Did you know that the summertime sees the fewest diaper donations? Diaper drives are critical to keeping our shelves stocked through to the holidays. Diaper drives can be anything you'd like them to be! At a party, some people just ask guests to bring diapers instead of a gift or food. It can be that easy! Or you can can host a bin (which we can provide) at a workplace, church, school or social club. More information can be found here, including signs and social media posts. We'd love to thank you like our friends at Rose Dental below.

Calling all diapers stashed in cubbies, diaper bags and backpacks! You are needed for babies and toddlers in Central Texas who are in a crisis or impoverished situation. Preschools and Parents' Day Out programs can hold a diaper drive this May for an easy win-win at the end of the school year. Email us at austindiaperbank at gmail dot com and let us know if you need bins or signs etc. We can even do a pick-up when you are done. Here's some more information about hosting a diaper drive. Thank you!

Kicking of SXSW Interactive today, President Obama talked about a range of issues but the most important to us was the minute he spent talking about the importance of diapers. He told the audience about a new collaboration whereby non-profits can save 25% on bulk purchases of diapers so they can distribute them to low-income families. While the government gathered the parties at the table, it's not a government program. Rather, "it's a convergence of diaper makers and logistics companies and internet companies," he said. He concluded by urging Americans to step up, no matter what their interests, passions or concerns were, because the country needs everyone's involvement. Kudos Mr. President and thank you!
Here's the nitty-gritty of the White article that talks about this initiative: https://medium.com/@WhiteHouse/surge-pricing-for-diapers-456df8b59c1f#.m6i3xcom3

President Obama and the White House are pushing a plan for civic engagement and using technology to solve social issues. The President will address these issues today while speaking at SXSW. The example that Obama is holding up is an unlikely collaboration: how retail companies, manufacturers and non-profits are working together to to provide diapers to poor families, a basic need that is often overlooked.
Huggies is donating 22 million diapers nationwide to help address the diaper gap. 10,000 diapers were just donated this morning to Austin Diaper Bank to emphasize its support of fighting diaper need while the President in town. THANK YOU HUGGIES!
Austin Diaper Bank is the only organization of its kind in the greater Austin area. The group has raised over 350,000 diapers for over 5,000 babies and senior citizens in need since incorporation in June 2013. As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, Austin Diaper Bank works collaboratively with the social services agencies in the area to get diapers where they are needed most.

Tuesday March 8th at 6 pm to Wednesday March 9th at 6 pm is Amplify Austin, a 24-hour period of giving to local non-profits. Last year, Amplify Austin raised over $7 million and this year's goal is $9 million, all for great causes that are right here in our area.
Austin Diaper Bank's goal in 2014 was to get its own space and we were able to, due to the great response from the community. During Amplify Austin 2015, we raised $10,000 and were able to double our space to 700 sq. ft. This space has allowed us to gather 210,000 diapers in 2015 alone! We are proud to have served over 45 agencies and over 5,000 people- all with volunteers in our little space. As you can see, it's mighty full!
Fundraise for ADB here with a few social media posts that we provide you and give for Amplify here. You can even schedule your gift now so you don't have to remember later. Thank you for your support!
