Breaking blog rules.


Everyone knows you’re not supposed to talk about work on your blog, and even though I sometimes scoff at the rules that’s one that I’ve followed pretty consistently.  That’s about to change because (as everyone who sees me on a regular basis knows) I just can’t keep quiet about a project that I’m working on: The Lowell Diaper Bank Collaborative.

The Collaborative is a partnership of local organizations who are working to collect and distribute diapers to local families in need.  Diapers are both expensive and not subsidized by any aid programs, leaving a lot of local families in a pinch when working out their budgets. Did you know that infants need up to 12 diapers per day and toddlers need about 8 diapers per day?  That means that an adequate supply of disposable diapers can cost over $100 per month.

The Collaborative is currently collecting diapers and we’ll be distributing in mid-January.  If you are at all interested in helping out, please click that link above or send me an e-mail.  I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled food posting (banana bread) next week.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wow I had no idea that diapers were not part of any aid or that babies used so many!

  2. Also, I’m not one to get crazy about babies, but OMG that baby in the photo is sooooo freakin’ cute!
