Cloth Diaper Drive! RDA is thrilled to announce the first annual Cloth Diaper Drive organized by Miracle Diapers. The drive will run for the entire month of March. Disposable diaper drives are held all over the US to help families in poverty, but Ruth Buchholz of Miracle Diapers does not feel that is the solution for her community; it only adds to the problem.
"Our goal is not just to provide the start up of cloth diapers to low income families, but to offer education on why cloth diapers are a better choice."
Miracle Diapers started in February, 2005. One year later, with the help of many donors, they have helped to diaper over 100 babies in cloth. Now Miracle Diapers is expanding; currently there are 3 chapters nationwide, all working together to help cloth diaper the world!
Though they accept donations throughout the year, during the month of March the goal is to bring in as many donations as possible. For added incentive during the month of March, each donor will qualify for several random prize drawings! For more information and rules, visit their website at: http://www.miraclediapers.com.

Cloth Diapering Advocacy
Taking it one step further, you can create a 'calling card' with contact
information and hand it out to expectant parents or to families you know in
your neighborhood. Don't have time or the ability to create a calling
card? Use one of our Cloth Diapering Advocacy Postcards
and write your name and contact information on the back. Be available
for in-house cloth diapering lessons once a new baby is born. Be your
community's Cloth Diapering 'Go-To' person - making yourself available for
follow-up questions and answers once baby is home.
