Best place to donate diapers?

I have a whole stash of BG 3.0s that are in usable condition, but I don't want to sell them. What are some good places to donate diapers to where they will be used for a good cause?

Thanks!

I know there are many out there but my wife is working with this couple who is going to Africa next year as part of working with World Orphans organization. I'd definitely contact her first if not my wife (KimA here).

good idea

No idea though.

Many families I know who would be struggling to pay for diapers, don't have washers and work multiple jobs so getting to laundromats/handwashing is too time consuming.

good luck!

You could put them up free for shipping for a mama in need if you're willing to ship.

If you are interested in donating I have an acquaintance who is struggling to buy diapers who I know would be interested in ffs, if you go that route.

Hi,
What about a woman's shelter that takes ladies with children? Can't think of anyone who might need them more.

Contact local churches to see if any upcoming mission trips can take them.

Re: Best place to donate diapers?

The lady who writes dirty diaper laundry works with this charity:
http://www.givingdiapersgivinghope.org/
I haven't personally worked with them, but what I can gather from her site it's who she donates extra diapers too.
I'd love to hear any other sites too.

The cloth diaper foundation takes donations of usable cloth diapers and let's people try them out. They must meet income guidelines, and they have strict rules about how the diapers are returned so others can use them... basically a way for people that may not otherwise be able to afford diapers to use them.
