A letter from Kelly & Norah

As you know, Baby2Baby’s mission is to provide children living in poverty, ages 0-12 years, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. Last year, with your support, we served 180,000 children in Los Angeles alone and tens of thousands more across the country.

Last year, Baby2Baby distributed our 50 millionth item to a child in need, and we also distributed a record number of items including:

  • 8 million diapers
  • 437,599 toys
  • 298,269 items of clothing
  • 279,480 hygiene products
  • 151,059 pairs of socks & underwear
  • 97,475 books
  • 64,241 backpacks
  • 36,873 pairs of shoes

The support we receive year after year is how we continue to do what we do and how we grow the program every year to reach thousands and thousands more children in poverty. Last year, we were able to formalize our disaster relief and emergency response program. Our Baby2Baby National Network has expanded in the last year and these deep relationships across the country have mattered most when disaster hits.

In 2018, Baby2Baby sent hundreds of thousands of items to Hurricane Florence in North & South Carolina right when the flooding began so they were waiting for the babies as they arrived with nothing at the emergency shelters. We helped the children left homeless by Hurricane Michael in Florida, stepped in to help innocent children separated from their families and sent truckloads of basic essentials to families and children who lost everything in the Camp Fire in Paradise, California, the Hill Fire in Ventura, California & the Woolsey Fire in Malibu, California.

At Baby2Baby, we are here to help children in poverty regardless of how their families arrived there. We don’t judge what happened — because when we get to those children, they are wearing dirty diapers and sleeping on floors and to us, it doesn’t matter why, just how we can help.

We are proud of the work Baby2Baby has done in the past 7 years, but we aren’t even close to being done and we still need your help. Your continued generosity will make a difference in their lives.

On behalf of the children Baby2Baby serves and those we are not yet reaching, thank you for your support.

With our deepest thanks,

Norah & Kelly

Since assuming the leadership roles at Baby2Baby in 2011, Norah Weinstein and Kelly Sawyer Patricof, the Co-Presidents of the organization, have transformed Baby2Baby from a grassroots organization into a nationally recognized children's non-profit.

    Kelly and Norah have pioneered a uniquely innovative and high-impact approach to philanthropy through an unparalleled expansive celebrity engagement network and an effective corporate sponsorship program, which includes a diverse range of partners such as Huggies, Tiny Prints and Old Navy.

    Through their Board members, "angels" and honorees, they have assembled a coalition of celebrity mothers that includes activists and actresses such as Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell, Julie Bowen, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Kelly Rowland, Kerry Washington, Rachel Zoe and more.

    Kelly and Norah have also grown the organization into a national thought leader in this space. In 2015, Baby2Baby announced its national expansion through the creation of the Baby2Baby National Network, broadening the organization's reach to twenty-eight additional cities throughout the country. In 2016, they were named a partner of the Obama White House from President Obama's historic diaper gap initiative. They have also testified at the California State capitol on behalf of several bills focused on alleviating the cost of diapers for low-income families.

    Prior to taking over Baby2Baby, Norah, an attorney, practiced law at Skadden Arps Slate Meager & Flom. She graduated from U.C. Berkeley and the USC School of Law with its highest honors.
