Area Leaders Announcement

We have our Area Leaders!  In case you haven't heard, we are going to try something new with our meet-ups.  We are "splitting" up our meet-ups so that everyone has a better chance to attend.  We have found some wonderful mama's to help lead them, that can answer your cloth diaper questions!  They are all very excited to help you out!!  So, without further ado, here are the leaders:

LEWISVILLE/DENTON AREA - Keila B., Cindy T., and Kristen. M.

PLANO/FRISCO AREA - Amanda B., Kelly C., Katie J., and Angela J.


ARLINGTON/EULESS/E. FORT WORTH AREA - Sanddi L., Carla V., and Angela C.

N. FORT WORTH/SAGINAW/S. DECATUR - Brenda B., Jennifer H., Jayne T., and Jessica M.

CLEBURNE/S. FORT WORTH - Nicole S.  ***We still need 1-3 more people for this area, as we changed the areas from what we originally planned.  Please fill out the form HERE if you are in this area and interested in helping.  Thanks!

We are SO excited to get things going and hosting more localized meet-ups!!!  If your specific area is not listed, we apologize.  We based the areas on a number of factors (this map and meet-up attendance were the main factors).  If your area is not listed, you simply attend the ones nearest you!  Each area will set their location and time, as well as additional playdates if there is any interest.

While we will have meet-ups in various locations, we will continue to have a central online community!  We will also occasionally host centralized meet-ups so we can still see our friends in other areas.

We look forward to seeing you at a meet-up near you very soon!

2 Year Anniversary Giveaway Details

In August 2010, I started a little group to meet local mom's, and to help them with cloth diapers.  Little did I know that 2 years later we would grow to over 1,320 "likes" on our Facebook page, help countless parents get started with cloth diapers, promote our local cloth diaper shops, host monthly meet-ups in various locations, host the Great Cloth Diaper Change 2 years in a row, and start a local cloth diaper charity (the DFW Cloth Diaper Project). 

And yes, I have made many wonderful friends along the way!

Many times I have referred to this group as my third child.  It is my baby!  I am so proud of where this group has gone, and how much it has grown!  I also don't think of this as my group.  It is OUR group!  You help make it what it is.

In honor of our success, I would love to host a giveaway!!  If you are interested in sponsoring, please email dfwclothdiapergroup at hotmail dot com with the following information:

1. Your name and company name.
2. The item you wish to donate.
3. Your website and contact information.
4. Your Facebook and/or Twitter links.

We will hold the giveaway at the end of the month, on Friday, August 31, 2012.  If you wish to donate an item/service for the giveaway, please email me no later than Friday, August 17, 2012 so we have time to set up the giveaway.  Thank you so much for your support!!
