Welcome ABC7 Viewers! Will You Give Cheeks a Chance?

Many thanks to Emmy award winning journalist and morning news anchor Kristen Sze and ABC7 News for reporting on our efforts to bring diapers to homeless and low income babies across the Bay Area.

Welcome ABC7 Viewers! Will You Give Cheeks a Chance?We are delighted you stopped by to learn how you can help. Our partner agencies assist homeless families, victims of domestic violence, as well as  families living at or below the poverty line in one of the most affluent regions of the country.

As much as this economic downturn has effected each one of us, there are many local families who are faced with impossible decisions, such as choosing between food or diapers for their children.

We are absolutely thrilled that ABC7 reported on our grassroots campaign. Something that was not reflected in the segment is that HAMO’s campaign is not the work of one sole person, but is the product of a long list of contributors and volunteers who have come together to raise diapers and awareness on this issue. You can read more about our key contributors in our About Us page.

Cloth Diapers

Since the segment aired we have received a number of emails and comments regarding cloth diapers. We think cloth is a great option for families who are in a position to choose, afford to purchase, and launder them. Our partner agencies have advised us that cloth is not a practical option for the majority of their clients, many of whom are living in shelters, or cramped living quarters without access to private laundry facilities. Therefore, we choose to support our partners by providing donors with both an eco-friendly and generic brand diaper option. To learn more see Diapers 101 and our FAQ .
