Parents decide to use cloth diapers for a multitude of reasons. Some choose cloth diapers because it is kinder to the environment. Others choose cloth diapers because of the long term cost savings. Some families, though, are truly struggling: they are part of the one in three families in the United States and Canada who have to choose between buying disposable diapers and buying food or paying rent. Regardless of why these families choose cloth, the start up costs can often be intimidating. For that 33%, the start up costs can be crippling and seemingly insurmountable. That’s where Cloth for a Cause, Cloth Diaper Addicts, Viva Veltoro, and Leettle Baby… and the Build Your Stash Bash comes into play.
Cloth for a Cause is a brand new Canadian charity. We’ve been operating since 2011 with a simple mission: to help those 33% get their babies in diapers. In the year and a half that we’ve been open, Cloth for a Cause has expanded from one little chapter here in Prince George to fourteen stretching across Canada. We’ve helped nearly 150 families get their babies in cloth. Last month, Cloth for a Cause became a legal charity. Not only does that mean that our ability to help struggling families has grown, it also means that our need for assistance has grown! You can help by donating to Cloth for a Cause through our PayPal account or by sending a cloth diaper donation to one of our chapters. (If you live in Canada and are making a donation of $20 or greater, we can issue a tax receipt!) If you’re near one of our local chapters, you can donate material goods and cash directly to the chapter. If you’re not and you’d like to donate some diapers, our Nova Scotia chapter has a large need for services!
Several wonderful companies have teamed up to put together to help us put together two awesome packages to Grow Your Stash!
