A photo-journalism style coffee table book showing the risks parents take when choosing between cloth and disposable diapers.
I want to use photography to create a visual hard-cover coffee-table style book, which will let people know about cloth diapering vs. disposable diapers. I want to show, using pictures, both the health risks and environmental risks moms take by choosing disposables. I want to make the recent information about disposable diapers a more vivid picture in people's minds. I also want to show a bit on the modernization/history of the cloth diaper through photography. If funded, the book will be sold on both Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com and will be available for stores from the publisher.
Kickstarter is a wonderful webpage which funds artistic & creative projects through pledges using Amazon.com. Unfortunately they do not yet use PayPal because only Amazon has the option of not charging people unless the project is fully funded. It would be difficult to complete the project and give out backer rewards without proper funding. This is all or nothing! Nobody is charged until pledges reach the funding needs. So help me spread the word so we can make this happen! Thank you everyone for your support!
Also, I know sometimes it is difficult for people to make a pledge. Although amounts as small as $1 are accepted, it's definitely a time when budgets are tight! So if you are excited about this project but can't pledge, it would be a huge help to simply spread the word! Facebook, tweet, or blog about it! All bloggers who blog about it before the end of funding will receive two books to give away for their blog! Just post a link to your blog under the "comments" of this webpage.
GIVEAWAYS! I will also be doing giveaways throughout the pledging process to random backers. The sooner you get your pledge in, the more giveaways you will qualify for! Every backer, no matter how big or small, will get 1 entry in each giveaway drawing.
If you are a green company interested in giving away a product to both promote your company and this project, please email me (Jamie) at SugarSnapPhoto@gmail.com Thank you!!!

Nifty Nappy is excited to promote this project by giving every $50 pledge a Snappy SwimzEaze Swim Diaper!! That's in addition to your backer rewards!!! Check out their swim diaper and more of their great products at NiftyNappy.com!
Please note: I do not intend to use this project to speak poorly upon any companies. I just want to educate parents on their choices.
Also, if you pledged the first time, you will need to re-pledge during round 2. Nobody was charged during the first launch, and all pledges were void. Thank you for your continued support!
