(Editor’s note: As any parent or grandparent knows, there is nothing worse than not having a fresh diaper or bottle of milk for a baby. Our GRAND hat is off to Quidi for their generous donations.)
JERSEY CITY, NJ (November 9, 2012) — 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. The new feature provides an incredibly fast way to help storm-ravaged families in the wake of the damage.
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, bothNew Jerseynatives. “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.”
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. Customers 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 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.
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.
