Destiny Diaper Bank is looking for baby sponsors. What is a baby sponsor? A baby sponsor is someone who helps to sponsor a local baby each month with needed baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, bottles, blankets, strollers, car seats, high chairs, and other needed baby items. Our local babies have mommies that are in need of help. Their mommies are in school trying to complete their education or working to help provide for their babies. The baby mommies are hard at work trying to do their best but at times it seems inpossible. The cost of diapers, day care, and just living seems to get in the way and it sometimes looks easier to drop out of school or quit work and go on welfare.
The facts are that diapers cannot be obtained through Food Stamps, or WIC and the cost can be overwhelming each month. One in three moms cannot afford diapers and at times have been known to empty the solid in a diaper and replace a wet diapers just to stretch out the use. Babies sitting in a wet diaper are more likely to suffer diaper rashes that can lead to health risks and abuse from a challenged caretaker who does not have the patience to help a crying baby.
Become a BABY Sponsor and help these babies to have a dry bottom and a happier life. For $50.00 a month Destiny Diaper Bank can supply a baby with diapers, wipes, clothing, and other needed baby items for one month. These diapers are distributed to student moms and working moms with proof of WIC. Each mom must have a sponsor funding for her to receive assistance each month.
Please consider becoming a baby sponsor.

My husband Jack and I met 35 years ago at 1st Assembly of God here in Ft. Myers.
I came to Florida as a divorced single mom of two boys trying to make ends meet while working as an OR Tech. at Lee Memorial Hospital.
Jack had recently gone through a divorce securing custody of his 5 children.
Two weeks after meeting, Jack asked me to marry him. Two months later we were married, with 7 children under the age of 7 years.
Jack soon realized he had a lot of mouths to feed and started his own painting business. For the next 30 years, Brother's Painting provided for this large family of 10. A son was born to us 6 years after becoming married.
I came from a small town in Illinois (300 people). Jack grew up outside Buffalo, N.Y. (Bill's Fan)
So, city boy meets farm girl and 35 years later here we are.
We have seen our share of ups and downs. In 1994, Jonathan ( oldest son) was attending Zion Bible College in Providence RI. We received a call that he had passed away. His aorta burst. Just like that our lives were never the same.
Because of our relationship with God, we have been able to recover but never be the same. There is always a plan and it is always good. Sometimes we just can't see it, but it is OK.
Because of Jack's hard work in the painting business I have been privileged to be free to work in a lot of activities - giving into our community.
I have been able to stay busy.
Eight years ago, I actually ran out of things to do and that is when I had the idea for Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida, Inc. I did the research on becoming a 501 c 3 non profit charity and after about a year our charity received its official status as a non profit charity. We began as a women's group meeting on Saturdays for breakfast. Not long after that I realized the need for diapers in our area and started Destiny Diaper Bank.
At that time a public relations company - Ogilvie PR. contacted me about coming up to Chicago to share information about what we were doing. Myself, along with 9 other diaper banks attended our first diaper summit. We were awarded 300K diapers for our information.
Those diapers have been long gone. We at that time had 5 distribution sites giving out almost 3,000 diapers a day.
During the last couple years we have had to re-group. We do not have the large supply of diapers like we once did. We need help from the community
Our future is bright. We have several events planned for the Fall of 2015 and we will soon be registering our 2015 - 2016 student moms.
Some of our plans include Destiny Student Mom Center where our student moms will be able to participate in several opportunities that will benefit their future personally and successfully through education.
They will have mentoring, and also time with their own peers.
The future is bright. Come along with us and be apart of making it happen!
