This past weekend was Mother’s Day and I spend my Saturday volunteering on behalf of Women’s Drop In Center assisting a organization called Help A Mother Out (HAMO). Help A Mother Out held their annual tea over at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel (which is gorgeous but that is another post later on).
Help A Mother Out is a non profit based in the SF Bay Area and the only thing that they do is collect diapers and give them out to their community partners. Started back in 2009, Help A Mother Out has given out over 1 million diapers.
Hosted by Kristen Sze, one of our local news anchors, this event showcased the plight of some parents to provide diapers to their children. And the stats are bothersome. Some 22% of all children under five years old in the U.S. live in poverty, and one of every three families struggle to afford diapers. What really got to me is when Lisa mentioned that she get calls from across the state from government agencies asking for assistance (The government? Uhmmm how come they don’t already have a plan to help folks?!? a rhetorical question but cmon!)
And just think Executive Director Lisa Truong came up with the idea of starting this organization after watching a Oprah show. Yeah Oprah.
Here’s a video, shown at the event, that has some of the clients that they have assisted and how the need for diapers is so urgent.
And I hope all mothers, god mothers, mothers in waiting and mothers of the community enjoyed their Mothers Day.
