Yesterday, we (the RDA) received notification that we weren't invited to submit a full grant proposal for a grant for which we had submitted a letter of inquiry. I spent a few hours sobbing over tea and some overly sweet cookies. Okay, I didn't do that, but I was pretty bummed - I had thought we were a perfect fit for this grant! When I told a friend, she reminded me that we had a GREAT letter written on behalf of a really worthwhile cause and organization. And she's right. We're not giving up. Finding and applying for grants isn't easy and it takes time (which is in high demand). But we have no doubt that there are donors out there who want to support an organization working to reduce waste by promoting healthy, economical reusable cloth diapers. Now it's just a matter of connecting with them...
