The Real Diaper Association NEEDS YOUR HELP!

The Real Diaper Association sent out a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT to read out to its members and email list with an important request. The RDA (Real Diaper Association) continues to grow, organize and play a leading role in the cloth diaper movement.

If you are not already familiar with RDA, it trains and supports grassroots advocates in leading local Real Diaper Circles, compiles and distributes research on cloth diapering and leading cloth diaper advocacy, it works with media and other businesses and organizations to increase awareness about cloth diapers, and provides direct, reliable and unbiased support for consumers.

RDA could not manage all of this work without the donations of the RDA members. If you haven't already, consider joining RDA as a member. The annual individual membership is only $25; all donations are tax-deductibe. Membership ensures you are kept up-to-date with RDA's work and receive the quarterly print newsletter.

Recent Accomplishments Due to An Active Executive Director

In the past year RDA has been able to accomplish a good deal because they have had the good luck to employ an Executive Director. Some of the accomplishments were:
  • the launch of a cloth-diaper-friendly daycare directory and publication of a tip sheet on using cloth diapers in daycare,
  • a blog carnival focused on Real Diaper Facts that highlighted some of the most useful research out there on the benefits of cloth diapers, and
  • the ongoing 100% reusable cloth diapers campaign to support people and choosing and using real diapers in any situation.

Additionally, there are 15 active Real Diaper Circles and nearly 100 volunteers in training to become Leaders across the U.S. and Canada.

Funding an Executive Director Position at RDA

RDA has plans to accomplish much more in the upcoming year, but in order to do so, they need to continue funding an Executive Director position.

For those who have been supportive on an individual level, spreading the news about cloth diapering to friends and family, now may be the time to become a member of the Real Diaper Association. You help RDA fund an Executive Director position and RDA helps you expand your advocacy efforts!

RDA Anniversary- August 11, 2010

The Real Diaper Anniversary needs to raise $3500 in 35 days - before its 6th Anniversary on August 11, 2010. With your help, contributions, membership renewals, and spreading the message by word of mouth or on your blogs/websites, RDA is confident it can meet its objective.

Remember, all contributions and donations to the Real Diaper Association are tax-deductible!

Real Diaper Association Mission Statement

The Real Diaper Association is a collective non-profit organization in which parents and small businesses take the lead in creating a cultural shift to increase the use of simple, reusable cloth diapers. We connect current cloth diapering parents to the long history of cloth diapering. Cloth diapers are real diapers. The Association organizes local advocates and activists for cloth diapers through a member-supported resource center which plans campaigns, trains organizers, distributes educational information, supports local groups, and connects users to the U.S. Cloth Diaper industry. Local Real Diaper Circles reach users face-to-face with knowledge and tools to make cloth diapering accessible and acceptable to U.S. parents, who have the power to change the world one baby at a time.
