Hi Ladies! I saw awhile back that you wonderful ladies were donating diapers to needy moms. Well, I've got some dipes and covers and I was going to sell them on Ebay, but I just have this feeling like I should donate them. They are not perfect, but have lots of life in them. Can anyone point me in the right direction? This is what I have:
6 very fluffy fleece liners--washed, but never used.
6 Diaper basic fitted diapers, cute patterns, some faded, but still work fine
1 small Didee Snug fitted diaper
2 medium pink A Better World Company diaper covers
1 Gold Bug medium, clown pattern cover
7 hemp (I think) contour diapers with thick, padded middle.
Thanks for all your help!
So sorry if this is something that shouldn't be posted here
Jaci

What a great cause! I will hold onto my dipes and donate them when we are done.

I actually want to set up something similar for crisis pregnancy centers in america.

I've always got so many things on the back burner...KWIM??

You could post them on the trading post too. I bet there are MDC mamas in need as well.

I am in need, me me!!!
I am really wanting to go to cloth. I have been picking up dipers here and there. BUt I spent 40 $ on 2 new dipers and it was way to much after the exchange and shipping and stuff
We are moving to a remote island off the coast of Vancover island( we just finalixed the plans) and they don't have garbage faciliteis sooo THE only opion is for me to use cloth ( I want to anyway, I did with my frist)
My ds is almost 9 months about 20 lbs I would guess he is a med to large.
So if anyboday has dipers they would like to donate to me please pm me
I would be able to pay shipping with paypal.
wishiwas~ I would love to recive whatever you have that will fit my boy
THANK YOU
Elizabeth

Do you sew? If you can even sew a little, you could make some excellent diapers for hardly anything.

Melissa - I've always wanted to do the same thing! I've toyed with the idea of stashing cast-off dressers in our store basement to fill with AP mama stuff - cloth diapers, a sling, some nursing clothes, and basic baby stuff - and just letting the crisis pregnancy center know I have them available. I was told that they don't take cloth diapers normally, because the mom's don't want them There's GOT to be *some* that want them!

So the Kind Hearted Woman mom RUNS an orphanage?!? I wanna hear more about that!
