Help A Mother Out With A Mother's Day Gift

There are only ten more days until Mother's Day. Have you thought about what to get her?

Flowers? Candy? Brunch?

These are all nice things for sure. Why not consider a gift that helps moms (and their babies) who really need it most? Please join Help A Mother Out on their Mother's Day Call To Action! Our goal is to raise $30,000 (or more) by Mother's Day. (May 13)

CLICK HERE to donate in your mom's name (or stepmom or grandma or mom-in-law or whoever you call mom). Your money will go a long way to help families in need (and the babies!) get the clean diapers they need.


Can you imagine not having enough diapers for your baby?
Sadly this is the case for more moms than we like to imagine. In 2010, an estimated 22% of California children lived below the FederalPoverty Level (FPL) of $22,113 annually for a family of four with two children.

Diaper NEED Facts
1 in 3 families in the U.S. struggle to buy diapers for their children
Most free/subsidized childcare programs require parents to provide disposable diapers
You cannot use Food stamps or WIC for diapers
For many families in crisis this can mean being forced to choose between buying diapers or other basic needs like shelter, food, and medicine.

Help A Mother Out (HAMO), a non-profit dedicated to providing diapers for homeless and low income families, has launched a national Mother’s Day Call To Action with a goal to raise $30,000 to support the work to get diapers to families in need.
