Great Cloth Diaper Change 2016!

Posted by Tracey Valade on Friday, January 22, 2016 Under: GCDC
Hello everyone!

As promised, here is an up to date blog post on this year's great cloth diaper change, Cornwall!

To stay up to date, ask questions and help spread the word, find us on Facebook events too!

We're holding the event at my children's school, Ecole Elemenaire Notre Dame, in the gym!
We're eliminating online registrations this year, all registrations will be done on paper! The form is available for you to print in advance, just send me a message and I can send it your way so you can fill out before you come, or we will have blank copies available for those who do not have them.

We're changing things a little from last year. A few vendors, snacks and drinks, and a coloring table. We will still have draws, similar in style to our last event, where you purchase tickets and put them in the bowl for the item of your choosing. And as always this is a non profit event, all proceeds going to the Real Diaper Association.

We will have two local non-profits sitting in as well, the local chapter of Le Leche League and some of my fellow car seat technicians will be sitting in with Cornwall Car Seats, a branch of SEATS for Kids.
We also will have some local vendors sitting in, some old favorites returning. Lil Tree Creations, Butt-Ons Cloth Diapers, Love Bug Creations, and Miss D's Artsy Accessories!

Sun Kiss photography is returning this year again as our official photographer, with her adorable photo booth! She'll be doing that plus she will be setting up a table with her home decor. Also, Amanda Louise of Shifting Creations will be doing a short babywearing dance class demo at 10:15am, be sure to be there and registered beforehand to take part. Mavis Roy will be donating a big cake, so we'll have some yummy treats too! Our star witness and location host, Mme Bridgette will be selling popcorn for $1 to help raise money for the school's new play structure too, so bring change for that as well as our raffles.

There are changes to the regulations too, there is no longer an age limit to the caregiver changing, so guess what young ladies and gents, you can participate under 18 now! And, for those with multiple children who need a hand changing, you can use an older sibling to change a younger sibling! We also no longer have a height limit of 39 inches, so any sized tot who is in cloth diapers OR disposable diapers at the time of the event, OR trainers, is eligible! That's right, for the first time ever we're allowing trainers. Let me know if you need something prior to the event so we can have it for you at the registration table!

We've got one volunteer right now for the registration table, and would love a couple more people to help out. All you need to do is collect the registration papers once people are done. We also might need a hand selling out raffle tickets so let me know if you're interested in that as well. Either of these jobs is before the main event so you can do both participation and volunteering. And as always we would love more donations for our swag or raffle prizes!

And speaking of swag, we're doing that a little differently too. After the event there will be table with the swag items, for you to choose what items you might want, from info trifolds, business cards, free items and more.

We've already booked our returning balloon artist and we're working on getting a face painter too!
