For millions of families living in poverty, diapers are unaffordable, and most U.S. government programs don’t cover the cost (up to $100 per month per child). Baby2Baby, a national nonprofit led by co-CEOs Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein, has distributed 150 million diapers to families in need since 2011, working with homeless shelters, domestic-violence and foster-care programs, and other organizations. In 2021, it developed its own diaper-manufacturing system to cut out middlemen and lower costs. “It has allowed us specifically to distribute an additional 35 million diapers since ,” says Weinstein. “By the end of this year, that number will be 50 million.”
