To better explain what Giving Diapers, Giving Hope really does Kim Rosas of Dirty Diaper Laundry made a short film about them. What many don’t realize is that they are always receiving and shipping diapers even when there are no blog posts being written, or facebook statuses about them, or tweets being sent. Day in and day out these women and volunteers are putting in hours and hours just unpacking donations, sorting diapers, approving applications, and shipping boxes of hope to families. It might seem like a small thing, these little boxes of diapers, but to anyone who has ever struggled to choose between buying diapers or buying food this little box is truly the gift of freedom and peace of mind. Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is a non-profit that provides income-qualified families a stash of cloth diapers for a small shipping fee. The organization started in 2011 when Kristen McCarthy was suddenly without a job and still had two babies in cloth diapers. As a single mom she wasn't sure what she was going to do. Luckily she had already been cloth diapering and had enough to not worry. She wondered what other families would do in the same situation but that didn't already have cloth diapers. How could they afford to buy disposables, or even cloth diapers? The start-up cost can be a few hundred diapers and when you are living with little or no money then that is money you don’t have. With no federal or state programs that provide any diapering assistance Kristen, along with Emily Glover, started Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. After almost two years these two women have been able to ship over 3,600 diapers all across the country. Hundreds of families no longer need to worry about how they will afford to buy diapers and their babies will have a clean and healthy bottom no matter what. In 2013 the organization partnered with the Cape Ann YMCA's Leader's Club in their hometown of Gloucester. The Teen Leader's Club, a group who spend part of their free time doing volunteer work, now assists with the packing and shipping of cloth diapers. With an ever increasing number of applications and donations their work is very appreciated and necessary to keep the organization running.

  1. Cinella, thanks for the info. Giving cloth diapers to a needy family is such a wonderful idea. I just wrote a blog about donating to a diaper bank, but this is even better because one donation can do all their babies. Thanks for sharing.
