Ok. So this is a really strange way to start a blog. The truth is I've been working on/ throwing some ideas around for quite awhile, but have thus far failed to "take the plunge." Well somethings got me energized this morning and I just HAVE to at least try to make a difference.
Have you heard of the Real Diaper Association (RDA)? If not, first visit here and find out about the awesome things that this great organization is doing. The thing that breaks my heart is that unless the RDA can raise $2781 in the next five days, they will lose their executive director!
Here's where you come in: I first heard about the RDA and their #3500in35days from @ecochicparties where she threw a kickoff event for the fundraiser. As part of the party, Kanga Care, creators of Rumparooz Clothdiapers, generously donated a 12 pack of their OS solids in snaps and I was the lucky winner! If you haven't had the joy of experiencing these AMAZING diapers, please visit here to learn more. I received one diaper in every color! Seeing as I only have boys, and the hubcap would not approve of dawning their bums in "girly" colors, I have an Amethyst and Tulip diaper up for grabs! SO, would YOU like to win?!?
Here's the rules: This is a RAFFLE to benefit the RDA. To enter, please consider donating to the #3500in35days fund here. For every dollar you donate, leave me a comment (so if you donate $5, please leave me 5 comments). Make sure to also include your email addie so I can contact ya if you win (or twitter ID if you are more comfortable that way). The Raffle will run from today through Wed., Aug. 11 at noon Eastern time. Open to US residents only. All donations made to the RDA are tax-deductible. I will use random.org to choose a winner from the comments at 12:01 PM eastern time on the 11th. The above link gives a $10 minimum donation, but donations via paypal directly to the RDA also count.

I know it's a long shot, but I'm a believer in miracles and I KNOW we can make this happen! If you are passionate about #clothdiapers, please considering entering the raffle and you could win two AMAZING OS diapers while you're at it- a win-win :) Thanks for participating!
