It's about time for another AWESOME twitter party! Cloth for Everybum, a Cloth Diaper Charity servicing a 2 hour radius from Savannah, Georgia is sponsoring a Twitter Party and Auction! Cloth for Everybum is different from other Cloth Diaper Charities because they require that every mom or dad receiving a cloth diaper kit (24 diapers + accessories) attends a Cloth Diapering 101 class. This is a brilliant idea. Cloth diapers may be a foreign concept to many parents, and a simple class could "make or break" their ability to succeed with cloth diapering. In addition this class will provide an open-ended resource if there are any further problems or questions in the future. Below are some pictures of the kits that are handed out to these cloth diapering parents. Every month the first 5 people in need who QUALIFY and attend a class will receive their own kit. To date, Cloth for Everybum has handed out over 42 Cloth Diaper Kits. This means that 42 families attended a Cloth Diaper 101 class. That is great! I can tell you that I have personally had the opportunity to meet the ladies who head up Cloth for Everybum and got a glimpse into all the time and efforts that they put into what they do. I was so impressed with their enthusiasm to spread awareness about cloth diapers.
I love their mission statement:"If you teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime. Our mission is not simply to give free diapers to low income families, but to teach the families how to use them. Scheduled Cloth Diapering 101 classes are mandatory for all kit recipients. For recipients in the Mentoring sub-program, a mentor will be matched to the family and follow them for a period of time."
As of 2013, Cloth for Everybum has become a lending diaper charity. This means that they will still accept used cloth diaper donations, but many of those donations will be fixed and re-sold on swap and trade pages. The funds are then funneled back into cloth kits containing 18 prefolds, 2 inserts, 3 covers, 4 pocket diapers, 12 handmade wipes, 1 wetbag, 1 salve sample, and 1 detergent sample. Cloth for Everybum purchases quality products cheaply from coops so that the money is used as wisely and as effectively as possible. The reason that the used diapers are re-sold is because a lot of the time Cloth for Everybum can get more money from selling a used higher-end diaper and double the amount of diapers they buy with that money, thus helping more families.
The charity hopes that recipients will be able to use the 24 diapers provided in their kit for several months in order to save money from not buying disposable diapers. Then the family may choose to purchase their own cloth diapers of a type they prefer so they will have their own by the time they return the kit they received. Once the kits are returned, they are sanitized and and prepared for the next family in need.
Cloth for Everybum will accept brand new, or excellent used condition cloth diapers and cloth diapering accessories of any kind. This can include but is not limited to:
- Pocket diapers
- Cloth wipes
- Cloth diaper safe rash cream
- Cloth diaper safe laundry detergent
