Kids Helping Kids
Caleb's Cause Foundation was created to allow children of all ages to be able to volunteer with their families to help provide food, clothing and basic necessities to local children in need.
We have partnered with local non-profits to achieve this goal as well as being their resource for diapers.
Did You Know?
There are no government programs that provide diapers or cover the cost.
An infant needs an average of 12 diapers a day, while a toddler needs 8.
Some low-income families are forced to keep their children in one diaper a day!
Statistics reveal not having enough diapers for daily changes causes:
Increased health problems
Child abuse is more likely to occur due to non-stop crying from continually wearing soiled diapers.
Parent's often miss work and keep their children out of daycare due to the lack of diapers.
Some diasabled babies never outgrow the need for diapers, placing additional financial and emotional strain on struggling parents.
Since 2012, we have provided diapers to thousands of local children in need. Contact us if you would like to participate in assisting Caleb's Cause once a month, once a quarter, or once a year. We encourage families with children of all ages to participate!
In 2012, my prayer was answered and I received direction on how our family could be involved in serving our neighbor as well as giving back to the community. I wanted, Caleb, my son, to learn about serving others and to develop an attitude for giving that he might carry into his adult life. I also wanted him to understand that other children don’t always have everything they need.
When I intitially began researching charitable activities to get Caleb involved in, I discovered that there are very few organizations that allow children of all ages to volunteer and help. The lack of opportunities to get Caleb involved in was frustrating and dis-heartening; especially knowing there are so many needs in our community.
That’s how Caleb’s Cause Foundation was created. Since our inception, we realized very quickly the missing need in our local pantries wasn't food or clothing, although there is always a need for that, it was diapers. We learned that lack of diapers is a leading cause in child abuse.
Since the foundation started, Caleb, other children in our community, as well as Oklahoma businesses, have been able to help out thousands of local children in need by participating in our annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run.
We strive to one day be able to provide diapers to every child in need, in the state of Oklahoma.

Host a Party
Also, many of our sponsors and volunteers have asked that we come up with a way to raise diapers year round, not just at our own fundraisers. We believe that requesting diapers in lieu of gifts at a birthday party or holiday party is a genius idea!
If you’d like to encourage guests to bring diapers as their gift, download the flyer below.

Because of Caleb's Cause Foundation thousands of babies the OKC metro area have the clean diapers they need. This great foundation's exceptional effort and amazing organization has met and even exceeded our clients diaper needs. Before our partnership with Caleb's Cause Foundation, we struggled to provide for the diaper needs of our clientele. For the past few years, they have steadily increased their influence in the community and leveraged it for the good of others and joy of those who give. We are forever grateful for Marcie, Caleb and the entire Caleb's Cause Foundation Team. Thank you. - Courtney Gregg, Founder of All Things Baby
