Exciting Times in Cloth for a Cause!

One of the things that I love the most about volunteering with Cloth for a Cause is that I’ve gotten to meet women all across Canada (from the confines of my own living room) who are passionate about two of my favorite things: cloth diapers and helping others.  Right now, there’s a ton of new things going on in the not for profit organization.

Welcome, Nova Scotia!

cfac fluff stackLess than two weeks ago, Cloth for a Cause got a brand new chapter!  We now have a chapter that is servicing all of Nova Scotia.  This means that Cloth for a Cause now spans all the way across Canada, from coast to coast!

Yeah, I’m outrageously excited about this.  The ladies of Nova Scotia are seeing a high demand for loaning diapers, so that demonstrates that there is most certainly a need for our services on the east coast.  In fact, they just got their first package ready to send out today!  That being said, there are a lot of struggling families in Nova Scotia that could use help.  If you’re willing to ship diapers to a chapter, Nova Scotia is the place to send them.

Congratulations, Southern Ontario!

Our Southern Ontario chapter (which services Ottawa, as well) has had its one year anniversary.  They’ve helped over two dozen families to date and are always willing to help more.  While our cloth diapers are typically donated to the organization at no cost to us, there are costs associated with stripping the diapers to ensure that they are safe to pass on.  There are also costs associated with repairing diapers: elastics, snaps, and thread all cost money.  To help with those costs, Southern Ontario is holding an auction on their Facebook page!  Currently, a custom hybrid fitted from Snug Bug Diapers is up for grabs.

Cloth for a Cause Has a Brand New Domain!

We’ve been operating on Cloth for a Cause.ca for several months now, but because our mission is not just limited to Canada, we’ve also adopted the URL of Cloth for a Cause.org.  We’re also looking forward to rolling out a new design in the next several months to reflect the scope of our volunteers and our services.  If you’ve been helped by Cloth for a Cause, please send a testimonial to me at suzi (at) clothforacause (dot) org.  I’ll use or redact as much information as you’d like.  We’d also love included pictures of fluffy bottoms!  Also, if you’ve helped Cloth for a Cause by donating to us in the past, thank you!  Your support has made it possible for us to help families all across Canada.

Have a Happy Fluffy Wednesday, and think about this: what can you do to help Cloth for a Cause spread fluff across Canada?

  1. Awesome job on the new chapter! I am just reading about this and getting into cloth diapering myself. My hubby isn’t great with all the snaps on ours (I swear they seem straightforward until he tries to use them) but he is very supportive about it. The financials alone were a great reason to swap over. 🙂 Convince your man, Erin! Also they are just a bazillion times cuter. LOL.

    Suzi, could you PM me and let me know what can be done to help out the cause? What kind of advocation or volunteering is needed? I’m in BC.
