There are a few great ladys out there that are trying to get diapers to low income familys and are low income themselves. They can't afford to get the thing where they can be nonprofit but they really are. There are running low on supplies and diapers ingeneral. If you have anything you are not using or just want to donate there is the website miraclediapers.com or you can go to diaperswappers and contact choose2bgr8 she is one of the leaders for miracle diapers. Like i said they can really use already made diapers but they will gladly take supplies anything you cna donate would make a great difference in somebodys life. It is a great program and if you want to donate you can at the website or get into contact with Amanda (choose2bgr8) or PM me and i can give you her address.<br>
Thanks everyone

I totally second this!!! I was going to post but didn't want to SPAM in the wrong area. I'm the "administrative assistant" for Miracle Diapers, it sounds so official <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> but it just means I help with email, answering questions and keeping a spreadsheet of all the drive donors, here's some more info I put together for MDC giving:<br><br>
Miracle diapers is a non propfit organization that provides cloth diapers to low income families. (<a href="http://www.miraclediapers.com" target="_blank">www.miraclediapers.com</a>) To celebrate their first full year of giving they are having a diaper drive. They have a new website explaining everything <a href="http://miraclediaperdrive.com/default.html" target="_blank">http://miraclediaperdrive.com/default.html</a> , what to send, where to send stuff, and the PRIZES you can win. Yes, prizes! If you donate useable diapers durring the drive you get entered into a prize drawing and you can get multiple entries based on the amount of your donation!<br><br>
AND if you gave to Miracle Diapers earlier in 2006, do not feel left out. Look here <a href="http://miraclediaperdrive.com/wst_page2.html" target="_blank">http://miraclediaperdrive.com/wst_page2.html</a> for info on how your donation can still count towards some AWSOME prizes. Thank you for supporting such a great cause.<br><br>

I know Amanda makes diapers and would <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> to recieve any fabrics that could help her with this, but I'm not sure if that would count towards an entry in the donation drive drawing because the are looking for useable condition diapers, doublers, wipes, pins ect. right now. During the rest of the year that acctept ANY diapers in ANY condition. I will ask Ruth about whether fabric contributions will count towards drawing entries right now and will let you guys know. This is a really great cause and any help is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions you can post here and if I can't answer them I will get an answer for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thanks so much for that info! I'm sure that all of us compulsive-diaper-sewers, pattern-adjusters, fabric-over-purchasers, style-experimenters and baby-lovers all have at least a diaper or two that just didn't turn out the way we were hoping (maybe the fit, the fabric, the closure style just wasn't right for us or our babe), soooo why not send them off and bless someone else? Besides, the less diapers we have sitting around, the more reason we have to continue buying fabric and sewing new and improved dipes... and we all love that idea... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I have a pile to send, but I wanted to fix them up a little bit first. I need to put hook tape on the wings too! I'm glad you posted this! I hope they get a ton of diapers this month!

i just figured since you guys love to make diapers you may need a reason to make a few extra. Or make some new ones for yourself and send them old first trys off. They will take most anything that is in usable condition.

This troubles me because I emailed Ruth at Miracle Diapers yesterday and asked her if she wanted some diapers that I'd made that were less than perfect but still very useable yet too small for my dd. I even sent her pictures of them. I got no answer as of tonight.

I heard that she's having some health issues right now, plus the diaper drive keeps her prrdy busy I suppose!

I don't really know about stains, but I imagine they'd be ok. I believe they wash and sanitize everything before it goes out to a family. For the diaper drive, they have to be useable, but I don't know how that relates to stains.

I don't mind not being put in for prizes, but I don't want them to not get used, since I know I could find someone that would take them and use them. kwim?<br><br>
