Alleviate the hardships of underprivileged groups in Australia and around the world for just one dollar a week.
The Nappy Collective
The Nappy Collective is a volunteer-led organisation that collects leftover nappies and redistributes them to families in need. In Australia, there are 150,000 families who don't have enough nappies to change their children as often as needed. As a result, they cut back on essentials to afford nappies.
The Nappy Collective began with a vision to provide immediate support to family violence survivors. Many survivors of domestic violence are mothers of young children. Often they arrive at a safe house with nothing but the clothes on their back and their children in their arms. The nappies provided to these women provide them with one less thing to worry about.
The Nappy Collective now has collection points all across Australia and continues to expand. To date, it has redistributed over 4 million nappies.
On the morning of 5 June, after a battle with cancer, Phil Garbutt passed away.
Phil was dedicated to his community, driven by a desire to help those less fortunate. In 2013, Phil began Donate A Dollar A Week.
Phil's determination helped grow DDW from an idea into a community that has contributed over $35,000 to support more than 60 incredible Aussie charities.
We are extremely proud of the organisation Phil created. As Phil envisioned, we will continue to build Donate A Dollar A Week into a community of a thousand donors.
Today, we continue to learn from Phil's empathy, compassion, and his dedication to community.
Phil will be remembered as someone who made the world a better place.
