Thomas is joyous!

Thomas is a delightful 11-year old, who loves being read to. He’s known for his sweet smile that lights his whole body up. He lives with cerebral palsy, and uses a wheelchair to get around.

He was abandoned as a baby. Perhaps his family of origin couldn’t afford healthcare for his special needs. Or, perhaps they didn’t know (or want) to know how to care for him. Sadly, they also may have thought a child with special needs would be a burden or a curse. Or, perhaps he had family members pass away. These are all sad options, and it could be any of these or a different reason all together. No matter the reason, Thomas had a rough start at life as an abandoned special needs orphan.

Fast forward to today, and you'll find Thomas and & his best bud Valor rolling around in their wheelchairs sporting modern cloth diapers, a gift from you. While you may never meet Thomas & Valor on this side of heaven, know that you have made their lives better. By having appropriately sized cloth diapers, their basic hygiene needs can be met sustainably, instead of worrying about the expense of disposable diapers. This cost savings is adding up to a better quality of life, as precious financial resources are now available for personalized muscular therapy. 

I encourage you to reach out to me at stephanie@jakesdiapers.org, with any questions and to learn more ways to get involved with the mission & ministry of Jake's Diapers. 

On behalf of Thomas & Valor, thank you!

Another Life Impacted!

With joy I am able to share with you we are slowly and steadily growing our impact in Green Bay! We're doing a lot of legwork behind the scenes into the feasibility of who and how we can truly impact the root causes of poverty in Greater Green Bay. 

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with a potential partner agency, and giving a cloth diaper kit to another low income, struggling family. For them, cloth diapers will ease the financial challenges of diapering, and provide a complete solution. Most disposable diaper banks provide only a one week per month supply, and we're able to provide a complete kit for just $231. Disposables can cost upwards of $2,000/child, so this is quite a cost savings! 

I look forward to sharing more joys with you soon... Please keep the mission and ministry of Jake's Diapers in your prayers!
