Miami Beach, FL, January 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Connect2give (www.Connect2give.com) has been selected by Gifts In Kind International to help them raise 10-million Seventh Generation diapers for families in need. The promotion, called "Changing Diapers, Changing Lives," will invite supporters to text the word BABY to 52000 from their mobile phone to provide a one-time $5 donation. Each $5 donation will help Gifts In Kind purchase, warehouse and ship diapers to its nonprofit network. The mobile fundraising campaign will also be displayed to viewers during upcoming episodes of MTV’s groundbreaking docu-series, “Teen Mom 2,” which airs on Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT.
“On average, most babies go through 8-12 diapers a day in the first few months of their life,” said Cindy Hallberlin, CEO and president of Gifts In Kind International. “This can be a huge struggle for the many families across the country who can’t afford the expense of diapers, forcing them to resort to extreme measures such as using a newspaper as a diaper. Recent studies show it can cost, on average, more than $11,000 a year to raise one child, yet one out of four children live in a home that makes less than $11,000 total in a year. Please join us in our goal to deliver 10 million diapers for families in need with one simple text—text BABY to 52000.”
