Jake’s Diapers of Kaukauna, WI has acquired the assets of The Little Bee, Co. of Milton, PA and will continue its mission of helping babies and mothers in need.       


Jake’s Diapers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization solving diaper needs by providing diapers for babies, children and adults in extreme poverty and disaster situations.  Since 2013, Jake’s Diapers has impacted the lives of more than 7,000 people in 16 countries through providing more than 75,000 cloth diapers The Little Bee is a family run, socially conscious small business that provides resources to vulnerable children in need through its “GET & GIVE” mission. 


“This is a perfect fit for our organization,” explained Jake’s Diapers founder and CEO Stephanie Bowers. “We’ve worked with The Little Bee for years, and with its founder moving on to other endeavors, it made sense for us to acquire the assets and continue the outreach already underway.”


“While The Little Bee’s retail sales have come to an end, our mission and legacy will continue through Jake’s diapers,” explained The Little Bee’s founder, Jona Heise. “Our inventory will be acquired by Jake’s and they will continue our diaper drops and outreach to our loyal customers and donors. Our missions are closely aligned, so I’m delighted The Little Bee’s legacy will live on.”  


Both organizations distribute diapers via what is known as “Diaper Drops,” conducted in partnership with Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and other nonprofits. Jake’s Diapers will assume management and coordination of The Little Bee’s diaper drops.
