Thanks for checking out our corner of the web! We are the family behind my lil sweet pea! We are super excited to be revealing to you our exclusive charity AppleCheeks diaper cover. This project began about a year ago when we released a very small batch of custom covers to benefit a small local autism charity. With the help of my dear friend and fellow AppleCheeks fan Shannon A., we produced just 20 covers for this fundraiser. The response from fans for our Hope cover was amazing and Shannon got to work making even more. In total, we were able to raise $900 for Unity For Autism. The AppleCheeks community truly blew me away with their support of this project!
It was difficult to keep up with the demand for our Hope covers and I started to think about how much more we could raise for charity if we were able to produce these diaper covers on a larger scale, so we asked Amy and Ilana at AppleCheeks if we could bring back an old favourite especially for this exclusive. We are so proud to finally be introducing to you.....BELIEVE!
A portion of the proceeds of every Believe cover will go to benefit Kerry's Place, a non-profit organization based in Southern Ontario. They are Canada's largest service provider for children, youth and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They are able to service approximately 8000 families each year and are committed to enhancing their quality of life. This cause is very close to family as our son was diagnosed with ASD just before his 4th birthday. In our area, the wait list for government assisted therapy is at least four years long. This is an incredibly long time for families to go without support. Autism now affects 1 in 68 children and studies have shown that children can make remarkable gains if they start in a therapy program before the age of 6; however, most children, like our son, aren't getting diagnosed until around age 3 or 4 so with a 4 year wait for services, they have already missed out on that prime window where the most gains can be made. We have been very blessed to be able to receive some financial support from our parents to help us cover part of the cost of private therapy for our son. He has made such strides in the last 2 years that I can't imagine where we'd be right now without it.
We chose to support Kerry's Place with this project as they are one of the main providers that offer support to families while they are on these long wait lists. We have personally experienced the kind of programming they offer and we are proud to support their initiatives.
Believe will be offered in all three diaper cover sizes AND storage sacs (mini, size 1 and size 2)! Your contribution will be directly helping families in our community and we are so thankful for each and every one of you. We know that together, we can make a difference.
