    The Austin Diaper Bank serves 10,000 Central Texas families and distributes close to one million diapers each year. The need has doubled since last year... “Diapers are a basic need item just like food, water, shelter for every parent,” McDaniel said. “If you ask any mom what would you do if you didn’t have enough diapers? They would panic it is terrifying and it can lead to illness and sickness and trauma for families.”... A lot of the clients that we serve have told us some pretty awful stories where they are trying to find a way to provide a...

The money is also being used to fly migrants from the border to their target job sites and homes in the United States.

    Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif) and Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn) are proposing a federal grant program that would provide $100 million per year to cities to fund diapers. “As we have seen, many of our urban centers are struggling to deal with people defecating in the streets,” Rep. Lee said. “On the one hand, the accumulating piles of excrement pose a health hazard. On the other hand, cities want to respect people’s right to pursue happiness in their own way. Our proposed legislation bridges this gap by providing the funds to pay for the distribution of adult diapers in these feces bestrewn...

Arthur “Art” Adams, 19, was a gang member who was planning to sell the diapers, Orange County sheriff’s Capt. Angelo Nieves said. Adams had an arrest record dating to 2011, when he was 15 years old, records show. He was sentenced to four years of probation in June for two 2013 racketeering convictions.

    It seems some people have found some literal “dirt” on the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. But suddenly the searches descend into the bizarre. This is unfortunate for her personally, but the fact that she has lied about her medical status in order to continue the race is absolutely disgusting. What the public decides to do with this information remains to be seen, but this will without a doubt cast a brown shadow on not only Hillary’s campaign, but on her chances of ever becoming the president of the United States.

    ...Ryan called the Democratic lawmakers' sit-in Wednesday to protest inaction on gun laws a "publicity stunt," saying that House liberals were more interested in headlines.... .....the sit-in that began earlier in Ryan's chamber earned his scorn. "This is nothing more than a publicity stunt," Ryan said, saying House Democrats would infringe on Second Amendment rights and do nothing to prevent terrorist attacks. "This is not about a solution to a problem. This is about trying to get attention." Ryan said they would not take up gun bills that the Senate already voted down on Monday. He called on legislation to...

    On Mother's Day, President Obama wants to talk to you about the "diaper gap." In a post on Medium for the holiday, Mr. Obama explained that many low-income families struggle to afford diapers for their young children, a trend that can lead to health and well-being issues for not only the children but for the mothers. "I can't imagine what it would have been like to be a parent that has to choose between diapers and other basic expenses," he wrote. "Access to clean diapers isn't just important for a child's health and safety. Research has shown that mothers who...

    On two different occasions Congress has rejected laws to give “needy” families government-subsidized diapers—in addition to free food and medical care—but President Obama is determined to make it happen, allocating $10 million in taxpayer money to the highly unpopular cause. The multi-million-dollar initiative is being promoted by the White House as essential to eradicate a national “diaper divide” and the goal is to abolish “diaper disparity” by expanding access to affordable diapers for America’s poorest families. Behind this high-priced mission is Cecilia Muñoz, the White House Domestic Policy Director. A renowned open borders lobbyist in Washington D.C., Muñoz was vice...

    President Obama's latest priority as he winds down his final months in the White House is solving America's "diaper divide" using technology. The White House is "getting creative" to expand diaper access to low-income Americans and close the "diaper divide" by partnering with online retailers, diaper manufacturers, and non-profit organizations, Cecilia Munoz, the director of Obama’s Domestic Policy Council, said Thursday.

    Washington (CNN)—Corinne Cannon had a tough time adjusting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, Jack. "We were ecstatic to have him, but he was a difficult infant," Cannon said. "He cried pretty much all the time, and it was so emotionally exhausting." That's an experience many new mothers can relate to. But Cannon knew she had the resources and support to get her through that many families do not have. She felt compelled to help them, so she called local organizations to ask what she could do. Over and over, the answer she got was "diapers." Nearly...

    DNA testing was inconclusive on soiled diapers thought to have been left by Pennsylvania police ambush suspect Eric Frein, the FBI said Friday. The diapers had been exposed to the elements, so "you can’t say one way or the other" whether Frein wore them, said Edward Hanko, special agent in charge of the Philadelphia FBI office. State police announced last week they had discovered diapers in the northeastern Pennsylvania woods where Frein is believed to be hiding, and that he might have worn them so he could remain stationary for long periods of time.

    It was the last week of the month, and Shanique Brown had already spent her $515 in CalWORKs benefits. Other programs would prevent Brown and her 18-month-old son, Armani, from going hungry, but the 22-year-old single mom had no money for a necessity so basic it is often forgotten: diapers. “I cried and cried,” said Brown, now 24. Armani is now potty-trained, but a new state bill seeks to ensure low-income parents will never face the challenge Brown did. If passed, Assembly Bill 1516 would make California the first state in the country to create a diaper assistance program for...

    Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. One expert not involved in the study called on more aid from state and federal agencies. "Children wind up with all types of infections. There is a critical need for diapers and it's not being met," publich health advocate Helene Abiola said to Medpage Today. "Right...

In a humorous, but fact-filled PSA, Olivia Wilde, Bono and Richard Branson announce they are joining Matt Damon's toilet strike to raise awareness about the global water crisis.

"I remember when Matt first brought up the idea, it was at a meeting of the illuminati,"...
