It’s been a dream of mine to honor these special heart babies, and February felt like the perfect time.
St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) February 16, 2017
Cotton Babies, Inc. has caught the love bug! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the natural parenting retail store and manufacturer, along with its customers, is making a donation of over $14,500 from the sales of a new cloth diaper design affectionately called “Be Mine” to The Children’s Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of Congenital Heart Defects.
Cotton Babies’ loyal customers were excited to raise money for such a worthy cause. The new print features red, pink and black hearts and arrows on a white background. The print was a hit with customers, and most styles sold out within a single day. Be Mine was created in honor of a few special little members of the company’s Facebook group, Cotton Babies: The Mob, who were born with Congenital Heart Defects.
By modernizing cloth diapers with easy-to-use designs and adorable prints like Be Mine, the company has made strides in recent years to make cloth diapers mainstream again.
“We’re excited to kick off the year with a loveable print. It’s been a dream of mine to honor these special heart babies, and February felt like the perfect time. Cloth diapers are no longer just about safety pins and plastic pants, the new designs are stylish, as easy to use as disposable diapers, and easier on parents’ wallets,” said Jennifer Labit, Cotton Babies founder & CEO. In fact, switching to cloth diapers can save a family up to $1200 from birth – potty training.
“We are honored to receive such a generous donation from Cotton Babies," said William Foley, Executive Director of The Children’s Heart Foundation. "The research this donation will fund will have an impact on the 40,000 babies born each year, in the U.S., with a congenital heart defect. It is through the continued funding of research that we will find the answers to long standing questions about CHDs, the most common birth defect in the world."
