The Nappy Collective: October 2018
- Fri Oct 12 - Fri Oct 26 2018
On Friday 12 October, The Nappy Collective will launch its 12th nappy drive, a two-week campaign that calls on babies and parents across Australia to donate leftover, unused, disposable nappies providing vital support to vulnerable families.
Every day, hundreds of families struggle to provide necessities such as nappies for their children. The simple act of donating leftover, unused disposable nappies can have a huge impact on families in desperate circumstances, including mothers fleeing family violence, asylum seekers, refugees, and families struggling with homelessness, mental illness, drug abuse, and extreme financial hardship.
Nappies are a basic essential child care need. A newborn goes through 10 to 12 nappies a day, and a toddler six to eight. When families are stretched to even put food on the table, they simply can’t change their child’s nappy this often, which can cause health issues for their child and themselves.
The Nappy Collective is the only organisation in Australia focused exclusively on helping families with their nappy needs – a product outside most government funding regulations.
Where: Across Sydney and NSW
When: Friday 12 October - Friday 26 October 2018
Cost: Nappies must be unused and disposable; single nappy donations are welcome (no handful is too small).
