Support Little Bottoms Let’s Get Behind September’s Diaper Drive for Fairfax Diapers!

Diapers are material basic necessities all children require, yet, 1 in 3 families struggle with “Diaper Need'', defined as the lack of a sufficient amount of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry, and healthy. With increasing costs and supply chain challenges, this number is only expected to increase.     


Help Sponsor 25,000 Diapers for Local Babies in Need

In September, Social4Good (S4G) will host their fourth annual drive to support Fairfax Diapers during National Diaper Need Awareness Week.  In their first three years, S4G donated more than 67,000 diapers.  Recognizing the need for diapers in Fairfax County is greater than ever, a goal has been set to donate 25,000 diapers to meet one month’s demand by local families. 


100% of Your Donation Purchases Diapers 

Your financial donation gives Fairfax Diapers flexibility to purchase what they need when they need it. Your $25 donation provides up to 180 diapers.  Using Social4Good’s Grapevine Platform, 100% of your donation will be granted to Fairfax Diapers where every dollar donated goes towards providing diapers for families in need.


About Fairfax Diapers  

Fairfax Diapers addresses a critical need in our community by raising awareness and easing the challenge of diaper insecurity.  Vienna’s Christine Kenny launched Fairfax Diapers four years ago; since that time, they have distributed 670,000+ diapers. The Kenny family basement and garage function as headquarters, so there are no overhead or staff costs.

S4G Launches August 2022 Project to Support!

Help Deliver Dignity and Basic Necessities to Adolescent Girls in Fairfax County

As much as we love GIRL POWER, there are downsides. Periods, heavy bleeding, cramps, overactive hormones, breakouts, PMS, and soiled undergarments are no fun. Now imagine being in school and not being able to afford pads, tampons, underwear or sports bras. For many girls, having a monthly supply of period products, sports bras to wear to school, and more than a few pairs of underwear are luxuries.  

Let’s make the 2022-2023 school year a less stressful one for adolescent girls in our community who need these items. Social4Good (S4G) will help BRAWS stock up on period products, sports bras, and undergarments for 30+ Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). 

GOAL: One Month of Supplies for FCPS Students in Need

S4G has set an aggressive goal to provide one month of supplies (560 packages of pads + 130 boxes of tampons!) for FCPS students in need. There are two ways to donate, both of which are quick and easy and allow BRAWS to receive, organize, and distribute the donated products as efficiently as possible!  

1) Donate in-kind via Amazon wish list with items shipped directly to BRAWS. Be sure to include Social4Good on your order so we can track against the goal.  

2) Make a financial contribution via S4G’s Grapevine Platform or by clicking the Donate Now buttonDonors will receive a tax receipt from Grapevine and funds will be remitted to BRAWS for Social4Good's project.

BRAWS is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides menstrual supplies and new bras and undergarments to women and children in crisis, who do not have access to these supplies or who cannot afford them. To carry out its mission, BRAWS partners with 100+ shelters, schools, and community organizations statewide that support girls and women in crisis.
