Thanks to Benz of N@W, we were able to secure a wonderful venue - Blue Leaf's Jade Pavilion! Incidentally, this Sunday, the Blue Leaf will be hosting "The Big Banquet" - a food-tasting event by the top caterers of Metro Manila. Click here for tickets.

Erik certainly fit the height requirement. However, he was already potty trained and refuses to wear diapers. He even doesn't wear thick training pants anymore and only wants his "briefs." I'm saving his potty-training story for another post! But both N and E were cloth diapered so they still got into the action. Both kids were up early and helped us prepare the collaterals like the box for the cloth diaper donations and stickers for the loot bags.
Of course, what would the event be without the participants. For this, we have MCNP to thank for. If there is anything you want to learn about cloth diapers, you have join MCNP or Modern Cloth Diapering Pinays. Most of our participants are members of this group and because of these cloth diaper enthusiasts, we successfully qualified for the Guinness World Book of Records attempt with 88 participants! We have already submitted our evidence which have been verified so we are now just waiting for the other locations to send in their numbers and evidence. The Philippines has done its part!

What did we hope to accomplish with this event? Cloth diaper companies have little or even no advertising/marketing budget compared to the disposable giants. With this activity, we hope that we have put the thought of using cloth diapers in a Filipino family's consciousness. Every disposable diaper that remains unused and not thrown in the landfill is a step closer to a 100% cloth diapering Philippines. Watch out for next year's Great Cloth Diaper Change Philippines.
