Huggies for a MONTH {Giveaway}

Did you know that it is National Diaper Week?  Thanks to Huggies, I had the chance this week to deliver Huggies diapers to a local diaper bank.

Please read to the end of this post to learn how you can win a month's supply of diapers for yourself AND a diaper bank!

Just as there is a need for food banks to provide individuals and families with food, diaper banks are a way for families to get disposable diapers if they have little ones in diapers.  I went to the Food Bank of Delaware to donate the packages of Huggies that were sent to me.  This food bank also works to provide diapers to those in need.  This food bank is busy serving the community in various ways, and I found the drop off to be very fast.  It felt good to know that I was helping families to keep diapers on their little ones!  (For those of you who read frequently, you likely know I live in Pennsylvania.  The Food Bank of Delaware was still my first choice for delivering since my small town does not have one!  I am grateful to know that it is not only large cities that provide diaper banks, but also medium-sized towns!)
With three children I know the cost of diapers.  Like many families, we do choose to use disposable diapers.  We typically buy in bulk and use coupons to make it a bit more affordable.

For those in financial difficulties, some might wonder why cloth diapers are not used.  I can quickly think of two reasons. 1) Large initial investment.  2) Frequent laundering.  Disposable diapers are often needed in day care situations, as well.  A Huggies survey found that 1 in 3 moms struggle with providing diapers to their babies.

I appreciate Huggies' commitment to babies.  Their founding sponsorship of the National Diaper Bank Network through Every Little Bottom.  Since 2010, Huggies Every Little Bottom has donated more than 80 million diapers to those in need.

You can help moms with diaper needs by donating diapers, of course.  Some other ways to help are to visit Huggies.com/tester.  While there, parents can play games and participate in challenges.  For every prize received, Huggies will donate a diaper to a baby in need.  Huggies Rewards members can donate their points to support a baby in need of diapers.

Would you like to win a month's supply of Huggies for yourself?  Would you also like to donate Huggies to your local diaper bank?

  1. SO im your first commenter! and i have 21 month old twins. One with special needs that has to go to a special school and they require more diapers than i normally buy so this would be a HUGE help. ONE thing i learned on the huggies website was that its HARD to win one of their giveaways. I have a ton of points and cant seem to win any of their giveaways.
    BONUS: I also learned that they recently changed their product and its extra soft and extra absorbent! But i learned that at home... :)
