ABOUT BUNDLED BOTTOMS

Change starts with providing a new direction for a child and then staying the course over a long period of time. We have several programs focusing on education and child development, each working together to create a path leading to generational change for the children of Haiti.

With just a little planning and the help of the Bundled Bottoms Party Planner handout and downloadable kit, almost anyone, anywhere can help transform the lives of those living in poverty in Haiti. Bundled Bottoms helps MH4H carry out two missional areas of focus:

The Problem

When infants and their families have to resort to open defection, it opens entire communities to a vicious cycle. When open defecation occurs in a home with a dirt floor, which is common for many Haitians, it is easy for bacteria to survive and spread diseases. Diarrheal diseases, worm infestations and hepatitis are much more prevalent, and anyone living nearby is at risk.

Our Solution

If you’re like many of us, you already have what you need to become a Bundled Bottoms supporter hiding in the back of your closet or stuffed in your dresser drawers — T-shirts! We invite you to gather up these T-shirts, invite a group of volunteers and host a party with a purpose.

Host a Bundled Bottoms Party

Bundled Bottoms parties are great for baby showers, birthday parties, volunteer projects or youth nights. Any age or gender can enjoy a Bundled Bottoms gathering. At a party, you’ll use a template to cut diaper pieces from T-shirts and then package them up to be shipped to Haiti, where our seamstresses will sew them into cloth diapers.

With the help of Bundled Bottoms, Haitian women are earning a wage that allows them to buy sustaining food, and families can get out and about with their infants without fear of open defecation. After volunteering for Bundled Bottoms, you’ll look at your old T-shirts and see nothing but possibilities!

If you’re ready to start planning your Bundled Bottoms party, all you have to do is download our step-by-step Party Planner. This kit full of supporting printouts and promotional tools.
