Mircale Diapers is now....The Cloth Diaper Foundation!

~Breaking News~

Many of you are familiar with Miracle Diapers and all the fabulous work they've done assisting families in need. Well now Miracle Diapers will be known as The Cloth Diaper Foundation!

As Miracle Diapers has grown so has the number of families they assist. In 2009, they helped over 450 babies directly, more than 100 babies through sponsorship and local distribution, and assisted other charities with the same mission as well!


To better serve those families Miracle Diapers reaccessed it's structure and practices.


They have:


New leadership with Roxanna Jolly—CEO and Lisa Johnston—Operations Manager and Board Chair

Relocated their headquarters to Katy, Texas

Restructured how they process and accept applications

Opened a retail store for fundraising

Founded a new membership program

Welcomed several new board members from the cloth diapering industry.


In it's fifth year Miracle Diapers wants to continue moving forward and has decided to take on a new name that better describes the organization and it's mission.

Miracle Diapers is now The Cloth Diaper Foundation.


We felt that a more appropriate name would help the community have a better understanding of who we are, as we have often been mistaken for a diaper manufacturer. Our desire to move forward and build a legacy of support for the cloth diapering community will be reflected in our new name: The Cloth Diaper Foundation.

-Roxanna Jolly, CEO, The Cloth Diaper Foundation


Monetary donations fell last year do to the economy. Which means there are more families out there for The Cloth Diaper Foundation to help! While diaper donations are always appreciated, we must be able to financially support organizational growth. Let's make this happen together and spread the CD love. Visit http://clothdiaperfoundation.org today to find out how you can help!

Special Offer:
To assist in fund raising efforts, in the month of February, Tracy Whittemore and Lisa Adkins from The Cloth Diaper Company have so graciously offered to match, product for product, each Cloth Diaper Company product sold (Drybees, Wahmies, Rocky Mountain Diapers) in The Cloth Diaper Foundation Retail Store with an equal donation to our organization. (Example - Purchase a Rocky Mountain Diapers OS Pocket, CDC will donate our organization a RMD OS Pocket, Drybees for Drybees, etc.)

It is amazing what the Cloth Diaper Foundation is doing!! I was wondering if you all knew when their website will be up and running or if you know of a different way to contact the organization. I have a friend in desperate need of assistance with diapers. She is going through a really rough time right now and is not able to afford diapers (thankfully right now she is getting alittle help from her church but she needs more), I have been trying to find an organization that will help her get started in cding. Thanks for all you help!!

Emily. CDF has had to move states and is currently closed due to having to relocate their non-profit status. I don't know when they'll re-open but you can direct your friend and any other interested people to Giving Diapers Giving Hope. I believe their website is http://www.givingdiapersgivinghope.org/. Hope this helps!
