I know some of you mothers will agree with me on this but lately, my shopping runs have turned into a little bit of me time. It’s become somewhat of time period where I can leisurely go and explore new stores and learn new routes in my city (Columbus, OH). I was at Meijer just the other day for a quick shopping run and decided to pick up some diapers for my now almost 5 month old. We’re currently using the Huggies Snug & Dry diapers. I find the wetness indicator perfect as it saves time when trying to determine if it’s that time for a change. I also love that they come in cute Disney designs and go up to size 6. This is perfect since my 2 and a half-year-old is in and out of diapers these days.
I have to be honest, since moving to this city, I’ve only been to my local Meijer about a 2 times. Aside from mastering each aisle and discovering where all of my favorite products lived, I learned a few more details about shopping at Meijer for Huggies products.
For the past couple months, Meijer donated $1 and Huggies donated a day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network for every purchase of Huggies diapers at any of their locations. As a result of shopper’s purchases, Huggies and Meijer were able to donate 400,000 diapers and $10,000 to the National Diaper Bank. The donation was presented at an event this week hosted at the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank.
After learning about this donation to the National Diaper Bank Network, I wanted to learn more about the organization. Here is what I learned:
Since 2011, the No Baby Unhugged program by Huggies has donated over 200 million diapers and baby wipes to the National Diaper Bank Network. Some of these donations came at the most critical times including crisis’ around the country.
Did you know that 36% of US families are struggling with diaper need today in America? Neither did I.
A study released last September looked to better understand the challenges families in diaper need face. Because let's face it, diapers are essential for keeping a child clean, dry and healthy.
I’m a firm believer that with so much going on in the world today, we all need to give back in one way or another. As a mother, nothing hurts me more than to witness a child in need. Whether it is the most basic necessities or something more serious, we should be doing our best to help any child in need. That’s why I’ve not only started purchasing all of my children’s diaper products at Meijer, but I’ve also signed up for the Huggies Rewards points. This way, I can donate any accumulated points to a child in need of diapers. Here are a few ways you can get involved in this initiative:
Sign up for the Huggies Rewards app and collect points with each purchase that can be donated.
Host a diaper drive with your fellow mommies.
Donate or volunteer at your local diaper bank.
