Welcome to the Great Cloth Diaper Change of Mid-Michigan site. Here you will find important information about the change event for 2016.
What is the Great Cloth Diaper Change all about?
The GCDC is an opportunity to spread awareness in communities across the world about how awesome cloth diapers are. Founded by the Real Diaper Association as their annual fundraiser event, the GCDC is a chance for like-minded people to get together and share their love for cloth. Can this year's change top last year's record of 7,441?
Donations to The Real Diaper Association through the GCDC Mid-Michigan event site are accepted via PayPal:
How does it work?
Each GCDC location provides an opportunity for the local community to gather together and advocate for cloth diapering at a grassroots level. There are many changes to the event this year. The diapers or training pants used in the change must be 100% reusable. This now includes homemade diapers, up-cycled diapers and cloth trainers. Parents and caregivers under the age of 18 will be allowed to participate. GCDC of Mid-Michigan volunteers will act as witnesses to photograph and verify participation totals.
Parents unfamiliar with cloth diapering are greatly encouraged to join us to learn more about how easy and economical it is! Loaner diapers are available for the event.
How do I participate?
This is a free event to attend, we just ask that you please fill out the pre-registration form so we can keep track of how many will join us. As an added incentive, the first 25 families to sign in at the event will receive a swagbag filled with goodies from both local and national companies. If you have multiple children, please have one adult per child being changed and an adult to watch any children not participating. Don't forget to bring a blanket to change your little one on! See the FAQ For Participants guide for more information.
Can I participate in the change and have a vendor table?
YES! You are more than welcome to have a vendor table in the expo and also take part in the change. Many of the vendors already lined up are also participating in the change.
