Help A Mother Out (HAMO) was formed in the spring of 2009 in reaction to media reports about the economic crisis's effect on young children, families, and mothers, in particular the growing numbers of homeless children and families in California. Reaching out to San Francisco Bay Area shelters, cofounders Lisa Truong and Rachel Fudge learned that the number-one need was not baby blankets, clothing, or even food but diapers-which are not covered under social-safety net programs like WIC or food stamps. So they decided to organize a Mother's Day diapers-and-wipes donation drive to benefit a dozen agencies serving low-income and homeless families throughout California. Using the powerful, and free, social-networking and internet technologies at their disposal-such as Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Gmail, even Amazon.com-they mounted a campaign that generated over 13,000 diapers for families in need.
Surprised and awed by the outpouring of support from across the country,they decided to turn the one-time drive into an ongoing year-round campaign both to encourage diaper donations and to raise awareness.
