May 2018

Be the CHANGE your community needs! Making a Difference made for e a fantastic Mother’s Day.

Northeast Doulas would like to THANK everyone who had a hand in making our event unforgettable. The 6th Annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive 5K and Community FUN Day was an incredible success. We are thrilled to announce that it will go down in history as a record-breaking event, raising over 30,000 Diapers for the Westchester Diaper Bank.

Although the day began with fear of rain, bright smiles of families, friends, vendors and sponsors scared away the looming clouds. 

A special Shout out, and, thank you to the Taconic Roadrunners who registered 200 Plus female runners for the 5K. It was absolutely inspirational to watch so many generations of women, from all walks of life running together in FDR Park for such a powerful cause.  

We know that our event being on Mother’s Day added even more specialness to the charity experience. Every runner, and all of the families in attendance were beyond generous with their diaper donations. We are so grateful to the community members who filled our local drop off boxes at businesses around Westchester County.

Thank you to our fabulous vendors, for bringing your beautiful wares to sell. Thank you to all of the local businesses who set up to inform our community about the important services they provide to us. Extra special thanks goes out to our amazing bouncy house operator, hysterical clown, talented...Read more

Screaming tears of discomfort echo through your hallway. Your baby’s crying because they are sitting in their own mess. You wipe them down, but their bottom is bright red, blistered, sore, raw, the rash has spread from front to back, thigh to thigh. Will it ever go away?

You can see them wincing in pain. Your heart is breaking. You powder them again, but you know it will not do much to ease the pain, they will make again once they eat, and you are tightly rationing diapers. If they wet themselves again tonight you do not have a diaper to change them into. You have one package to last you all week. It is Tuesday and 10 diapers remain. You will not have the money for more until Friday’s pay check clears. How did this happen? How could you not be able to change your baby?

When you found out you were pregnant you were filled with so much love and happiness. You have always imagined having a family. You have dreamed your whole life of all you will do for your child. All they will have. No matter what, you will give them the world. How could the world not include clean diapers?

Your partner and you work 4 jobs between you. The money coming in leaves before it hits your account. It seems impossible to keep up. Rent is expensive, even though you are getting help from a government program. Food stamps and WIC help with the necessities, it’s a modest table but everyone is full.

Even though you are working 16 hours a...Read more

This Sunday, May 13th is less than a week away! We are so excited to welcome our community to support The Westchester Diaper Bank with our 6th Annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive 5K and Family Fun Day at FDR Park.

Registration is still open for our Mothers’ Day ladies only 5K.

We also invite everyone to participate in a two-mile fun run directly following the race.  

A full morning of fun activities is scheduled from 8 AM to 12 PM.

Remember the purpose of our event is to RAISE DIAPERS. Northeast Doulas are challenging the community to help reach their goal of 30,000 diapers. Online diaper donations can be made through our Amazon Wish List.  All attendees are encouraged to bring diapers of...Read more
