Madison Lounge offering free gift, discount in exchange for donations to Great Diaper Drive
MADISON, Ala. – One in three families struggles to afford enough diapers for their toddlers. and northern Alabama is no exception. Demand for diapers has increased by about 70% this year alone, according to the National Diaper Bank Network.
Due to the huge need, News 19 is taking action to help our neighbors and local businesses reach us, including Tam’s Natural Solution in Madison.
“We decided this because we heard about the cause and we know that children are our future and we want to make sure they are taken care of in our community,” said Tamara Bozeman, owner of Natural Solution. In exchange for donations, she offers a free gift or $ 20 off a hairdresser appointment.
As a mother herself, Bozeman knows the importance of having plenty of diapers in stock.
“During that time, it’s very expensive,” she says. “You need all the help you can get, so it’s really important for us to donate because you never know what people are going through. “
The Crisis Center of North Alabama says diapers are the number one request they see from mothers or families fleeing a crisis. For this reason, Bozeman hopes to salvage a car full of diapers. In just four days, she has collected dozens of packages so far.
She says the salon has received responses from people inside and outside the Madison community.
Some people donate through Cashapp, and Bozeman buys them the diapers: “If you don’t want to do the shopping, we’ll do it for you!”
She is ready to go above and beyond to help those who need it most.
“When you help someone else, you never know how it changes people’s lives,” Bozeman said. “I’m here today because people have helped me through tough times, so you want to make sure you’re doing it for your community. “
If you would like to come with us and help collect diapers for the little ones in the Tennessee Valley, you can also organize your own Diaper Drive. Ideas on how to get involved can be found here.
