Spring 2012 Diaper Drive!

Leettle Hands and Feet is hosting their first diaper drive on March 1st, 2012! Who was picked to benefit from this awesome cause? The DFW Cloth Diaper Project! Here is a little more info. on what they do...

The DFW Cloth Diaper Project began as an idea in the fall 2010. In the summer of 2011, that idea became a reality! They collected donations to provide cloth diapers to families in the Dallas-Fort Worth area who are unable to afford expensive diapers. In November of 2012, they were able to begin helping local families!

They loan cloth diapers to qualifying families - FREE of charge! (they do ask for a donation of $30 for future replacement or repair if the family can afford it, but this is not required), as well as teach them how to use and care for them. Disposables are so expensive, and no family should have to make the choice between food and diapers. Their goal is to help them not have to worry about their baby's diapering needs.

Please donate to this cause! I have set up a private PayPal account specifically for this cause.



My goal? $1,000 to send 100 pocket diapers and 100 diaper covers with cloth pre-folds! Both the pocket diapers and covers are one-size, meaning that they are adjustable to fit a baby from about 8 lbs until 35 lbs or more.

This is enough to provide a full days worth of diaper changes for 20 babies from birth until potty training!

$1,000 would only buy approximately 1 year & 1/2 worth (if bought in cases of store brand diapers, which many people on tight budgets may not be able to afford) of diapers...for 1 baby!

Any, and all gifts are GREATLY appreciated!

How do I donate?

Simply go to the Leettle Hands and Feet Diaper Drive page and make a donation via the Paypal link at the bottom of the page. 100% of your donation will be used to purchase diapers, covers, and pre-folds for the DFW Cloth Diaper Project. All diapers will be purchased in one large order on April 1st so that I can receive the highest discount from my manufacturer by purchasing in bulk and to reduce the shipping cost.

You can also purchase diapers at www.leettlehandsandfeet.com to be sent to the DFW Cloth Diaper Project, but you MUST leave me a comment in the note to seller section, so that I do not send the diapers to your personal address given to me by Paypal. These diapers will be mailed in one big shipment on April 1st, 2012.



As an incentive to donate, I have collected sponsors to donate gifts for a giveaway as a "thank you". Go to my giveaways section of my blog on the right hand side to enter!
