Run by a small board of directors, this nonprofit organization is "dedicated to helping qualifying families all over the continental United States get a jump start on cloth diapering."  This foundation provides much needed help as families try to build a diaper stash.

  • AIO/AI2/Pocket/Fitted/Contour/Prefold/Flat/Etc. Diapers
  • Cloth Trainers (not Gerber or plastic pant trainers)
  • Inserts/Doublers/Liners
  • PUL/Fleece/Wool/Nylon (higher quality)  Covers
  • Wipes/Wetbags/Pail Liners/Wool Wash/Lanolin/Wipe Solution
