Shower of Hope Oklahoma Diaper Distribution For Oklahoma Families

 

 
After the May 19th and May 20th Oklahoma tornadoes and storms, I desired to help the families affected, especially after my husband was in the May 20th Moore, Oklahoma tornado.
 
My charitable group, Shower of Hope Oklahoma, hosted a Diaper Drive for families who were affected by those Oklahoma tornadoes.  I endeavored to collect cloth diapers, disposable diapers, wipes, diaper creams and other baby and toddler items (pacifiers, teethers, baby food, toddler snacks, infant formula).
 
From May 21st - June 14th, Shower of Hope Oklahoma received donations from individuals, families and wonderful companies from all across the United States.  My desire was to bless those families who were in need.  It may have been a simple box of diapers and wipes, but to someone who lost everything, this care package would be the glimmer of hope for them in knowing things would get better and that were many others in Oklahoma and beyond who were thinking and praying for them. 
 
June 15th was Diaper Distribution Day at The Changing Table in Oklahoma City.  We had a wonderful distribution and had 8,000+ diapers and 5,000+ wipes to distribute to families affected by the May 2013 Oklahoma storms and tornadoes.  We also helped families with baby food, infant formula, breastfeeding essentials for mommas, baby care items, toys and clothes.  As a Christian, it was a huge blessing to me to see so many families being helped.  My desire is to always be His hands and feet on earth and the distribution day was wonderful.
 
I want to give special thanks to all of the individuals and families who helped make this charitable endeavor such a huge success.  Huge thanks to Kelly Wels, Julie from Cloth Diaper Geek and the entire Green Team Enterprises Distribution staff for helping spread the word and for their generous cloth diaper donation!  Also, thanks to Balm Baby, Snappi, MunchkinFat Bottom BabiesKickSprout, Green CheeksEarth Mama Angel Baby, Rockin' Green Soap, Bumkins Finer Baby Products, Wish Baby Registry and Gifts, Joovy, Graco Children's Products, Baby Steals and Hygeia Breastfeeding for their generous donations

  1. So important and I like how you took charge to help others in your area. Everyone in their community can do a lot - whether with others or not - and if more people took an interest in others than in their own the world would be better, thanks!
