This post has been sponsored by Huggies. I received diapers and wipes to donate, but all opinions here are my own.
This holiday season I’m again highlighting the issue of diaper need, both in Illinois and nationally. Just a few quick facts:
- In Illinois alone, 16% of children under age 18 are infants and toddlers — and 21% live in families earning less than 100% of FPL (Federal Poverty Level).
- In Illinois, 65% of working mothers have infants at home — and child care facilities require that you provide diapers for your child.
- In Illinois, the cost of infant care as a percentage of income in two parent households is 15% — and in single parent households, 54%.
The average monthly supply of diapers costs approximately $80, and diaper banks help fill the gap. Illinois has 15 NDBN (National Diaper Bank Network) diaper banks that distribute over 1 million diapers annually to help eliminate diaper need.
This is the fourth year that Meijer and Huggies have partnered to help you give back to help families in diaper need during the holiday season. For every pack of Huggies purchased at Meijer through January 2, 2017, Meijer will donate $1.00 and Huggies will donate a day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper bank to help families with babies throughout the Midwest. You can also donate your Huggies Rewards points to help out further.
And I also have a little Huggies giveaway for you! Even if you don’t have a little one at home, enter below for your chance to win and donate these to an organization or family in need of diapers this holiday season.
