How You Can Amplify Austin Diaper Bank 2016! #AmplifyATX

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!
Our goal for Amplify Austin in 2016 is to grow the bank by raising enough money ($12,000) to get a warehouse and outfit it with shelving. If we do, we would have enough room to safely store more diapers, allow more volunteers to work and double the number of people we serve. It's a bargain when you think that nearly 4,000 more people in Central Texas can get the help they desperately need. We ask members in the community who can afford to give: give generously to end a silent crisis that is utterly preventable with just a bit of money and effort. Diaper need in Austin can be crushed with kindness. 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!
