A North Carolina woman who lost her job because she couldn't keep up with her baby's diapers is now getting help from an unlikely source: Elon Musk.
The Tesla CEO is donating $1 million to the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro to help women and their families, the News & Observer reports.
The foundation's Women to Women program has awarded $165,000 to 11 nonprofit organizations in Greensboro and Winston-Salem since it was created in 2012 to help women and their families, per a release.
Musk first learned of the program while visiting a shelter for abused women last year.
"I was so moved by the stories they were telling," he says of the women at the shelter.
"I knew I had to do something to help them."
Since then, he's donated $10 million to causes that help women and their families, including his own alma mater, the University of Florida, where he's now the chairman of the board, per the release.
