San Jose Sharks Holding Diaper Drive for #HAMO #ELB 2/17

Our lips have been sealed until now, but we’ve been dying to tell you this exciting news!

We’re incredibly grateful to be included in the NHL, Hockey for Huggies campaign in February! We’ll be at the San Jose Sharks game next Thursday night, February 17th collecting diapers on behalf of local families, as well as the spreading the word about diaper need in the Bay Area.

From the NHL/San Jose Sharks website:

“The Sharks will be collecting diapers at their home game against the Washington Capitals on Feb. 17 to benefit “Help a Mother Out”, an organization that distributes diapers to local families in need.Fans are encouraged to bring unopened packages of diapers to the game or make a cash donation in exchange for a chance to win prizes. The drive will begin when doors open at 6:15 pm and will continue during the game. In addition to the diaper drive at HP Pavilion, fans can also text the name of their favorite NHL team (Sharks) to 501501 to donate $5 and help diaper babies in their community.”

Are you local? We would love to meet you! Please stop by our collection booth to say hello, donate diapers or money, play plinko, and enter to win one of several Sharks’ fan prizes.

Can’t make it to the game? YOU can still help a mother out:

  1. From your cell phone, TEXT SHARKS,” or “SAN JOSE” to 501501 to donate $5.00 anytime between now and March 28th. The charge will appear on your cell phone bill and proceeds from everyone who texts in “Sharks” or “San Jose” will benefit HAMO via the NHL Foundation.
  2. Spread the word to your friends and family to tell them about this super easy way to help local families with diapers. Share this post on Facebook, Tweet, Link, Blog, Email.

Hugs to our friends at the NHL and Huggies for using their power for good to help babies all across the country.
