Thursday Giveaway: Sharing is Caring
September 10, 2014 6:34 pm | by

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Sharing is caring.” It’s a simple mantra that, if practiced, can really make a difference. Whether you give away your time, your attention, your toys, your money, or even your cloth diapers, sharing is a way to build relationships and even help someone in need.

Our national cloth diaper bank, Share the Love, was created with the “sharing is caring” philosophy in mind. We work to share local resources and cloth diapers with low-income families, but we can’t do it without you. Every diaper we share with someone was generously shared with us.


For this week’s giveaway, we want to share a Flip Diaper One-Size Diaper Cover with two people. The winners will also receive an additional Econobum Cover to share with a friend, loved one or someone in need.

To enter, give us an example of “sharing is caring.”

Learn more about Share the Love here. If you are in need of assistance, please check the list of Share the Love host sites and, if you have a one in your area, click here to apply.

    As the President of a Cloth diaper charity branch we have lots of people come through with both success stories and not so successful stories well, our most successful client thus far has become such a good friend that after she was no longer on our program I brought her some diapers that never fit my son correctly. I just love her daughter and I absolutely Love seeing photos of her fluffy fab self in diapers I gave her!

    Sharing is caring could be anything that helps someone really. Sharing time, food, money, items, etc. I’m a big fan of paying it forward. For instance, someone gave me a crib to use for the baby I nanny. They don’t want it back. So I am donating it to the teen mothers shelter in our town.

    I sent three cloth diapers I didn’t need or use anymore to a mom who uses cloth and just had a second baby and didnt have enough diapers. I didn’t know her either I asked in a group if anyone knew a mama in need of cloth diapers. I found out those 3 diapers made the difference for her she no longer had to wash her diapers every day. It made me happy and she loved the diapers.

    We are a military family and have shared many times with others who need support while their loved ones are away, whether it be be company, a meal, or something more substantial. Sharing is the easiest way to show some that they matter. Thanks CB

    I have a friend from kenya who saw my sons diapers and loved them, so I am sharing some of my diaper covers with her to bring back to her friends and family in kenya next time she visits. She says they will be greatly appreciated there because so many people cannot afford disposable ddiapers there, and while they have strips of cloth they use, they do not have the waterproof covers.

    I think sharing is caring when your friends come over and make you dinner when your husband is out of town. Then you of course return the favor. We have the best friends, especially when family isn’t around!

    I’ve always since the birth of my son have paid out forward and have away many of his clothes he’d outgrown. I donated to GDGH for diaper need awareness week. Last Friday o took a friend grocery shopping because she was in need. And I’m always looking for ways to give back.

    Just two days ago I started talking to a mom at my son’s elementary school. It was the first time we’d met each other and she kindly offered me some boy clothing that her son has outgrown! She brought a bag of clothes the very next day! I also have a long-time friend that is expecting her first baby and she wants to cloth diaper. I told her she could borrow some of my diapers and try them out on her baby to see what she likes before buying more if she wants to!

  • Keziah B. said...
    September 11, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Sometimes the best way to show you care is by sharing your time. What I mean by this are things like volunteering, spending time with a friend who needs someone to talk to, helping someone move, or babysitting.

    ‘Sharing is caring’ is the phrase my household uses for things like TMI, when we’re sick, want someone else’s food, etc. (facetiously) 🙂

    In seriousness though, I plan to share my cloth diaper stash with my sister-in-law for her next child- she was planning to for her first but that kinda fell through and she had a couple Grovia shells still in their packaging a year later

    My best friend had fraternal twins who were born at 27 weeks, her and her fiancé lived at the NICU for 2 1/2 months. While they were there, I rounded up a ton of stuff from family and friends for them to use ( they didn’t have a baby shower) and even lent them my sons crib and swing. When they came home they had an actual nursery all set up! She cried and everything was wonderful!

    I am super grateful for my friend who introduced me to cloth diapering. I had only read about it online so it was cool to find someone who actually uses them. When I told her I was interested she brought me some of her favorite diapers and said I could keep them…. even though I was not pregnant yet. Definitely sharing is caring!
