Don’t be a stinker and keep your drive a secret! Tell us about your efforts and share the story with pictures. Email them to photo@whnt.com or post to social media with the hashtag #19Diaper.

STEPS TO HOST A DIAPER SHOWER:

1) If you’re doing it at work get permission from your boss first! Share the information with your coworkers. Download your customizable poster.

2) Make sure you have collection box or boxes set out for donations! It’s best when they’re decorated with bright colors.

3) Set goals! Let your friends or coworkers know how the drive’s going. Take pictures and issue challenges.

4) Drop off your donations at The Great Diaper Drive Blitz Drive September 11 anytime between 5:00AM and 6:30PM at any of our drive locations. (link)

DIAPER CHALLENGES

-Can you collect your boss/teacher/coach’s weight in diapers?
-Collect your height in diapers
-Fill the copier room, a coworker’s workspace, or the minivan with diapers
-Promise to wear a diaper (preferably clean) on your head if your coworkers, students, friends, neighbors collect X amount of diapers.

COLLECTION IDEAS

Host a bake sale with diaper-themed baked goods.   Or, instead of a lemonade stand, set up a changing table stand and collect diapers from your neighbors.

USE SOCIAL MEDIA

Change your profile and cover photo to something diaper related. We’ve created a Facebook cover photo you can download.  Here is another image you can share.
