Local C4EB Lending Sites
As a recipient, you will receive a FREE cloth diaper lending kit, with amounts and types of diapers tailored to the gender and age of your child(ren). You will also be partnered with a mentor, ideally one who shares some things in common with you. For example if you have a 1 year old boy and work full time, we will try to partner you with a mentor who also has a boy and worked full time while cloth diapering. This is not always possibly, of course, but shared experiences do make for a better mentoring relationship. In this case, you might have questions about using cloth at daycare that a stay-at-home mother might not be able to answer. This duly noted, we choose mentors based on location first, and commonalities second. Your mentor within 30 minutes of you, so that if necessary you can conveniently meet in person for on-the-spot help. Our mentors have all been cloth diapering for at least 6 months, have been trained by senior Cloth for Everybum volunteers, and are overseen by a leaders at their site.
This lending kit is lent by Cloth for Everybum, Inc. to your family for a duration of 6 months, beginning on the date you receive your kit at Distribution. If you know that you will not be living within a 90 min radius of your site within the next 6 months, please do not apply for the local program.
We hope that recipients will be able to use the 24-36 diapers provided in their kit for several months in order to save money from not buying disposable diapers. At the end of the lending period, volunteers can help families locate diapers in their price range to purchase.
