Huggies® and National Diaper Bank Network Recognize Martina’s Commitment to Improving the Lives of Children and Families.
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — What is acclaimed country singer and songwriter Martina McBride going to do with 53,000 diapers donated in her honor last night at the Grand Ole Opry House? She’ll make sure the diapers—a basic need of every infant and toddler—are delivered to the Nashville Diaper Connection. The community-based nonprofit helps local families who struggle to afford enough diapers to keep their infants and toddlers clean, dry and healthy.
Prior to her performance last night at the Opry, McBride was recognized by the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), and its founding sponsor Huggies®, for the many memorable moments she has created for Opry audiences during the past 25 years, as well as for her work with Team Music Is Love, the charity she founded in 2011. Through Team Music is Love, McBride regularly engages with her fans to help improve the lives of children and families in hometowns throughout the U.S.
In honoring McBride, Huggies donated a day’s worth of diapers for each of the 4,400 audience seats at the Opry, which equals 26,500 diapers for 4,400 babies. As she performed twice, the donation was doubled to 53,000 diapers.
McBride’s Team Music Is Love will help coordinate the delivery of the diapers in the coming weeks to the Nashville Diaper Connection, a member of National Diaper Bank Network.
“While my three daughters are grown, I know the importance of clean diapers in keeping a baby happy and healthy,” said McBride. “The fact that many mothers can’t afford the diapers they need for their baby is troubling. I’m honored that Team Music Is Love is working with the National Diaper Bank Network to help address diaper need. All babies deserve clean diapers.”
Since its founding in June 2013, the Nashville Diaper Connection has distributed more than 130,000 diapers. The 501(c)3 organization accepts donations of diapers and dollars to help struggling families in Nashville. More information is available at www.nashvillediaperconnection.org.
McBride resides in Nashville with her husband, John, and their three daughters. Keep up to date on her activities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
