A Cause.

I don't do causes.

Bandwagons - not my thing.

I have fallen off a wagon or two in my day - you know, I'm a farmgirl, but that's neither here nor there.

I'm not much of a joiner.

I'm always a season or two behind on what the hippest new cause is.

But one day I opened my email and saw a link from Huggies about it's Every Little Bottom campaign.

I read every word on the site.

I Googled it and read every word I could find about it.

In typical me fashion, I walked away from it, thinking "Oh, how sad" but knowing that other things would soon consume my oh-so-important thoughts.


They didn't.

I couldn't stop thinking about what I had read.

About how one in three women in America - America, for goodness sake - struggles with providing enough diapers for her baby.

About how women have to keep their kids home from daycare, thus missing work, because they don't have enough diapers to send.

About how one in twenty - this is someone you or I know, people - clean and reuse dirty diapers because they don't have enough money to buy new ones.

I could not stop thinking about it.

And I still can't.

My kids have, and always have had plenty.  Sometimes I think it's probably too much, but what a problem to have.

I am thankful for that.

And I am thankful that the fine people at Huggies have taken up this cause.

It's really easy to help.

If you use Huggies Diapers, and you are an Enjoy the Ride Rewards Member (and why wouldn't you be?), you can donate points toward the Every Little Bottom Campaign.  Two points = one diaper.  Sixteen points = one baby diapered for one day.  It's easy, and it's free.

I donated all my points, and have been scavenging for new ones.  If you have some stuffed in a drawer somewhere, send 'em to me and I'll even enter them for you.

You can also donate diapers directly through Amazon's Every Little Bottom Wishlist. Not free, of course, but still easy.

The Every Little Bottom website also lets you enter your zip code and shows you local diaper banks you can make a donation to.  And God forbid you are in need yourself, you can also find out where to get help.

So, I guess I now have a cause.

Help me out, would you?  I'm kinda new at this.

This is not a sponsored, or endorsed, or in any way compensated post.  The nice people at Huggies do not know who I am.  Although really they should, considering how many of their diapers and wipes and Pull-Ups I buy in any given month.
