Krystal told Fox that she and Patrick recently noticed how expensive baby products were, so they decided to “do something to help parents, especially during the pandemic.
Krystal, the founder of breastfeeding support company Milky Mama, posted a video of their kind act on Instagram last month.

The clip shows the couple stuffing cash into diaper boxes, cans of instant formula and boxes of breastmilk containers.
“Being a parent can be tough!” Krystal captioned the video. “Before I founded @milkymamallc, we often struggled to make ends meet. So, Hubby and I went to various @target stores in Southern California and hid money in baby items. We hope that the parents that purchase these items have a brighter day when they find our gifts.”
Krystal told Fox: “We figured it would be a fun little surprise if [parents] could open up some of those essential baby items and find a little surprise that would hopefully brighten up their day or make things a little bit easier.”
“Or, if they weren’t in need, then hopefully they pay it forward,” Krystal added.
However, this won’t be the end of the Duhaneys’ generosity.
Krystal said their goal is to “try every single month to do something charitable, just to give back in some kind of way.
“It’s important for us to show our kids that giving back is so important,” she said. “So, we don’t know if we’ll do the exact same thing, but we’ll definitely do something along the same lines of giving back to parents.”
