Arrow Diapers for orphans

A few weeks back, a mama here bought 2 of my dipes and requested that I send them to Bekah at Cotton Babies for the missionaries. I thought that was great. So I started putting things aside to send myself. I have a few good dipes and covers. Well today I was reading that there is a shortage of cloth diapers in several third world countries and they have to PL their children by 3 months. I think this is sad. Why not have a diaper drive. If we each pitched in 1 dipe, pf or cover think of how many children that would benefit. I do not know if one of the mods could take it from here and I am thinking of PMing that first mama so she can organize (or myself) but whatever gets dipes to children who need them.

Re: Diapers for Charity.

These children need them more than my daughter. I will donate several diapers and covers and for every diaper I buy my dd, I will buy one for this cause.

Re: Diapers for Charity.

I know of a couple of orphanages that could use them oversees.
The best way will probably be to get them in contact with some one in the US that can transport them overseas. That way shipping won't get outrageous for everyone and everything thing.
Let me see what I can get set up if more people are interested .. or just if a few are too

PL is potty training. Can you even imagine, needing to train them so young. Very sad. I know there is a mom on DS who lives overseas on a base. If there is a need in that country, we could ship them to her APO addy. USA shipping cost. I am going to by hallf dozen pf's for my dd, so I will buy half dozen for this.

I would rather give to orphans. In poor ophanages, the babies do not have CD's or sposies.
