Barrie, ON (PRWEB) April 20, 2013
For cloth diaper enthusiasts, rare and out of print diapers are kind of a big deal. Because of this, Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is donating the very last of their retired prints to be auctioned off in support of the cloth diaper charity Cloth for a Cause. Bidding will start on the Glow Bug Cloth Diapers Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/glowbugclothdiapers on Saturday April 20th at 9am EST and will close at 9pm EST the same day. 22 retired print diapers will be auctioned off individually with a minimum starting bid of $15 per diaper with postage paid. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to Cloth for a Cause.
Cloth for a Cause is a Canadian cloth diaper charity dedicated to providing quality, sustainable cloth diapers for those in need. Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is a supporter and sponsor of Cloth for a Cause and several other cloth diaper related charities. Cloth for a Cause says that cloth diapers are so important for struggling families because " the cost of disposable diapers and wipes is at $2,700 from birth to toddler hood. The cost of laundering cloth diapers for that amount of time comes in at around $585.00. While buying cloth diapers is more economical, not many low income parents have $300-$500 to spend on cloth diapers for their little ones all at once. When you consider that the spending budget meant to cover food, diapers, and everything other then rent for a mother and child on assistance is 250-300, it seems to make more sense to pay $45 per month on a pack of disposables."
For anyone interested in making a donation, Cloth for a Cause is always in need of:
- financial donations (to cover costs of shipping, fabric, snaps, velcro, etc.)
- repairable, well loved diapers (elastic stretched, repelling, etc)
- materials (cottons, bednsheets, PUL, elastic, fold over elastic, etc.)
- time and labor to help create cloth diapers or repair them
