Build Your Stash Bash and Support a New Charity!

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!

  2. This is helping to spread awareness about other diaper companies and things to learn/share on Pinterest. Exciting contest as I await my first baby and plan to use cloth for all my kids. I’m so glad there is so much support and so many companies who make cloth diapers available! I’m hoping to inspire people around me to save money and create less waste by doing cloth!! 🙂

  6. I’m excited because we’re a low income family who is just starting out with cloth (after a 5 year break that we gave away all our cloth diapers from the last bunch of kids). I’d love to win one of these packages. I think your charity is a fantastic one – and hope that it will be a raving (continued) success.

  8. I’m quite excited about the lagoon baby gift card…I’ve seen a few things there that tickle my fancy (CJ’s BUTTer, for one, is fantastic!). I love the things that promote cloth…a lot of my friends think I’m a bit nuts to use it.

  11. I have a newborn on the way. I could really use some new diapers so that both of my babes can be in cloth. To that end, I appreciate the effort that these companies are putting forth to be able to help those in need get into cloth diapering. I know that I will be donating my diapers once we are done with them. Thanks for the giveaway.
