Doulas of Chicago presents the 1st Annual 5k and Diaper Drive!
Did you know:

* 1 in 3 families report a need for diapers
* On average an adequate supply of diapers cost $100 a month
* There is no government assistance that provides diapers for families in need
* An inadequate supply of diapers has been linked to an increase in abuse and infanticide

Your help can save lives!

On May 21st, 2016, Doulas of Chicago (www.doulasofchicago.com), along with 29 other states are participating in this incredible event, bringing national awareness to a problem that too often gets poo pooed. We are teaming up with SWADDLE (www.swaddlediapers.org) to distribute the diapers and donations we collect, but, this is a community effort.

To register to run follow the ticket link above, or visit: http://NoChildWetBehind5k.itsyourrace.com/

If you would like to volunteer we are still looking for help!
Come make a difference with us!

We are looking for:
Committee Heads
Organizing volunteers
Race day volunteers
Runners
Donations
Vendors
...and Sponsors!

If you or a company you work with is looking for a way to make a real impact on families in the Chicago area, this is it.

Costco cares! Thank you for helping make our 5k this Saturday a huge success. I stopped in today and had another incredible experience with their team members, only this time instead of carting home items for my family, I was able to leave with a overloaded cart for Chicago families! Thank you Costco for all you do ❤ #nochildwetbehind #costco #doulasofchicago

Hi I posted a question last week and never got an answer - do you guys accept private diaper donations if I were to bring them there on that day?

I was just wondering if you would take private donations? Like if I wanted to do a diaper drive, would you accept donations from me? Also do you still need volunteers?
Alex Deleon
-- 04/05/2016 15:04
Do you have any info on this?
