donating diapers

Hey all.
I have some diapers which I have had up on FSOT for some time, and I at this point don't think anyone is going to bite.

I was thinking of donating them if I can, to help someone out who you know, could use them? But seeing as I am in Canada, I don't know where I could do that.

I mean I could put them up on Freecycle (we don't have a Craigslist here!) but I was curious - is there any other places I could donate them to? There's nothing wrong with them, I guess no one wants to buy them > <
I have pockets, covers and I think an AIO or two...

Thoughts?

Re: donating diapers

The only one I can think of is miracle diapers.. I surely wouldn't put them on Freecycle. People would just get them to try and sell them I'm sure.. if you wanted to do that, you should just stick them on the FFS board here.

Re: donating diapers

Miracle Diapers hopes to open a chapter in Canada this year, so you could hold onto them until then, or you could send them to one of our US chapters now. We pay shipping for those can't manage it.

Contact info @ MiracleDiapers .org for more details.

Warmly,

Ruth Buchholz
Miracle Diapers
Executive Director

Re: donating diapers

I also gave some diapers away here. I had moms in need email me and tell me why they needed one. I tried to keep it "in the family."

Re: donating diapers

I am in Canada as well and if you are near a city you could contact the local women's centres or universities, often mama's in need check there for clothing and baby supplies. I am in Winnipeg and volunteered at a local womens centre and I never saw any abuse there (ie people looking for diapers to resell).
