Child Poverty And What We’re Doing To Stop It

Join Johnson Baby in the fight against Child Poverty

Our Story

Johnson’s Baby has been around for the past 125 years, and its mission has been to provide gentle products for babies in each stage of their lives. Our mission statement states that we believe in “being gentle with our children, and with their dreams and ambitions”, yet not all kids are able to live in this same reality. Which is why we are announcing our new campaign to tackle child poverty.

The Scary Facts About Child Poverty

Our campaign, “One Diaper At A Time”, is to make awareness of the current child poverty issues in the US. The Children’s Defense Fund found in a study done in 2018 that about 1 in 6 children were born into poverty. Of those being born into poverty, 73 percent of children are children of color. Thus, proving that poverty isn’t only a socio-economic issue but a race issue as well. Us at Johnson Baby believes that every child has the right to grow up in a safe, and gentle home. However, this isn’t possible due to the current disparities in the poverty level. It’s up to us as one of the major companies in children’s products to do our part.
