No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive and Charity Event

Doulas of Raleigh will be hosting the 1st Annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive and Charity Event on May 5, 2018.

Our No Child Wet Behind Event seeks to make a difference when it comes to diaper need in our community. Please join us at Lonerider Brewing Company on event day as we set out to build a world record-breaking diaper cake. There will also be bounce houses, face painters, child-friendly activities, boutique shopping, and more. The cost of admission is $10 plus a diaper donation of any size.
