September 8-14, 2014 is Diaper Need Awareness week. This event was started by the National Diaper Bank Network to recognize the diaper gap in America. Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is part of the solution to diaper need. They’ve helped over 600 families and shipped nearly 11,000 cloth diapers to qualified families for just the cost of shipping since we began in 2011.
To raise awareness about Diaper Need and help more families get the cloth diapers GDGH provides we are #GivingHope September 8-16! We want to challenge YOU to pick ONE cloth diaper in good used condition, or new condition to send to us. For many of you it won’t be much of a challenge. We also want your donation to inspire others so if you’d like, post a photo to Instagram! Here is how:
1. Take a photo of you with a diaper in an envelope addressed to:
C/O The Natural Baby Co
1203 North Rouse Unit 3E
Bozeman MT 59715
2. Cover your return address with your hand or a sticker using an app in your phone.
3. Post to Instagram and include the hashtags #givinghope and #diaperneed. Tag 3 friends.
4. Cross your fingers an elf finds you!
As an organization that relies on donations to keep up with the growing demand of families looking to use cloth diapers but who can’t afford that start-up cost, your ONE diaper will add up with the other donations to make a BIG impact! This past July we helped over 40 families and shipped 700+ cloth diapers. August is on target to help over 40 families as well! Every donation counts.
To show our appreciation for your donations we will also be randomly selecting some donors who use those hashtags with their photos. Kim, our Executive Director and owner of Dirty Diaper Laundry, and her elves will be performing RAOK to those selected. The RAOK could take the form of new cloth diapers (ahem…. There may be a Spence and Marie in the bag of treats), accessories, or E-Gifts from supporting companies. It is our way of thanking some of those who donate. Please make sure you have made your profile public so that our elves can find you by searching the #givinghope hashtag on Instagram.
Photos must be posted during Diaper Need Awareness week, September 8-16.
