Back on July 30th, this is how I announced this year’s fall diaper drive on our Facebook page:
Gearing up – 2 days until the Detroit Area Diaper Bank’s Fall Diaper Drive launches!
August 1st launches our 2nd Annual Fall Diaper Drive. As I considered what goal to set for this year, I reflected on last year — our first drive, we were just a few months old and set what was an ambitious goal for us at the time, 30,000 diapers (or funds to buy them) by Thanksgiving 2009. With great support from our community and donors, we ended up collecting over 54,000 diapers!
An expected move would be to double last year’s goal and shoot for 60,000 this year, right? But we’re all about the UNexpected here at the Detroit Area Diaper Bank so we’re not just aiming to double last year’s goal, we’re hoping to double our TAKE.
So our 2010 Fall Diaper Drive’s goal is 100,000 diapers by Thanksgiving!
Think we can do it? Yeah, me too. So get ready!
