Today Quidsi, Inc., owner and operator of Diapers.com, announced the launch of an online donation center to send essential supplies to families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Their new feature provides an incredibly fast way for us to help storm-ravaged families in the wake of the damage. Diapers.com has already begun to help families in need by providing 60,000 diapers, 8,000 bottles of baby formula, and 3,000 bowls of pet food through nonprofit partners like the American Red Cross and the Jersey City Humane Society and hopes that we will join in helping support our neighbors on the East Coast.
By clicking on www.diapers.com/sandy, visitors to the site can make an “essentials” donation valued at $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, and $500. You can also select whether to send specific essentials like diapers, baby food, formula, and clothing from Diapers.com; pet essentials like food and cat litter from Wag.com; or household essentials like cleaning supplies and batteries from Soap.com and Casa.com.
Diapers.com’s recovery efforts have been focused on what they do best: delivering the essentials that people need, where and when they need them.
“The Hurricane Sandy disaster is particularly close to our hearts,” said cofounders Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, both New Jersey natives. “Many of our employees live in communities that remain impacted by the storm. We are grateful for their safety, but know there are many others still desperately in need of help.”
Diapers.com is working directly with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and government agencies to quickly get these essentials to the families who need them most and to allow the greatest flexibility to the donor. I am grateful for heat coming from my vents, lights that come on at the flick of a switch and water flowing from my faucet. Our East Coast neighbors have lost so much. Let's rise to the occasion and help our neighbors. Please donate at www.diapers.com/sandy .
