All I Want For My Birthday Is…

 …A million diapers.  Is that too much to ask?

As of this moment, Help a Mother Out has collected 985,740 diapers to give to needy families throughout the country.  We hope to get to 1,000,000 by September 30, which happens to be my 41st birthday.  Since the past year has had, among other things, some pretty terrible losses in it for me, I selfishly appeal to you to help me create a bright spot for others.  It will make me feel good.

Go ahead, Internet.  You have nine days.  Tell everyone. Tell them to go here and mail some diapers to me.  Tell them to go here and donate money towards purchasing diapers for infants at a homeless shelter.  Tell them to spread the word by social media, printed flyers, word of mouth, or smoke signal.  Make a stink.  Help us.

Don’t bother making a me a cake.  Help a Mother Out.

*Update 9/26:  I have actually received 7 boxes of diapers so far!  However, Amazon has been omitting your names from the packing slips!  I would love to thank you for sending them, so let me know if you do, and also email your receipt to HAMO to get your tax deduction letter.  Thank you, nice people.
