Today I want to take a moment and talk about something that I’m thankful for. I am thankful that I have had access to diapers and healthcare for my boys since they were born. I know this sounds crazy but in 1998 more than two million children died from diseases such as dysentery, cholera, typhus fever and typhoid that were caused by fecal matter and I believe our generation can stop these senseless deaths from happening.
This past Friday my husband and I had the opportunity to attend a charity event called The Change One Event. The night was to highlight a local nonprofit called DriButts and their mission is to provide two reusable diapers and education to families on the importance of using diapers to stop the spread of disease.
The diapers were designed and developed by DriButts with warm climates in mind where there is no electricity or running water. Each diaper fights against bacteria and when cleaned properly they will last over two years.
So what can you do to help? That is a great question and one is spread the word about DriButts. They were recently featured on Fox News Health but we still need to spread the word so go like them on Facebook and tell your friends about DriButts. If you want to do more then please consider giving. For as little as $30 you are saving a family by providing them with two diapers.
I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Wahl, the guy behind DriButts, right after moving to Atlanta and I can tell you that this is his passion and I believe it’s important for us to help him change the world.
