I’m extremely fortunate. So many diaper companies send me cloth diapers to try out on my babies. We have way more than we need for Lowell. So these are on their way to find a new home with a family who can’t afford to buy them for their baby(ies), a family that has to choose between clean diapers or food sometimes.
Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is a non-profit organization that provides education, support and cloth diapers to low income families in the continental United States. This enables families to conserve money that would have been spent on disposable diapers and use it towards other necessary expenses. It also reduces the environmental impact that disposable diapers have on landfills. We are devoted to a greener planet and empowering families and thus, primarily focus on cloth diapers.
My friend Kim Rosas of Dirty Diaper Laundry has done a ton of work for this great cause, and I’m happy to help her by both chipping in and spreading the word.
Here’s a little more info from her about it GDGH:
Approved families receive on average 16 cloth diapers, or more if they have more than one child in diapers. Everything we send is based on what we have and right now we don’t take requests for styles of diapers. Families do have to pay a $35 shipping fee, and this covers shipping to them and shipping back to us when they are done with the diapers since we are a lending foundation.
We accept cloth diapers of any type and size! As long as the diapers are still in useable condition with no delamination, worn out elastic, broken snaps, or non-sticky velcro. If you aren’t sure, ask yourself if you would use it on your child or give it to a friend- If so, it should be ok. We also take wet bags, Snappis, Boingos, and pins, cloth wipes, and any other cloth diaper accessory.
Other ways people can help- make a small donation via PayPal to help us cover the shipping of upcoming donations from participating The Great Cloth Diaper Change locations. Or, people can choose to pay the shipping cost for a family ($35) and “Sponsor a Box of Hope.” https://clothdiapers.wufoo.com/forms/payment-for-giving-diapers-giving-hope/ A lot of our families can’t even pay the $35 to get the diapers shipped.
