President Obama attended the South by SouthWest convention in Austin Texas on March 11 where he met with experts in the field of technology to discuss ways they could help solve issues facing Americans today. This convention brings together some of the best and creative professionals in the field. One of the issues the President discussed was the need to help struggling families buy diapers for their children.
Prior to convention, the White House brought together online retailers, diaper manufacturers and non-profits to talk about ways to work together to get diapers to families in a reliable and cost effective way.
The White House matched online retailer Jet.com with a diaper manufacturers. They are now working together to package and ship diapers at a low cost to families and nonprofits all across the country.
