The holiday season is quickly approaching. It's a time to be thankful while also extending a hand  to those who are less fortunate.

Share the Love was created to help needy families — all year round. It's a locally-sustainable, nationally-accessible cloth diaper bank that provides families with cloth diapers.

With more than 50 host sites in the U.S., Share the Love continues to grow and fight poverty in local communities.

For this week's giveaway, we want to Share the Love.

Two people will win a Flip One-Size Diaper Cover and a pack of Flip Disposable Inserts. But to help share the love even more, the same two winners will receive an additional Flip cover and pack of disposable inserts to give to someone who could use the gift of cloth diapers.

To enter, comment below by telling us what Share the Love means to you.

    Sharing the love to me means paying it forward. Sharing with others the love and blessings that I have in my life in other ways, donating time, money, and sharing the good as much as I can

    Sharing the love to me means helping others in need when you can. Giving things you no longer need/want to those less fortunate even when youre barely making it and COULD make money off those things.. It warms my heart seeing the smile of someone given something they need and knowing that their heart has just felt that same warmth :)

    Share the love to me is an amazing program that makes life easier by providing diapers to those who would otherwise be spending large amounts on disposables. It makes living on a budget easier because you drop the weekly cost of disposables.

    Sharing the love to me means sharing knowledge of how easy using cloth really is. I really don’t know if I would have tried it if it hadn’t been for a helpful stranger sharing her knowledge with me and answering my questions. I had been researching getting started with cloth online and I was feeling so overwhelmed and I was pretty nervous about giving it a try but a friend of mine gave me the name of a friend of hers that had cloth diapered her two kids. I contacted her on facebook and just being able to talk to an actual real person – someone that was just like me – made me feel so much more confident. Now that I have been doing it for a few months I tell my family and friends about how easy it has been for me and let them know that if they ever have any questions I would be glad to talk

  • Sarah Hayes said...

    Sharing the love to me means giving another family the opportunity to fall in love with cloth! My sister in law is expecting a new baby and has expressed interest in cloth diapers, but is intimidated by all the start up costs. Thank you for the chance at such a wonderful giveaway :)

  • Sara B said...

    Share the love means exactly that…sharing the love and blessings I have been given with others! I love the idea of helping parents who desire to use cloth, but may not be able to afford it! Helping them with something as small as a diaper donation can sometimes give families a little breathing room.

  • Annette said...

    Share the Love, for me, is proof that it takes a village to raise a child. We all depend on each other and those who are in need sometimes have to depend on others. I am proud to be apart of a program that allows a community to pull together to help one another. It shows that some kindness and a group of amazing volunteers can truly make an impact! I love to give my time and love, and Share the Love is my way of helping sometime that I used to be! We had to wait to switch to cloth until we could swing it. Every need was a struggle and no one should struggle for diapers. I hope I can help alleviate some of the stress that buying diapers can bring, as I know it would have been a godsend for me as a needy young mom.

    Sharing the Love of cloth diapering is teaching other parents that CDs are not scary or difficult, and are completely worth the *little* extra work. Not only are they easy on the wallet and environment, have NO chemicals going on our babies’ bums, but they are ADORABLE!

    To me, Share the Love means providing what I deem as a necessity in my life to someone else who cannot afford it. This is why our family participates in food drives, regularly gives items to the Crisis Pregnancy Center and homeless shelters, etc. When I learned 1 in 3 women struggle to afford diapers, I decided to buy diapers when they are on sale and donate them to organizations that give them to women. But I also try to help by donating cloth diapers to friends in need and plan to donate at least part of my diaper stash when we finish diapering.

    Share the love means loviong your neighbor :) I just recently found out one of my friends from high school is considering cloth diapering for her expected baby. I am SO excited! I plan on sending her a big basket of goodies to encourage and support her and “share the love” of cloth diapering!

  • Tara said...
    November 7, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Sharing the love means giving to others. That doesn’t always equate to money. Even when you don’t have any you can still give time or donate things you aren’t using. I like that Cotton Babies is not just giving the gift of cloth to those in need, but also educating people. People still don’t realize how easy cloth can really be.

    Share the Love means a LOT to me! I was the program’s first recipient which was really the turning point in my life, I feel. The kindness of strangers helped me to get out of my “having 2 babies in 15 months and dealing with postpartum depression” slump. I made many positive changes in my life after the stress of having enough diapers for both my babies was relieved by this wonderful program. I went on to become Share the Love’s first Host Site! I know personally just how much having enough diapers for your little one can change how you view the world. It seems silly, but it’s true! It is my passion and mission now, to help as many moms as I possibly can to feel the way I did when I received my package of cloth diapers from Share the Love. I’m proof that the program works and it’s life changing. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? :)

  • Krissy Byerley said...

  • Julie Fickett said...
    November 7, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Being a Share the Love host means many things to me but mostly its about empowering other moms and working with them to find an affordable, sustainable solution to their cloth diapering needs so that they never have to choose between cloth diapering and another daily necessity. We all need a helping hand at some point in our lives and if something as simple as a few cloth diapers can make such a huge impact in day to day living…what’s not to love about that?

  • Jennifer said...
    November 7, 2013 at 9:59 am

    well not only sharing what you love with someone else but opening up a new opportunity that may be beneficial to them as well!

    “Share The Love” to me means giving someone a gift.

    In terms of cloth diapers, “Share The Love” means passing down a gift that can be used over an over again while freeing up financial burden.

  • Deidre Davis said...
    November 7, 2013 at 9:27 am

    To me, Share The Love means to share the love of cloth diapers with someone else-helping them financially in the process! Cloth diapers have helped us through some tight times.once I was to the point where I actually had more diapers than I NEEDED, I wanted to help others!

  • Katie S said...
    November 7, 2013 at 9:24 am

    I’ve been extremely fortunate to win some diapers along the way and I know that that is what actually made cloth diapers a possibility for me. My husband has been very reluctant about using cloth diapers, and at first did not want me to by any. Only after I won a few and he could see that they were not that hard to use and that I was committed to sticking to using them did he agree to let me start buying them for myself. Because of this, I can see how donations of cloth diapers may be the only way for some families to make cloth diapering a possibility. The blessings of being given something that you can’t afford to buy otherwise is huge. I love the idea of helping other families lighten their burden when they are struggling just to feed and shelter their kids. I have some diapers that don’t see much use that I would love to donate.

  • Deb G. said...
    November 7, 2013 at 9:13 am

    I have donated to our local Share the Love and feel very honored that I was able to. When a family has to choose between diapers and food it’s a shame.

  • Michelle said...
    November 7, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Share the love means when someone’s in need- and you have something to give you respond. The program makes me happy because after working and living in a low-income community, I’ve seen how poverty can be expensive. In cloth diapering, those who would benefit from the money savings of cloth can’t afford the start up costs of cloth diapers. I’m glad this program is in place!

  • Amber Hodge said...

    Share the Love means helping out a friend whenever they need help and even when they don’t know that they need help. 😉 Like when you visit for the weekend and end up helping out with yardwork, housework, or anything else that you can. Or donating at every chance you get. You never know how much even just a little bit can help someone else out.

    I think the perfect example of Sharing the Love is when you find something you really enjoy or love (cloth diapering for me!) you want to tell everyone about it and help them get started. Right now I’m participating in a cloth diapering Secret Santa and I can’t wait to get my person something I absolutely love for them to try out :)

  • Jenni L. said...

    It means teaching a family how to save money on diapers so they can afford other essential items. I donate my gently used diapers to our local diaper bank. I’m so thankful someone finally encouraged them to accept cloth!

  • Maggie W said...
    November 7, 2013 at 6:14 am

    Sharing the Love is wonderful. I’ve had new parent friends feel like they couldn’t cloth diaper because the initial cost is higher than buying a couple packs of diapers. Whenever I have a new mommy friend who shows interest in cloth diapering, I support her and purchase CDing supplies as her shower gift. It would be wonderful to pass even more CDs along!
