Ahead of Make a Difference Day, Pampers is continuing its commitment to provide Koala Kare changing tables in public restrooms in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit and Charlotte
CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pampers’ commitment to install 5,000 changing tables across North America by 2021 secured the help of seven hands-on NFL dads today. In honor of National Make a Difference Day (October 26), Pampers is leading the installation of changing tables in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit and Charlotte so all parents can #LoveTheChange when they’re out and about in their community with their babies.
The seven NFL dads installing the changing tables in locations nominated by local dads and moms in groups such as City Dads Group and Macaroni Kids include:
- New York, NY, Sterling Shepard (@sterlingshepard), New York Giants
- San Francisco, CA, Tevin Coleman (@teco_raww26), San Francisco 49ers
- Detroit, MI, Marvin Jones Jr. (@marvinjonesjr), Detroit Lions
- Philadelphia, PA, Brian Westbrook (@36westbrook), Philadelphia Eagles
- Denver, CO, Derek Wolfe (@derekwolfe_95), Denver Broncos
- Chicago, IL, Matt Forte (@mforte22), Chicago Bears
- Charlotte, NC, Dontari Poe (@poemans_dream), Carolina Panthers
“On the field, I’m focused on the game, but off the field, I’m all about being as present and active as possible with my baby, especially during diaper duty. When I learned that 9 out of 10 dads have gone into a public restroom that has not had a baby changing table, I couldn’t help but get involved with Pampers’ commitment to provide more access in public restrooms,” said Sterling Shepard. “I’m so excited to partner with Pampers in my home of New York City to make sure every hands-on dad who is out and about with his baby has access to a changing table.”
As part of the celebration, Pampers is again partnering with #SquatForChange founder, Donte Palmer, to help install some of the new changing tables. Palmer placed changing table inequality front and center in 2018, when an image he posted on social media with his child in his lap squatting to change his son’s diaper went viral.
“We are proud to partner with NFL players and Donte Palmer who are hands-on dads, and want to help enable them and other fathers in their communities to have access to changing tables,” said Andre Schulten, dad of two and Vice President and General Manager Baby Care North America, Procter & Gamble. “At Pampers, we are committed to removing barriers that make diaper changes on the go difficult and we’re arming parents with the proper changing table resources they need so they can love the change.”
