Support the Cloth Diaper Foundation!

What is the Cloth Diaper Foundation?

The Cloth Diaper Foundation, formerly known as Miracle Diapers is a fabulous not-for-profit organization run by volunteer cloth diaper advocates and their families.

Their Mission Statement:
Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to helping qualifying families all over the continental United States get a jump start on cloth diapering. Cloth diapers are a more natural, healthy alternative to disposables that reduce overall waste, thereby helping the environment. As a supplementary program, it is not our wish to be a family’s sole source for cloth diapers; rather, we assist families while they build their own supply of diapers. We accept donations given by caring individuals and redistribute them to families in need.

How can you help? 

You can donate diapers-

The Cloth Diaper Foundation accepts donations!  You can donate your gently used cloth diapers to them.  Please visit this link to learn about what they do and do not accept.

If you can't afford to send in your donations you can see if there's a drop-off location near you.  If there is you can arrange to get your diapers to them and when they have enough to send in they will send your donated items to TCDF.

You can donate new and handmade items for their auction and in-stock store-
TCDF has an in-stock store and auction site where you sell and auction off donated items to help raise money.  You can contact them if you have something you'd like to send in.

You can contribute financially-
TCDF accepts donations of cash, checks and/or paypal.  You can help pay the cost of shipping for a recipient or just contribute a little to help cover the cost of their overhead. Click here for more details.

You can become a supporter of TCDF-
TCDF has various levels of sponsor memberships.  Whether you want to sponsor as a family or a business they've got quite a few different options for you to choose from.

The Cloth Diaper Foundation has come really close to having to close their doors many times for lack of funding.  They need all the help they can get. Please share this post wherever you can and help spread the word about this cloth diaper friendly non-profit.

Also, make sure to become a Fan of The Cloth Diaper Foundation on FaceBook!  Tell them that Leslie's Boutique sent you!
