The Cloth Diaper Foundation was founded as Miracle Diapers in Oregon in January of 2005 to fill a need. There were many families who wanted to cloth diaper their children for health, economical, and environmental reasons but could not due to financial restrictions. After an overwhelming response, two more chapters were opened by the end of that year.
This 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 their wish to be a family’s sole source for cloth diapers; rather, they assist families while they build their own supply of diapers. They accept donations given by caring individuals and redistribute them to families in need.
Their goal is to someday have representatives all over the United States. Through this they hope to not only be able to serve thousands of families in need, but to be able to educate the public on today’s cloth diapers and therefore helping cloth become more mainstream. Please check out their Volunteer page if you are interested in becoming part of the movement!
HOW TO: There is a link up at the top - Application for Assistance - you do have to apply and there are certain eligibility requirements. Filling out an application does not guarantee approval for a diaper package.
