Couple's #stopthecrap campaign aims to help Haiti's babies

Non-profit makes diapers for kids in Haiti

ATLANTA - A husband and wife from Atlanta are trying to solve a global problem. They've started a non-profit to highlight a deadly danger involving babies and their families.

Michael Wahl was inspired to create DriButts after a mission trip to Haiti. While working in a local village repairing wells and building latrines, he noticed babies were naked and defecating in their homes, by the food source and near the water source.

DriButts, a washable, reusable diaper was born. Together Michael and his wife, Starla, made 700 diapers in their home. Now they have manufacturer helping them to keep up with the demand.

To learn more about DriButts, the effort to save thousands of children and how you can help, watch this interview with 11Alive’s Melissa Long interview and Michael and Starla Wahl.
