Giving Diapers, Giving Hope- a non-profit cloth diaper lending organization- is announcing two new shipping partners for 2016.
Thirsties Inc, a respected cloth diaper brand that manufactures in Colorado, and Kelly’s Closet, one of the Internet’s earliest cloth diaper retailers based in Maine, have teamed up to handle the shipping and receiving for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.
Thirsties and Kelly’s Closet will be taking over the shipping and receiving duties that have been handled by GroVia since 2014.
In 2014 Giving Diapers, Giving Hope shipped a set of cloth diapers to more than 500 families. This past September GDGH shipped to 57 families- their busiest month to date.
GroVia is passing the torch to other companies who will follow the same model. Each company donates their warehouse space and their employees’ time to handle the shipping fulfillment for approved GDGH families.
Bobbi-Jean Palmer, owner of Kelly’s Closet regarding the new partnership “Our company [Kelly’s Closet] has always been a huge supporter of GDGH and their mission. We are looking forward to taking on a more hands on role with the organization to give reusable diapers to the families who need them.”
When GDGH partnered with GroVia they doubled, then tripled the number of families they were capable of helping each month. They couldn’t have grown without them! Now we are excited to see how partnering with companies in two locations will enable them to help more families.
From Kim Rosas, Executive Director GDGH “As our organization continues to grow and assist more families facing diaper need, it just makes sense to have TWO amazing companies shipping from different sides of the countries to keep shipping costs down for the families we’re helping. We are so thankful to have had such respected members of the cloth community so generously offer their help!”
Donors should begin shipping their donations to Thirsties or Kelly’s Closet while GroVia works through the diapers they have remaining in their Bozeman, Montana location. Please reference the Donate page to determine which location donations should be shipped to.
