Giving Diapers Giving Hope is CELEBRATING 5 Years on Earth Day!
This Earth Day GDGH will be celebrating their 5th Anniversary! GDGH was just a local bank at first, but it wasn’t long though until families around the country began reaching out for help. The other national cloth diaper banks at the time had shut down so GDGH decided to step up and fill the void!
Almost 5 years later GDGH is still serving families all over the US! They’ve been fortunate to have received assistance from amazing individuals and companies over the course of the last 5 years and they continue to rely on that support to meet the needs of 30-60+ families a month! That is a LOT of cloth diapers! During the month of April in honor of Giving Diapers Giving Hope’s 5 Years of Service they are asking fans, businesses and community members to to donate $5 each. This small amount will help GDGH buy new diapers and cover the gap when demand exceeds the amount of diapers donated.
What kind of families does Giving Diapers Giving Hope help?
They help families this this one:
“I recently became a stay at home mommy of 3 children, after realizing that with my job we weren’t bringing home any money from my paycheck. My whole paycheck went to daycare, and in my gas tank to go to and from work. Once I became a stay at home mom I realized that I was pregnant, and with 3 kids and one on the way with one income the stress level went through the roof. We have been struggling for a very long time, trying to provide food, clothes and a roof over our head’s as well as keep our children’s needs met without them knowing that mommy and daddy are broke. Diapering has been, (sighs), hard. We have gone through a few churches and local agencies to help cover my sons butt in the past, but those are few and far between, especially with the sizes that they have donated to them being for infants. My son is turning one in a few weeks and we aren’t out of the woods in diapering by any means, having one thing less to worry about in, your company providing us with relief. would mean the world to us. We have been searching for ways to save some money and this was one area we were sure we weren’t going to be able to do so.”
Please consider giving just $5 to help GDGH continue to provide cloth diapers to qualified families. It’s a Starbucks latte, a Jamba Juice smoothie, a pint of ice cream, or another tube of lipstick in a color that you probably already have. Can’t make a monetary donation? GDGH also always appreciate cloth diaper donations in good used condition as well. Need info on where to send your gently used cloth diapers? Click here.

As an added incentive GDGH has teamed up with three cloth diaper companies who will each be offering a prize to 1 donor (randomly picked from those who donate this month only).
