Brooke Long

Interim Secretary

Brooke Long

a wife juggling a house full of boys while enjoying a career as a cosmetologist and dance teacher. Working at a sustainable hair salon in Tulsa has sparked a passion in Brooke for making simple life changes to help better the environment. With two little ones in diapers at once, Brooke knows first hand the financial burden of diapers on a family. She was immediately amazed at the huge impact Permanent Diaper Relief has made for families struggling to provide for their babies. PDR’s sustainability efforts hooked Brooke on the mission of PDR from the moment she heard about the organization. Brooke hopes to help PDR reach more families and continue to grow the numbers of babies permanently diapered while serving on their board.

Founder & Executive Director

Madelaine Martin

Ex-Officio Board Member

Madelaine Martin

Madelaine has an undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts and attended Oklahoma State University where she completed the graduate program in Teaching, Learning, and Leadership. When her son was born, she began cloth diapering with a stash of used diapers gifted by a friend. Since then, those same diapers have covered the bums of four babies in their lifespan. She realized the impact cloth diapers could have, on both an economic and environmental standpoint, and she decided to further that impact within the Tulsa community. Thus, Permanent Diaper Relief was formed. Madelaine’s vision for the organization is large, and she believes with the right team and the right support, her vision is far from impossible
