This #NoBabyUnhuggedCB sponsored post has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. As always, my parenting and donation opinions are my own.
There are few things more daunting than an adult shopping in the baby aisles. Sure we read books (or at least we say we do) to know what to expect. But it will always be the diapers that newbies underestimate. And as parents, it’s diapers that bring on a special awareness. One that lasts (and at least for me), would love to help keep every little bottom covered.
Fast forward 8 years, two butts, endless wipes, and a whole lot of diaper cream later. And I have learned my diapering lesson good! Not only does one underestimate how much goes into parenting…but the unforeseen challenge of dealing with what comes out of it. Like how vital it is on having your favorite disposable diaper stocked at your favorite retailers. And knowing there are places to turn to, for keeping your baby bag stocked!
Because being a parent (or caregiver) is hard enough. So when the kids were little I shopped locally, and used reward programs for the diapers I did purchase. So I’m thrilled to see a new updated app from Huggies Rewards. Not only do they make claiming points easier, but you can donate them as well! And right now, for any Huggies purchase at Meijer stores, Meijer will donate $1.00 to the National Diaper Bank Network*.
Meaning the kids and I ran to Meijer this past week when we needed to pick up Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers and Huggies Natural Care Wipes. The newest little addition expected in our village soon. And these years later, and I am still impressed by the quality that Huggies diapers offer. And when posed to my facebook readers, there wasn’t any question to what they were looking at!
Love the idea of donating diapers but don’t know how to get started? Here are a few easy and fun ways to help:
Contribute to local childcare agencies.
- Women/Children shelters
- Local community centers
- Daycare facilities
Be social and engage your own friends and family to help your community.
- Start a virtual diaper drive.
- Donate Huggies reward points with the new Huggies Rewards app.
- Tape money to diaper packages.
- Donate directly to the National Diaper Bank Network.
- Save money at tax time with gifts of appreciated stock.
Share it forward with a *free* ad on sale sites.
- Craig List Free Ads.
- Facebook Marketplace.
See how easy (and fun) it can be to build up the community around you? Parents shouldn’t ever have to choose between food or diapers. Many do not realize low income and WIC programs don’t include diaper assistance. Meaning diaper donations, are actually one of the easiest ways to make a BIG difference. So when you’re thinking of giving back this holiday season…think Huggies!
With the GentleAbsorb liner and new softer, breathable cover, baby’s skin is protected from messes like never before. Diapers are hypoallergenic and fragrance free. Not to mention the Premie and Newborn size offers a generous cut-out for the umbilical cords. And ya’ll…that yellow wetness indicator line is just a gift from the Gods.
So ya’ll…head over to Meijer today and check out the Huggies Little Snugglers diapers and Natural Care wipes today. Test out the Huggies Rewards app and let me know what you think of it. And if you have any great way to give diapers that I missed, let me know in the comments below!
