LOS ANGELES — Kelly Sawyer Patricof does not seem like the kind of woman who would devote her life to diapering the children of the poor. An effervescent former fashion model active on Instagram and Twitter, Ms. Patricof — messy chic blond hair, mischievous eyes, fingernails painted hot lava — prefers Chanel pencil skirts and Tabitha Simmons haute heels. She is married to Jamie Patricof, a movie producer and a son of the venture capital tycoon Alan Patricof.

What really pumps her blood is Baby2Baby, a charity that supplies low-income families with diapers and children’s clothing that she took over in 2011 with a friend, Norah Weinstein. “One out of three moms has to choose between giving their child a clean diaper or food,” Ms. Patricof said. “We will not stop until we help fix that.
