Giving Diapers, Giving Hope was founded by Kristen McCarthy.

She went through a very hard time financially, with literally no money coming in to support her children.  Through her struggles, she realized how much she was thankful for her cloth diaper stash, during these hard times. As she was washing her diapers one day, she thought to herself,

“Thank goodness I cloth diaper because if I didn’t I wouldn’t even know how I could buy my children diapers!”

She began realizing that there were no federally funded programs for cloth diapers, and if she didn’t have cloth, she would have no means to diaper her children.

What did other low-income families do if they didn’t cloth diaper!??!

How would did they get by??

These thoughts led Kristen to start a non-profit organization with her good friend Emily, called Giving Diapers, Giving Hope “which lends cloth diapers to low income families to help lessen the burden of diapering their babies and hopefully put the money they save towards bills, food and clothing.”

 “We founded GDGH in April 2011 and we are excited about all of the families we have been able to help, just through donations alone. We have gotten a good amount of donations, but we obviously are still needing more so we can help as many families as possible. Along with providing diapers to needy families, we are also providing cloth diapering education and support for the duration of the family borrowing the diapers. Our hope is that it is as positive experience as possible for each family. We are also going to try to provide them with as many cloth diapering accessories as possible, such as wetbags, snappi’s, cloth diaper detergent, etc.

This is a really exciting project for me because it obviously hits very close to home. I am aware that some of the people we are helping might be in a better financial situation than I am, but there are many ways we can be struggling. Even though I am still struggling financially, having the Giving Diapers, Giving Hope Foundation has given me so much hope, regardless of my financial situation and I hope that by helping out other struggling families and by alleviating some of their financial stress, this will provide them with hope as well.”
