Sure, Pm me. There is a host board for asking lots of Q but I don't mind getting together or emailing if you need to brainstorm. At this point they haven't decided whether they will run one next year. They are going to send out a survey to all the hosts for feedback once the dust settles. There is talk of running in alternate years or having an event without Guinness involved. If they did it without Guinness we could have everyone hold it on the same day but at a convenient time in their time zone. The problem with running it Simultaneously is that Malaysia's event was 12:30am, Australia's was at 2:30 am and Hawaii's was at 6 am. Which makes it difficult to make the 25 minimum participants that Guinness requires for your site to count towards the record.

Re: Great Cloth Diaper Change - Guelph

Drum roll, please!

The results are in.....

The official count is 8,251, that is 3,225 more than last year!

Fun Facts for GCDC 2012
189 sites qualified
9 sites had 100+ attendees (only 2 last year), all in the US, with one state (Oklahoma) represented TWICE in Oklahoma City and Tulsa: CO, OK, MI, IL, FL, OK, UT, SC, TN
3 cities were in the top 10 both years: Denver, Oklahoma City, and Charleston.
21 sites JUST made the Guinness count with 25 attendees each.
67 cities hosted events that didn't qualify for the Guinness World Record BUT DID ACCOMPLISH our goal of increasing awareness about reusable cloth diapers.
When you Google “Great Cloth Diaper Change” and 2012 – you get 557,000 results. I guess we DID raise awareness!!!
We had 17 countries register. 11 held events that qualify for the record: Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland, Malaysia, Netherlands, US
Another 4 countries held nonqualifying (but cloth-diaper-awareness-increasing!) events: Brazil, Chile, Estonia, Japan
