FuzziBunz® Cloth Diapers Raises $13,000 for Autism Speaks™
LAFAYETTE, La., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As a mother of a child impacted by autism, FuzziBunz's CEO, Tereson Dupuy, committed herself to helping others impacted by autism too. Today Dupuy is proud to announce that her modern cloth diapering company has raised more than $13,000 for Autism Speaks™.
Through the "Light It Up Blue" cloth diaper campaign, which launched in June 2011, Dupuy pledged to donate $1 to Autism Speaks™ for every "Light It Up Blue" FuzziBunz cloth diaper sold. Since making that pledge, she says her fans have "showed up" to support the cause.
Autism is a very personal cause to Dupuy, as her son, Eden, was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder, in 2006 when he was just 8 years old. With the help of the medical community and support from friends and family, Dupuy says she believes her son has been able to overcome many obstacles along the way.
"Eden is doing great and I have a lot of people to thank for that. I want to make sure all families touched by autism have the opportunities to get the services and support they need like I did," says Dupuy, who is also known as the Mother of the Modern Cloth Diaper. "I will continue to donate $1 to Autism Speaks™ for every Light It Up Blue FuzziBunz cloth diaper sold through December 31, 2012."
The FuzziBunz® "Light It Up Blue" cloth diaper comes in both the one-size "Elite" cloth diaper, which adjusts to fit babies from 7-30+ pounds, and the "Perfect-Size" cloth diaper, which comes in sizes x-small through x-large. Light It Up Blue FuzziBunz are available for $13.95-$18.95 (Perfect Size) and $19.95 (Elite One-Size) at a variety stores on- and off-line worldwide.
"As always, I hope our efforts will help change the lives of families touched by autism. We are so grateful that the cloth diapering community came out so strong to support this cause and we hope they continue to rally around the autism community," adds Dupuy.

The patented FuzziBunz® cloth diapers are a modern, convenient and sustainable diapering solution for today's busy parents. The reusable pocket cloth diapers ensure no leaks, no rash and no waste. FuzziBunz® diapers include three layers: 1) a waterproof outer barrier to keep wetness contained, 2) a soft microfleece inner layer that touches a baby's skin and pulls away moisture, and 3) a unique, pocket-style opening that enables a parent to customize the absorbency using super absorbent micro-terrycloth pads. Stay-at-home-mom, Tereson Dupuy, invented FuzziBunz® in January 1999 in response to her infant son's chronic diaper rash and her overall dissatisfaction with all available diapers. Tereson stitched the first FuzziBunz® in her home and a short time later, the modern cloth diapering movement was born. Today, FuzziBunz comes in a Perfect Size diaper as well as in the Elite One-Size cloth diaper option.
