We encourage you to consider – if babies could talk, they might say one of two things: ‘I’m hungry!’ or ‘Change me!’ Sometimes, it’s simple to understand what an infant needs and how you can help. Become an advocate for babies by collecting diapers from your friends, school and community and join us in giving babies a voice! Making a difference can be as simple as gifting diapers. #GiveBabiesAVoice

CAMPAIGN UPDATE:

We did it!
Together, we collected over 311,000 diapers (& counting)!
Thank you for being part of Stuff the Bus 2018

Over 70 individuals, businesses and community groups hosted diaper drives this summer. We want to give a shout-out to our top diaper drivers:

Top Individual: Angela Wallis with 17,001 diapers!

Top Business: HomeStreet Bank with 3,361 diapers!

Top School: St Joseph School with 18,439 diapers!

Top Daycare: Alki Beach Academy/La Maison Alki with 11,038 diapers!

In 2017, we gave out 1.4 million diapers, and this year, we anticipate the need will grow. Your time, donations, and diapers are appreciated and meaningful. For families who receive items from WestSide Baby, a simple bundle of diapers means precious and limited resources can go towards other necessary costs, such as food or medical care.

Thank you for giving babies a voice this summer.

Thank you!

Thank you to all those who hosted diapers drives, sent diapers, gave your time and money, or partied with us at the Stuff the Bus BASH! Check back here on July 31st for some wonderful photos from this summer’s diaper drive, outreach events, parades, BASH, and more!


Why Stuff the Bus?

A newborn needs up to 14 diapers a day which can average $100/month. In fact, 1 in 3 families struggle to afford diapers and suffer from diaper need, a lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy. Stuff the Bus is WestSide Baby’s largest annual outreach event and Seattle’s largest diaper drive. Our network of diaper “drivers” help us by hosting drives to collect diapers this summer to stuff the WestSide Baby bus with as many diapers possible.
