For those of you who need a little backstory to catch up, The Great Cloth Diaper Change was started last year, when a group got together to try to set a world record for most reusable diapers changed at the same time around the world. The idea was to have a family-friendly event to help celebrate Earth Day. Judy Aagard of Tiny Tots is credited with the inspiring first notions of this event, last year. From the official Great Cloth Diaper Change website, here are the stats from last year:
"A Guinness World Record was set for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously with 5,026 participants at 127 locations in 5 countries. The total number of participating hosts (not all qualified for the GWR) reporting were 203 with 6,363 participants from 10 countries!"Wow! This year we, collectively speaking, are working together (ie- businesses like All Things Diapers, mamas, bloggers, media, etc.) to break that record, on April 21st, 2012. To find a location near you, click here. There are 305 official registered host sites this year--is one near YOU? If there is not a location near you then you can check back here, at Adventures of Mommyhood, and you will be able to virtually experience the GCDC 2012, as I follow businesses through the planning stages, have fun reviews and giveaways during "Real Diaper Week" (the week leading up to the 'change') and by following along with my in the Great Cloth Diaper Change Blog hop. Each day during "Real Diaper Week" I will bring to you a new topic about cloth diapers, and a linky to be able to read many other bloggers 'take' on the topic too!
Alright, now you are up to speed on just what this event is and why it's so amazing! So, lets get back to our focus on one really fun and exciting place where you can participate in The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2012--at All Things Diapers!
There will be a lot of exciting fun to be had from All Things Diapers on April 21st! Please note: due to space for the event, it will be held at the Davinci Academy School, not the store itself. The sign-up page on the All Things Diapers website has the address of the event venue. The site is very near the store location, for your convenience. Looks like it's going to be a great turn-out and a perfect opportunity to see in-person some of the awesome products you've been wondering about! The Baby Expo is from 9am-11am, so make sure to plan to be there early! There are activities for the little ones too, including a playground area, yoga, and music stations!
