cloth for the coast

i saw this on facebook a couple days ago and thought i'd share it with all of you. we cloth diaper mainly with fuzzi bunz diapers and saw that the company is organizing aid to help clean up wildlife that have been rescued in the gulf coast oil spill. they are collecting baby blankets, towels, cloth diaper inserts, prefolds, etc. here is a description from their facebook page:

Thank you for your desire to help with donations to help clean up our precious wildlife that is being killed, damaged and rescued along the Gulf Coast.

While we agree that BP should pay for and get supplies where needed - this is not going to happen and not going to happen in a timely fashion to save the lives of those directly injured.

One of the most used and needed products is towels, baby blankets and other items that must be disposed of to clean up the animals.

If you are not aware, Mother of Eden, LLC - makers of FuzziBunz Diapers- is located in Louisiana and founder Tereson Dupuy is directly involved with several organizations aiding in wildlife rescue. They are taking donations of old baby blankets, old prefolded diapers (not new) and old diaper inserts for pocket diapers (microfiber, cotton, hemp etc).

These supplies will be organized in their Louisiana warehouse and distributed with the help of Fedex who is donating the shipping to the agencies that request them on an ongoing basis.

This is not a situation that will end soon - all of your help and donations are appreciated.

To find other ways that you can help please visit www.communityforthecoast.org to view other ways that you (our worldwide community) can get involved.
