Over the last three years, Jake’s Diapers distributed more than 70,000 cloth diapers around the world to babies in need, via partnerships with other nonprofits working to help those youth trapped in poverty situations for a variety of causes.

At $20 retail value, that’s $1.4 million in cloth distributed – phew! That’s not how all our diapers go in and out our doors, though. Thankfully, we’ve cultivated valued relationships with a variety of manufacturers who fuel our supply availability. 

Here’s a list of business partners who’ve helped us in 2019, and how.

  • Cotton Babies, donated 3 pallets of diapers to support hurricane relief efforts.
  • Kanga Care, launched Freshavacado to benefit Jake’s, and gives to us in other ways.
  • AppleCheeks, provided diapers that have been used in our individual aid program.
  • Nicki’s Diapers, a long-standing Jake’s partner launched the Avolove line to help our cause.
  • LalaBye Baby, sends overstock items with a problem (IE cracked button) to Jake’s.
  • Petite Crown, offers a buy-one-give-one model.
  • Lighthouse Kids, started donating to Jake’s in 2018 after falling in love with our mission.


Thank you to your ongoing support as well, your efforts combined with the generous gifts of all our supporters are what makes a difference in the world. #Bethechange

While the waters have receded, the cleanup in the Bahamas has just begun. On Great Abaco Island, there is rubble as far as the eye can see. Samara and her 18 month old son Jalen survived Dorian, huddled together as the roof blew off their home. As the winds blew, the walls shook- and then collapsed. Luckily, they survived. Others weren't so lucky. 

 With such immense devastation, Samara and Jalen are just trying to survive. They've built a small shack out of plywood, and covered it with a blue tarp. They both received medical care from our partners on the ground, and thanks to you, diapers for Jalen. Samara's face lit up when she received the diapers, a burden lifted from her shoulders. Now, Samara & Jalen can focus on other crucial needs. 

Through people like you- people committed to caring for people - over 100 children have received diapers. Thank you for being a beacon of light. 

 

Blessings,

~ Stephanie
