We just heard that 46 boxes of diapers are being shipped to us from EcoMom.com on Monday! They are donating a box of diapers themselves for every box bought on their site between now and New Year’s.
We’d like to thank a few more people who are rock star givers: Nick Soloway, Josh Knox and Daleet Spector to name just a few! We have a long list of generous people who have donated recently and are happy to see that list grow every day.

Vivanista published a great article today highlighting our diaper drive! They are calling us their Cause of the Week: Help A Mother Out!
EcoMom is matching all diaper donations made though their site, so for an eco friendly option, please feel free to donate through EcoMom.com! All diapers are welcome, whether from our registry or any other store you’d like.

And the diapers keep rolling in … UPS had to send two people today to bring up the cartloads of diaper boxes being delivered here. Thank you to everyone who is helping to make a difference!
We’ve had some Rock Star donators the past couple days!! Brian Gustafson, Suvda Myagmar and Christina Ogburn-Chow very generously donated boxes and boxes of diapers. Our very own Medical Lead Dr. Geoff Rutledge donated almost 900 diapers! We have a growing list of many more people who have donated as little as $10, all the up to hundreds of dollars worth of diapers. We love the outpouring of generosity we are seeing!
A quote from one of our investors Noam Ziv (who donated a TON of diapers):
Great Job HealthTap team!! Keep it up. Happy new year, Noam

We are so happy about the outpouring of support for our Diaper Drive! Many of our friends and family have already donated, and we are now seeing a ton of new names donating to our cause.
How you can help beyond donating diapers through our registry:
Help us publicize our drive! Tweet, update your facebook status, even email your close friends! Many moms may have diapers that are too small for their baby. Feel free to swing by HealthTap in downtown Palo Alto to drop them off for families in need.

What a great cause!!! Love, Alison & Travis James
Thank you Alison!

We want to send a special thanks out to Leah Dillon and her son Jack. Not only does Leah help us by coming into the office for User Testing, she also writes incredible blog articles for TapMommies, and now she is promoting our Diaper Drive AND has donated a box of each diaper size herself! Thank you Leah!

We’re going to be stocking a “diaper pantry” for Stanford’s Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital! Everyone can make a difference, and for under $10. Please click here to donate through our diapers.com registry or swing by the office with diapers you are no longer using. Every little bit helps!

HealthTap is doing a New Year’s Diaper Drive! We’re working with Bay Area non-profit Help a Mother Out to build a diaper pantry for a local hospital. To donate, stop by our offices or visit our Diapers.com registry!
About Help a Mother Out:
Help A Mother Out (HAMO) is dedicated to increasing access to diapers for families in need. Started by two moms (March, 2009) with an initial investment of $100, this one time diaper drive has evolved into a nationally-recognized grassroots organization raising both diapers and awareness.We advocate for long term change in federal social safety net programs, as no program (e.g., food stamps, WIC) currently includes diapers. Our vision is a day when every baby has an adequate supply of diapers.
