Apply, Donate, Bid

This evening I'd like to talk to you about The Cloth Diaper Foundation! If you haven't heard of them you got to keep reading! Even if you don't have kids it's good to know this information to pass on to those who are expecting and/or having some financial difficulties.


The Cloth Diaper Foundations was founded in January in 2005 as Miracle Diapers. It is a non-profit organization run by moms; Heather, Lisa, Roxanne, Darcey and Juliane. They have all worked extremely hard to get diapers out to those who need them. What the Foundation does is provide cloth diapers to families who are low income and don't have enough money to purchase those high quality diapers. For just the price of shipping (depending on the package that you need), you have gently used diapers. These diapers are a loan. So you can try out different kinds of diapers and save money for the diapers you like best! Several times a year they run out or low of diapers! Ahhh, now there are more moms waiting for diapers. That is why I am writing this post.... donate your gently used diapers. I have! I have been cloth diapering for almost two year now and there are diapers that are still like new (especially the newborn diapers). We plan on having two more children (hoping for boys), so I donated a few girly prints, lol. If you'd like to get some of these donated diapers click HERE for more information on the application process. Applications however are CLOSED. Why? There are not enough diapers to go around and they run out quick when they open up applications. Keep a look up on their Facebook page for updates for when applications re-open! (info below). If you'd like to know more about cloth diapers Cloth Diaper Foundation has lots of resources at the Discovering Cloth page!

Some cool news for all the crafty mamas....

“Sew a Diaper” Fundraiser/Contest sponsored by naturesfabrics.com

What is it all about? Well, get creative and make a cloth diaper. I can be any style (pocket or fitted) and be made of any type of fabric (old t-shirt or soft minky). Then send it to The Cloth Diaper Foundation and a WINNER will be picked, so be creative! The winner will recieve a $25 gift certificate for NaturesFabrics.comth. Then all the diapers received will be auctioned off!! Can't wait to bid! You can read the whole post HERE.

Deadline to send in your diaper is 1/31/2011

Besides donating you can also be a member. Anyone from a family or a retail store can be a member, there are different levels available. Please contact one of the members for more information. Another way is shop at one of the retailers who are members. Some online retailers will donate items for every purchase, that is pretty awesome.

Thanks to all the ladies at The Cloth Diaper Foundation for all they do! I can't wait to meet some of them at the March event for Texas Bloggers. Speaking of Texas Bloggers... if you are a Texas Blogger visit BloggingTexasEvents.com. There's even a cool forum where you can chat it up with other bloggers.
