to our 4th Annual Belly Bootcamp Holiday Diaper Drive! This year, with 6 locations across Toronto and so many amazing BB mommies, we knew we were set up to do great things. And you didn't disappoint, mommies! As you can see above, there was hardly any room in the car for me and my turd bun.
1 in 5 Canadian mothers struggles with diaper need, resorting to reusing disposable diapers, skipping diaper changes and going without other household items in order to provide diapers. The stress is unimaginable for most of us.
From mid-December through mid-January we collected diapers from our BB mommies at all locations. The BB trainers tirelessly hauled and stored the diapers. Trunks were filled. Piles were stacked. Husbands were annoyed.
Last week, I took our 2014 diaper haul into the Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto and had the absolute pleasure of watching them weigh our donation, and a chance to chat with the staff about their need for baby items, which is high. As we know all too well, even on a healthy budget diapers and formula, not to mention clothing for growing bodies, can be a financial strain.
We pulled together and many, many little bums will be diapered thanks to the mommies and mommies-to-be of Belly Bootcamp!
Congrats to our mommies and mommies-to-be on donating 380 pounds of diapers to our fellow mommies in need.
I already can’t wait for next year.
