Cutest Keister Contest: Solving Diaper Need with Cloth Diapers
We are proud to announce the inaugural Jake’s Diapers Cutest Keister Contest, presented by Nicki’s Diapers. This is an online photo contest for the cutest cloth diaper picture, running during National Diaper Need Awareness Week, September 26 through October 2, 2016.
1 in 3 U.S. families struggle with diaper need, defined as the lack of an adequate supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry, and healthy. In developing countries, the struggle is much more dire, and caregivers find themselves having to choose between food and diapers.
The Cutest Keister Contest is a fun way to help solve diaper need locally and globally. Jake’s Diapers is keeping it simple with the basic rule of there must be a cloth diaper in the picture! All funds raised will support the life changing (and life saving) work of Jake’s Diapers Project Tiny Blue Diapers.
The Grand Prize is a $500 gift certificate to Nicki’s Diapers. 2nd Place wins a $250 gift certificate to The Little Bee Co., and 3rd,4th, and 5th place each win a $50 gift certificate to Lalabye Baby.
Entries may be submitted between 5 AM CST on Wednesday, September 21st and 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, September 25th via the Facebook Photo Contest App. A suggested donation of $10 is recommended per entry, and donations may be made here to support Project Tiny Blue Diapers, providing tiny blue cloth diapers to babies recovering from extreme malnutrition in Haiti. Donations made on Wednesday, September 21st will be matched by our fundraising partner, and there are bonus prizes available for most unique donors and total funds raised on September 21st!!! This means every donation, any size, can truly add up to big change! To fully fund Project Tiny Blue Diapers, we have set the bar high with a goal of $5,000! Nothing is impossible and we will CRUSH THIS GOAL! Once we fully fund Project Tiny Blue Diapers, we will start funding one of our newest diaper drops, working with previously abandoned, now rescued, special needs children who will be in cloth diapers for a long time.
This contest is in no way sponsored by, endorsed by, administered by or associated with, Facebook. For full contest rules, please visit our website.
Judging for the Cutest Keister Contest will run Monday, September 26th, starting at 6 am CST, and end at 9 pm CST Sunday, Oct 2nd. Winners will be determined by number of “likes” via the Facebook Photo Contest App.
