The cloth diapering community is a very small (but growing) community that is more than just diapers. We love the opportunity to connect with our customers and those customers in need. While we aren't always able to help all organizations that reach out to us for help, we have partnered with one very special organization that is dear to us.
Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is a non-profit organization that helps put cloth diapers in the homes of families who cannot afford diapers for their children. Their program is run entirely on donations (both financial and cloth diaper donations) from members of the cloth diapering community and from retailers and brands.
In December of 2014, we officially partnered with Giving Diapers Giving Hope to help take over some of their shipping duties. We're not alone in this partnership, Thirsties is also sharing these shipping duties with us. Thirsties and Kelly’s Closet are the official shipping partners for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. All donations for the organization can be shipped to us (or Thirsties) and we will send those diapers to a family in need. GDGH sends us a list of all applicants that have been approved and we pack up their diapers and ship them to those families.
In addition, we have a way that you can help by shopping with us. We’ve created a coupon code that will be active most days, DONATE. Instead of entering the current coupon code for the day, you’ll enter coupon code DONATE and we’ll set your free diaper aside to send to a family in need! The minimum order amounts will be the same as the current coupon code.
We have also set up a Baby Registry for Giving Diapers Giving Hope with some common items that are needed. If you search our Baby Registry for "Giving Diapers Giving Hope" in the "Registry Name" field, you'll find the complete list of items that you can purchase from us for these donations. You will earn Diaper Dollars for your order, but instead of shipping to you, we'll add these items to our donation stock for Giving Diapers Giving Hope.
If you would like to donate a gently used cloth diaper, cover, or any diapering accessories you can ship them directly to us at Giving Diapers Giving Hope DONATIONS c/o DiaperShops, 141 Western Ave, South Paris, ME 04281 or if you are closer to Thirsties you can ship to them as well.
If you are a family in need of diapers, you can learn more and apply to receive cloth diapers at Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.
