CLOSED Giveaway and Auction: Fall 2012 Cloth Diaper Drive Nov. 5-30 (US & Canada)

Welcome to the Fall 2012 Cloth Diaper Drive Giveaway & Fundraising Event hosted by Leettle Baby!

*Giveaway now closed. Fundraising efforts still open!

I’m excited to join Leettle Baby and other awesome bloggers to promote this worthy cause! Last spring, with the help of readers like you, enough funds were raised to send 30 diaper covers and 30 cotton prefolds to the DFW Cloth Diaper Project!

This time around we hope to make an even greater impact. For this event, we would love to help the Tomahawk Sustainment Mission in their efforts to expand their cause to begin a cloth diapering program that will benefit the people living in the poverty-stricken Appalachia region of Kentucky. The founder, Terri, has estimated that there were 500 children that could benefit from this program.

DID YOU KNOW? The Appalachia region covers 13 different U.S. states, encompasses 420 counties and includes 25 million people? Sadly, some of the most distressed areas have 150% poverty rate over the average U.S. rate.

Why Cloth Diapers?

As many of us parents know, diapering our children can cost us thousands of dollars. According to the Real Diaper Association, using disposable diapers costs a family about $66 dollars per month, and about $1,600 for the first two years. Now, imagine if you had to decide if your family was going to eat or spend money on buying more diapers. Some families even have to re-use their babies DISPOSABLE diapers because they cannot afford to buy more. The wonderful thing about cloth diapers is that you do not have to worry about purchasing more diapers, and you can always have clean ones readily available! With this diaper program, these families will not have to spend a penny on diapers for their children.

In addition, disposable diapers are not compostable and are estimated to take 250 – 500 years to break down! Now imagine if you did not have a trash service to remove those diapers (like some of those living in the Appalachia area)…where would they go? Cloth diapers provide a more sanitary option to the environment and reduce landfill waste.

Personally, I chose to cloth diaper my son to reduce landfill waste, and because I wanted something soft, gentle, and chemical-free against his skin.

How You Can Help:

A donation in any amount is greatly appreciated, and they’re tax deductible!

There are quite a few other ways that you can help us get as many of these precious children cloth diapered as possible, just click HERE.
