CHARLES CITY, Iowa - Babies are born every second around the world and some are born into more fortunate families than others.
Just months ago, the royal family welcomed their newest family member, Prince George Alexander of Cambridge.
Cindy LaBounty is one of the members of a bible group out of Charles City Iowa and when this event happened for the royal family, they began to think about all of the less fortunate babies in their area.
It's a long standing tradition to throw a baby shower when the newest member of the family arrives, so family or not, the group of women threw a shower to collect donations for the Food Box on Main Street in Charles City.
"There are a lot of babies that don't have this,” LaBounty said, “they don't have the opportunity and the things to take care of them so this will help them."
From bonnets to blankets, diapers to baby wipes, LaBounty and her crew are making sure that all babies in their area are treated like royalty and they had a very helpful message of encouragement from the Queen herself.
The letter read, "The Queen thanks you very much for your message of congratulations on the birth of her great grandson, Prince George of Cambridge."
One of the hosts of Saturday’s event said that they had over 40 boxes of diapers and they have already counted nearly $200 worth of donations.
All donations will be delivered to the Food Box on Monday morning.
