As a supporter of Jake’s Diapers, you have personally helped enable families impacted by wildfires rise from the ashes and raise healthy children, overcoming their need to choose between food, shelter, or diapers.
“We lost our home. We lost our dog. We both worked in a vineyard that burned so we lost our jobs too.” – Tubbs Wildfire Survivor
Now, more than six months after the Tubbs fire, families are still struggling. For families who worked in vineyards, their jobs are gone. These families, once self-sufficient, have now found themselves living in poverty, making devastatingly difficult choices. While they are still struggling, there is hope. These families have enough diapers to keep their babies clean, dry, and healthy while they focus on rebuilding.
This is all possible because of partnerships with donors like you and other charitable organizations that empower our cause. As you may already know, GlobalGiving allows nonprofits like Jake's Diapers to reach a wider audience and earn more dollars through its generous platform challenges, thus helping more babies in desperate situations. In one week, we have a big opportunity to continue maximizing that impact and help more babies impacted by the wildfires.
We ask that if you wish to provide a gift to Jake's Diapers, please do so on Wednesday, July 18 starting at 9 AM EST. On this Bonus Day, GlobalGiving will match your donation! It’s also important to donate as soon as possible on this day to capitalize on the matching funds before they run out. Last year, the funds ran out in the first half hour!!
Since 2002, the GlobalGiving platform raised $337 million dollars for organizations doing good worldwide. The platform offers tools and trainings to help organizations like ours grow their expertise in fundraising and driving an impact. As GlobalGiving says, “Together we are building a global movement for social progress.”
It’s working for us here at Jake’s Diapers, too. GlobalGiving propelled our growth and impact significantly. Last year we were honored to make GlobalGiving’s top 10 nonprofits committed to impact.
We’re on a mission to help meet the diapering needs of babies impacted by wildfires and support caregivers worldwide in raising healthy children. Any donation, no matter the size, adds up to big change. After all, the power of crowdfunding is in the crowd.
Thanks for helping babies!
