A happy baby is only one nappy away
A WANGARATTA business will participate in an initiative that calls on babies and parents across Australia to donate leftover, unused, disposable nappies, providing vital support to vulnerable families.
This Friday The Nappy Collective will launch its twelfth nappy drive, a two-week campaign and Salts of the Earth Wangaratta will be an official drop point for donated nappies that are sent to families in need.
Nappies are a basic essential child care need and a newborn goes through 10 to 12 nappies a day, and a toddler six to eight.
When families are stretched to even put food on the table, they simply can’t change their child’s nappy this often, which can cause health issues for their child and themselves.
The Nappy Collective is the only organisation in Australia focused exclusively on helping families with their nappy needs, a product outside most government funding regulations.
Salts of the Earth business proprietor and salt therapist Colleen Balfour is pleased to be participating in the initiative and hopes the local community will help support The Nappy Collective.
“We’re excited to have our customers, employees and wider community taking part in this initiative to help local families in need,” she said.
The October Nappy Collective will run from October 12 to 26, and encourages parents and families across Australia to join The Collective and help families in their most vulnerable moments.
Nappies can be dropped at Salts of the Earth Wangaratta located at Shop 2/103 Murphy Street.
NAPPY HAPPY: Salts of the Earth centre operator Margy Ressom wants you to donate unused, disposable nappies for The Nappy Collective initiative.
