The Bottles N Bottoms Story
As long as I can remember, even before I embarked on my now twenty-five year career as a pharmacist, I’ve always had compassion for babies and their health and well-being. One Sunday at church in 2009 we were reminded that if we were not already volunteering or helping someone in some capacity, we needed to find a way to “give back.” Initially, an idea of volunteering at Levine Children’s Hospital came up in my church life group. That sounded right up my alley. I looked into it, found out they had a vacancy in the progressive care nursery and signed up to “love on babies.” Two years later in 2011, my husband posed the thought provoking question, as he often does, if we had all the money in the world, who would you help? My answer without hesitation was “babies.” Then it hit me, even though we don’t have all the money in the world, I could start a non-profit organization that provides formula and diapers for families in need with babies and so the concept of Bottles and Bottoms was born, just another way to “love on babies.” I didn’t really know about the “diaper need” nor had I heard of anything called a diaper bank, but after searching the internet it was evident that this was definitely an area that I could try to make an impact on in Charlotte and we all know how important nutrition is to a growing baby. The next day, the commentary in my bible said, “we must remember that God has placed us where we are and given us all we have so that we may encourage others and give to those in need.” Can you say confirmation! This is my calling, my ministry, and my service all for His glory.
