At Cloth for a Cause, we’re all looking forward to some good times with the upcoming Great Cloth Diaper Change!
What’s the Great Cloth Diaper Change?
The Great Cloth Diaper Change is a Guiness Book of World Records attempt to have the most babies changed into cloth diapers. In the years past, it’s been done simultaneously, which had some places (like Malaysia) changing diapers at 2 am! This year, it’s going to be a bit different: it’s going to be a rolling event, so it’ll happen at 11 am local time wherever you are. Just be sure to show up at 10 am.
There are tons of places participating, and Cloth for a Cause will be participating at our local events! Some places will be free entry, some will require registration. Some will have goodie bags. One thing that I’m sure of: they’ll ALL be fun!
Prince George, BC
The Prince George Great Cloth Diaper Change is sponsored by Cozy Bums, the Prince George chapter’s single largest benefactor. It’ll be held at the Family Resource Center.
Address: 1200 La Salle Avenue (The old Fort George Elementary school.)
What’s happening? Suzi, Megan, and Pearl will be there collecting donations and spreading the word about Cloth for a Cause. Suzi is also a little competitive: The Fraser Valley chapter received 59 pounds of donations, and she’s positive that the Prince George community can do better than that. She’ll be there with the collected donations and a scale, and hoping to generate 60 pounds worth of donations. Cash donations are, of course, always welcome. Suzi has promised to do some sort of public humiliation if we meet goal. Possibly singing I’m a Little Tea Pot?
We’re thrilled to announce that our newest chapter, located in Kamloops, BC, will be participating in their local Great Cloth Diaper Change event! Snug Glee Bumz will be hosting at the Southwest Community Church
