Following up on all the buzz from last month, we now have a more updated list of participants from the Great Cloth Diaper Change that happened on April 23rd this year. This event brought a great deal of media attention and raised much-needed fund for the Real Diaper Association the 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping families find and use reusable cloth diapers. Many of our Everything Birth representatives hosted or co-hosted their own local diaper change parties.
We want to thank everyone who participated in The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2011. We met some great ladies and some adorable babies. New friendships were made. Networking ties were created that will bring even further unity and strength to the cloth diapering community. It was a huge success.
We are very proud of all of our reps, they put a lot of work into this event and it paid off. I wanted to add some extra praise to Katherine Loichinger of Lowcountry Diaper Parties because she made it on the news as an Everything Birth representative. Congratulations to Kristen Eggers, Kristine M Fountaine and Brandalyn Byler for getting cloth diapering some great local press. Even the owner of Everything Birth took to her community to participate in The Great Cloth Diaper Change and got some good press for cloth diapering in doing so.
The Great Cloth Diaper Change website announced that 221 hosts reporting 6363 participants so far. These are just unofficial results. When you’re talking about going down in the record books, there’s all sorts of paperwork that has to be finalized. As the weeks go by, you can find all current numbers on the Great Cloth Diaper Change website. In the meantime, here are the rough numbers so far:
Australia – 3
Brazil – 43
Costa Rica – 5
Dominican Republic – 5
Germany – 26
Malaysia – 64
Spain – 17
Switzerland – 13
Canada – 912
United Kingdom – 25
United States – 5546
Plus 116 participants from home via the twitter chat!
Never knew that Malaysia would straight up own Germany, Australia, Brazil, THE UK. THE UK for crying out loud. What happened there? Thats my two cents. Excellent effort by all those 5546 participants for making the GCDC a reality!!
