When you combine Mid Century Modern + cloth diapers + supporting my favorite charity it = my new favorite cloth diaper print!
Smart Bottoms announced their newest print, Jax & Jill, that is an atomic inspired print in bold, retro colors. The print will ONLY be available at MommyCon locations this year and for each diaper sold a generous $5 donation will be made to the cloth diaper charity Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.
Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is a non-profit cloth diaper lending organization. GDGH helps approved families all over the US by shipping them a set of cloth diapers for the cost of shipping. Since 2011 GDGH has been making it possible to cloth diaper without the high start-up cost that so many families can’t possibly afford. Since cloth diapers are reusable, the families using this program will no longer have to worry about how they will afford to buy the next package of diapers. It’s a fantastic charity that helped over 500 families in 2014!
It’s no secret that I volunteer as the Executive Director for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope and I was so thankful to learn that Smart Bottoms wanted to support our charity with their print. I am also involved with MommyCon this year- the Cloth Diaper Resource Center is where I’ll be this year, chatting with new parents and parents-to-be who are interested in cloth diapering. I’ll also be teaching a session on reusable menstrual options.
To say I am excited about this print is an understatement! I love the pattern (not just saying that) and I’d totally take the fabric and make (waterproof) pillows out of them for my vintage turquoise sectional any day.
GDGH is so grateful for this collaboration and the money raised will be going towards our ongoing effort to reduce the shipping fee that approved families pay from $35 to $20. We are striving to help more families get the reusable and sustainable diapers they need and Smart Bottoms is going to be a big part of that.
If you can’t get to a MommyCon location this year I would join the Smart Bottoms fan group to find out if there will be any members coordinating group buys.
