A letter from our founder, Tereson Dupuy, about why she is so passionate about Autism Speaks:
Dear FuzziBunz® Friends:
Many of you know me as the Mother of the Modern Cloth
Diaper. I invented FuzziBunz® in 1999 after my son, Eden, was born with
Fast forward seven years. Eden is a thriving young boy
with no skin issues; however, over the years I had noticed that Eden
displayed some behavioral concerns and learned that he found
socializing with others hard to do. Eye contact was difficult and
speech issues were a constant struggle, something I thought he would
My concerns mounted and so I took Eden to the doctor.
That's when I got the numbing news: Eden was diagnosed with Asperger
Syndrome, a form of autism. At first my heart sank. Autism was the only
word I heard. My Eden was one in 110 children who would have to cope
with autism for the rest of his life. I was devastated.
My devastation quickly turned to optimism. With the
support of organizations like Autism Speaks—and my family and
community—I learned that there were many techniques and treatments to
help Eden cope and thrive. It has been some journey—that's for sure—but
one I wouldn't trade for the world!
I recognize that I am fortunate that FuzziBunz® has
afforded me the opportunities to treat and help Eden, but I know not
all families are in this position. That's why, in Eden's honor,
FuzziBunz® will donate $1 to for every "Light It Up Blue" diaper we sell
to Autism Speaks, a national advocacy organization dedicated to funding
autism-related research and helping families impacted by autism. (Note
Light It Up Blue was once known as Blue Sky). The diapers are the same
price as the all the other FuzziBunz® cloth diapers—so I hope you'll
simply add the Light It Up Blue diaper to your stash and know that, by
doing so, you're helping families like mine cope with autism and that
you're contributing to our nation's plight to find a cure.
Many of you already know that I founded FuzziBunz® because
of Eden. His constant diaper rash wouldn't go away and his doctor told
me I had to use cloth diapers only—no more chemical-ridden
disposables. At the time there weren't any modern cloth diapering
options, so I had to invent one. I credit my special little boy, Eden,
with the invention of FuzziBunz®, and now as the inspiration of
FuzziBunz's® public support for autism-related organizations. Thank you
to Eden and to my entire support system, which includes family,
friends, advocacy organizations and now you, our loyal FuzziBunz® fans!
