Do you have leftover unused disposable nappies that your bub has outgrown? Someone out there needs them. Click through to find out how your unwanted nappies can change lives with The Nappy Collective.
It happens to all of us: you’ve stocked up on nappies and then your baby goes up a size before the pack is finished. The result is a stash of unused disposable nappies destined to gather dust or hit the landfill. The solution is The Nappy Collective, a charity group that collects all those unwanted nappies and redistributes them to families in need.
Doing good since 2013, we have talked about The Nappy Collective before and once again it is time for their bi-annual collection. This time it coincides with Mother’s Day and what a wonderful gift to give a mum-in-need a helping hand.
From 1 to 15 May 2015, The Nappy Collective will be gathering your unused and unwanted nappies at collection points around Australia. There are designated collection points in every major city and many rural areas including Newcastle, Albury, Bendigo and Geelong. Check out The Nappy Collective website to find a collection point near you.
It is a sad truth that mothers fleeing family violence often struggle to provide for their young children. This can mean nappies are changed less often or other basic essentials are given up in order to pay for nappies. But we don’t have to let this happen.
By donating your unused disposable nappies you can help make a big difference in the lives of struggling Australian families. Healthier babies and happier mums, all with the support of our collective community. Now isn’t that what we all want this Mother’s Day?
