Did you know:
* 1 in 3 families report a need for diapers
* On average an adequate supply of diapers cost $100 a month
* There is no government assistance that provides diapers for families in need
* An inadequate supply of diapers has been linked to an increase in abuse and infanticide
Your help can save lives!
