The Rebecca Foundation, a non-profit organization, has a new chapter based in Unionville, MO.
The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet opened its doors in August 2012 in Maryville, Tennessee founded by Rebecca, who was only 9-years-old at the time, who had the simple idea to help others. With the help of her mother, Amanda La Bell, who was inspired & motivated by a simple question from her daughter, “Mom, why aren’t more families using cloth diapers?” Rebecca came to learn that not all families struggling with diaper need have access to cloth diapers or are able to afford the upfront cost to make the transition from disposable diapers to cloth diapers. So from that moment forward she wanted to make a change and help those families in need.
The foundation provides cloth diapers to families who are struggling and living from paycheck to paycheck, and want to make the switch to cloth but can’t afford the upfront cost to do so. The foundation helps to offset the expense by loaning diapers free of cost for 1 year. This allows families to save money, while slowly building up their own personal supply of cloth diapers. When they have reached this goal, they then return the loaned diapers so that they can benefit another family in need.
Having a chapter in this area gives the Foundation families a support line to make the transition easy. We are always here to help and answer any questions that may arise around cloth diapering. Their goal is to serve clients in any way they can with integrity, respect, and accountability.
