When diapers run out...
"Thank you for not forgetting us."

DIAPERS - THE OVERLOOKED ESSENTIAL
Diapers need is a part of the childhood poverty profile no one talks about. We call it “the overlooked essential”.
Reusing or recycling diapers beyond capacity... it's a hard choice that 1 in 3 mothers are having to consider because of a limited diaper supply. For low-income families with an infant or toddler, diaper costs can run as high as transportation costs, often forcing the household to "stretch" diapers beyond capacity.
Diapers. They do make a difference.
So far in 2019, ilooklikeLOVE has distributed over 93,000 diapers to 980 Dallas families through our emergency assistance for homeless families and domestic violence victims, disaster recovery for those impacted by the Dallas tornadoes, and our ongoing signature “Diaper Day” events. Your support helps to ensure every baby in Dallas has a clean diaper. Our children are worth it.
#GIVINGTUESDAY GOAL: $2500
YEAR-END CAMPAIGN GOAL: $12,500
Donations made to ilooklikeOVE support the cost of resources (inventory, supplies), transportation (deliveries and rentals) and staff support so diapers and other essentials are available to families who need them.
