Kyleigh’s Gift Diaper Drive, 2015

 

Last year, we celebrated Kyleigh’s 3rd birthday by hosting a Diaper Drive. It was such a great success, that we decided to do it again this year to celebrate her 4th birthday. Over 7,000 diapers were donated last year…from family, friends and many people we have never met. We came home to find boxes of diapers on our front porch from neighbors, local friends and the UPS man. The furthest package that we’re aware of came all the way from California! Many donated anonymously, but we also received several notes tucked away in the boxes wishing Kyleigh a happy birthday in heaven.

Here is information on this years Diaper Drive:

In honor of Kyleigh’s 4th Birthday, we are hosting a Diaper Drive to benefit HappyBottoms.org. The diaper drive will begin on Tuesday, April 5, Kyleigh’s birthday, and will end on Saturday, April 23.

One in five Kansas City area children lives in poverty. Diapers remain an area of need for those struggling to provide for their children. Help us collect diapers of all sizes, from newborn to Pull-Ups! All diapers will be donated to HappyBottoms, a local diaper bank.

How can you donate? Here are three ways:

1) Drop off diapers at our house. If we are not home, please leave them on the front porch. If you do not know where we live, please refer to option #2 or #3.

2) Order diapers from the Kyleigh’s Gift Amazon Wish List. Diapers will be shipped directly to our house when you choose the Kyleigh’s Gift shipping address. You can access the wish list here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/?ie=UTF8&cid=A3FCVKXC08OWGR

3) Drop off diapers at Liberty Hospital. A drop off area will be available inside the front hospital entrance by the information desk.

Thank you for helping us remember our baby girl on her 4th Birthday!
