Great Cloth Diaper Change - Phoenix - Midwives Rising!

 Thank you to Midwives Rising for use of their lovely and
super accessible location!
This morning at 9:30 am local time we helped (hopefully) break a world record. Our gathering gave us 30 adult/child pairs and raised money toward the Real Diaper Association and also awareness through the Great Cloth Diaper Change.

We met at Midwives Rising in central Phoenix and I swear it was before the sun rose, but I guess it wasn't - it just felt that way! Vendors appeared to be happy. To help ensure that their support was not left unnoticed, we encouraged participants to visit vendors and get signatures - five signatures gave participants an extra entry into the raffles.

In all we had 30 successful changers. We had more pre-registered, but life happens... we had enough to count as an official site. The news stopped by and if we get a spot tonight (or later), that means more people know that cloth diapers ARE still used and a great alternative to more trash!

Happy Earth Day!

Feel free to link your GCDC comments/pages and I"ll add them here!
