When we first spoke with Michael, the founder of Dributts, we knew within about 2 minutes that this was a company we wanted to stand behind. Here I was, chatting with a complete stranger, and yet – it felt like we were friends.
I like people like that. We think you do, too.
He shared the vision behind this mission. He told us about the mothers in developing countries, who aren’t able to provide diapers for their babies. The fecal matter from these children go into the homes and diseases are spread.
Let’s pause on that fact for a moment. These mothers aren’t able to provide diapers for their babies, one of the most basic necessities for children. One of the leading killers of children under the age of 5 in developing countries is fecal related diseases. Uncontrolled, it will claim the lives of millions of children. Millions – you guys. Millions.
Enter Michael and his team at Dributts.
They visited these homes. They began speaking with these families. And what they discovered was an immediate need to provide diapers for babies.
They couldn’t use disposable diapers as those are way too expensive and cause massive environmental problems. They couldn’t use traditional cloth diapers as those are too hot and actually hold on to bacteria and cause rash.
So they worked together to come up with a reusable, easy to use, washable, light weight, long lasting (up to two years!) diaper for these families. Also cool? They partner with pastors and leaders to teach the families receiving these diapers how to properly use them and why they are so desperately needed.
How awesome is that?
Here’s where we need you. As Michael says, “let’s cover a TON of butts.”
