Saving Babies One Diaper at a Time

Since 2017, Gifts from Liam has made closing the diaper gap central to our day-to-day operations. Why? Because the same families impacted by diaper need are also those who lack access to services and education to keep their babies safe. In 2021, we added cloth diaper assistance in partnership with Permanent Diaper Relief. Through collaboration with community organizations throughout Chicagoland, over 200,000 diapers, and other baby supplies have been distributed. Let’s keep climbing those numbers together!

About the Diaper Gap

1 in 2 families can’t afford enough diapers for their babies and are forced to choose between food or diapers.

Nearly 8% of families are forced to dry out and reuse dirty diapers, leading to health problems.

Low income families pay two times as much for diapers because they can’t afford to buy in bulk.

Daycares require 6-8 diapers per day. If parents can’t afford diapers, they can’t go to work.
