Hi MOTH members. We seem to have experienced some kind of glitch on the MOTH Yahoo list serve and people have not been receiving emails. Please be assured no one has been dropped from the MOTH list serve. Things seem to be back up and running this morning but if you are not receiving emails try logging into the the YahooGroups page. Hopefully this was a one time issue that has been resolved. If you sent an email to the group and don't see it try resending it today. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Greater DC Diaper Bank

Hi friends! We're getting lots of questions on how to help families - and I know we're all looking for ways to help. please read this and share it widely!!!


Pretty please. If you want to help please SEND MONEY. Send what you would have spent to mail something and donate that item to a local organization. The organizations on the ground in Harvey's path know exactly what is needed and can leverage corporate and wholesale relationships to get items cheaper than you ever could.

For example, at DC Diaper Bank I can use corporate and wholesale connections to get a diaper for around $0.025 per diaper; at Costco you will pay $0.17 per diaper - do the math and it adds up quickly!! If you are thinking of giving to the Texas Diaper Bank or Austin Diaper Bank (and they are both amazing organizations that we love run by incredible EDs) they need dollars to pay for trucking wholesale diapers and extra staff. They will need this for a long while.

Additionally, when you send them items they have to spend precious time and staff power sorting through all they are sent. Donating dollars, which are also tax deductible for you, mean they can get folks exactly what they need quickly!!

Happy to delve further into this issue if folks have questions. Thanks!
