#nurses4diaperneed

Posted By Jessica K. Hazboun, Tuesday, January 29, 2019

 

We would like to give a big shout out to @awhonn nurse, Joan Culver who has hosted a @healthymomandbaby Diaper Drive for the past two years. This past year, Joan and her team were able to raise 20,000 diapers for the families with diaper need in Indiana! Her event serves as both a diaper drive and an educational event about diaper need. Traveling to local Kiwanis, Rotary luncheons, church events, and reaching out on social media her team has truly helped to spread awareness of diaper need to their community. Thank you for all you do! #nurses4diaperneed

September Diaper Drive Update

Posted By Jessica K. Hazboun, Monday, September 10, 2018

 

Happy Monday! 

Just a few things I wanted to share with everyone:

  1. The Chapter Challenge that ends on the last day of National Diaper Need Awareness Week, September 24th-30th. If you have hosted a diaper drive any time this past year, remember to record your drive on diaperdrive.org. Any diapers raised will be added to your chapter tally. The chapter/section that has raised the most diapers will win the GRAND PRIZE of an AWHONN hosted Pizza Party + Goodie Box filled with pins, totes, and lanyards for the ENTIRE chapter.
  2. There is no “right” way to hold a diaper drive, as long as you are helping to raise awareness of the severity of diaper need. Your drives can be held at your local church, your next meeting, your hospital, a facility, or anywhere in your community and the diapers raised can be donated to ANY community organization that is able to distribute diapers to those with diaper need. 

 

I have FULL confidence that we can make the difference that we as professionals nurses are SO capable of. Contact me at jhazboun@awhonn.org today!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jessica Hazboun, I am your 2018 Healthy Mom&Baby Diaper Drive Consultant. I just wanted to reach out and and formally introduce myself, if I have not had the pleasure of meeting you before, and extend a helping hand in getting your 2018 diaper drives started. Thank you so much for all the amazing drives that have been held thus far. You have no idea how much you have impacted those families in need.

 

If you have not already done so, feel free to check out our video and share it to your fellow nurses, members in your community, on your social media, or even to your friends. An easy way to support diaper need is through raising awareness.

 

If you have already held a diaper drive, I would love for you to send me your stories and any photos you may have to share with our diaper drive community. 

 

Stay tuned for our August section and chapter challenges! Feel free to contact me with any questions, if you need support, or to just say hi. I look forward to working with you!

Do you collect diapers, clothes, infant care items to share with families in your facility?

Posted By Carolyn D. Cockey, Thursday, May 24, 2018

 

So many of our wonderful AWHONN members collect diapers, wipes, car seats, clothes, food, etc., for families in need in their hospitals and facilities.

 

We were touched by this story of a nurse doing the same in the Emergency Room where she works:

 

https://www.rileychildrens.org/connections/er-nurse-fills-closet-with-clothes-for-patients-to-wear-home

 

We would like to SHARE YOUR STORIES and pictures of how you collect and share items with families in need.

 

Would you be willing to send your story and pictures of where/how you store these items so that we can share on the AWHONN blog and in other ways?

 

NURSES ROCK and we want to inspire others with your actions!

 

Please email Healthy Mom&Baby Editor Carolyn Cockey at carolyndc@awhonn.org with your stories and images--we can't wait to celebrate and help what you're doing inspire others to the same!!!!

Posted By Carolyn D. Cockey, Friday, March 23, 2018

AWHONN is seeking an AWHONN nurse member to work on a consulting basis from April through December this year, and in subsequent years as funding permits, with our Healthy Mom&Baby Wipe Out Diaper Need drive.

 

Responsibilities:

  1. Equip and support AWHONN’s sections and chapters as they start, hold and continue diaper drives as some hold them more than once
  2. Equip and support AWHONN members in their at-work or individual efforts to collect and donate diapers from drives in their own communities
  3. Ensure results of all nurse-led drives are recorded at DiaperDrive.org
  4. Participate/recruit participants for Facebook Live and Instagram Live chats, especially in May and during the national “Diaper Need Awareness Week,” which is September 30—October 6 (training provided, as needed)

  • Role is funded for 2018, funding may be available in future years
  • Role is conducted on nurse’s own time, own location
