Parties for a Purpose: Asking for Donations Instead of Gifts This Holiday Season

Many of us, our kids included, have plenty and want for not.  My toddler, unbeknownst to him, will be asking for diapers and donations instead of gifts for his birthday.  We are coming up on holiday season and it is a great time to harness the season of giving for organizations that are important to you and the community. Most people are happy to give if they know about a cause and how they can help.  These moments of education are critical in raising awareness for our cause. Diaper need is considered a 'silent crisis' because most people haven't heard of it.  Let's educate our friends and family by making the Austin Diaper Bank a benefactor of your celebrations:

1. Office Holiday Parties- Maybe entry "fee" is one pack of diapers. Challenge your department to raise more diapers/dollars than the other department.
2. Personal Holiday Giving Campaigns/ Diaper Drives - We would love to be adopted this year as your cause!
3. Birthday parties where donations/diapers are brought instead of presents.
4. Baby showers where Austin Diaper Bank gets diapers as well as the new bundle of joy.
5. "Treat" ADB with diapers from your Halloween party.
6. Giving a donation in honor of someone for a birthday or holiday.

We would love to hear from you and your plans for including Austin Diaper Bank in your charitable giving this year. Something like 70% of donations for the year are done between October and December.  Let us know how we can help!
