The Dirties on Diapering - Round 2

I just wanted to take a minute to share a really cool idea from Jamie Wilkinson.

I want to use photography to create a visual hard-cover coffee-table style book, which will let people know about cloth diapering vs. disposable diapers. I want to show, using pictures, both the health risks and environmental risks moms take by choosing disposables. I want to make the recent information about disposable diapers a more vivid picture in people's minds. I also want to show a bit on the modernization/history of the cloth diaper through photography. If funded, the book will be sold on both and and will be available for stores from the publisher.

Kickstarter is a wonderful webpage which funds artistic & creative projects through pledges using Unfortunately they do not yet use PayPal because only Amazon has the option of not charging people unless the project is fully funded. It would be difficult to complete the project and give out backer rewards without proper funding. This is all or nothing! Nobody is charged until pledges reach the funding needs. So help me spread the word so we can make this happen! Thank you everyone for your support!

Also, I know sometimes it is difficult for people to make a pledge. Although amounts as small as $1 are accepted, it's definitely a time when budgets are tight! So if you are excited about this project but can't pledge, it would be a huge help to simply spread the word! Facebook, tweet, or blog about it! All bloggers who blog about it before the end of funding will receive two books to give away for their blog! Just post a link to your blog under the "comments" of this webpage.

GIVEAWAYS! I will also be doing giveaways throughout the pledging process to random backers. The sooner you get your pledge in, the more giveaways you will qualify for! Every backer, no matter how big or small, will get 1 entry in each giveaway drawing.
If you are a green company interested in giving away a product to both promote your company and this project, please email me (Jamie) at Thank you!!!

If "The Dirties on Diapering, Round 2" funding is a success, I will personal buy a dozen cloth diapers for one random backer, any brand & any type. Each backer, no matter what size pledge will have one entry.

IF this project is a success, BumEssentials has generously offered to give away three A-Z Kits (a $47.99 value) to 3 random backers! Wow! A-Z kits include 2 Bumbino Diaper Shells, 2 "Terry Towel" Bum Pad Combos (inclusive with diaper shells), 1 "Classic" Bum Pad combo, and 1 Travel Bum Bag. This is the perfect starter kit. It covers everything whether you are at home or on the go. Check it out at

Nifty Nappy is excited to promote this project by giving every $50 pledge a Snappy SwimzEaze Swim Diaper!! That's in addition to your backer rewards!!! Check out their swim diaper and more of their great products at!

Please note: I do not intend to use this project to speak poorly upon any companies. I just want to educate parents on their choices.

Also, if you pledged the first time, you will need to re-pledge during round 2. Nobody was charged during the first launch, and all pledges were void. Thank you for your continued support!

You can also find "The Dirties on Diapering" on Facebook & "Sugar Snap Photography" on Facebook & Twitter.

Please help if you can. Only 5 more days left for Jamie to reach her goal! Click here to visit The Dirties on Diapering Kickstarter page.
