Reusable Nappy Week is coming – Volunteers wanted

There are busy busy times ahead in the coming months for the ANN and we need all hands on deck!

REUSABLE NAPPY WEEK – October 13th – 19th, 2008

It seems like AGES away, but these things creep up on us and bite us on the bum (excuse the pun) before we know it!!! If we want certain events, certain venues, certain activities, certain dates, we need to lock them in, Eddie. 

The theme this year will be focussing on fashion in cloth nappies be it tie-dyed squares or the funkiest fitted or cuttest woolies.

The week will be essentially run by the ANN (Australian Nappy Network), and costs covered for ANN approved RNW activities. Those representing the ANN or running an event need to be a member of the ANN but non ANN volunteers can be involved as well.

Some ideas for the types of things that can be done are below, if you think that you can help organise any of these in your state, have some other event ideas or can you help in any way please volunteer.

HOW CAN YOU VOLUNTEER?

1. Contacting your state co-ordinator at modernclothnappies.org, or

2. Joining us on the Australian Nappy Network forum.

LIBRARIES

Anyone willing to contact their local library about display space, and if they are willing to lend a nappy (or few) to the cause for a week, we can provide posters and flyers.

LOCAL COUNCILS

If you have a contact at your local council or would like to seek their support could be useful.

FEATURE EVENT

Perhaps a fashion show with some of the tots showing off some fancy funky naps… where? When? Who? How? 

MEDIA

There will be a national approach regarding the media. Any tips/offers of help welcome.

SEWING WORKSHOPS

We have previously organised some great workshops and would love the hear from anyone keen to share their nappy sewing knowledge and perhaps make snap presses available.

WOOL DYING/KNITTING WORKSHOP

As said many times, you don’t need to commit to doing a stint on TV or a talk to 100 parents, a simple coffee catch up at a chid friendy cafe, or better still, a park, goes down really well and is fun for all. A display at a library is fantastic exposure and low maintenance. 
We have PLI for any events that require it. 

NORTHERN TERRITORY CO-ORDINATOR  – We also require a co-ordinator for the Norther Territory

GREAT DOWN UNDER NAPPY HUNT – We will be needing some helpers to assist with Hunt organisation as well.

So come along and volunteer at www.modernclothnappies.org.

How does the GDUNH work? It’s simple! You register at Diaper Decisions between now and March 1st.Then, when the hunt starts on March 1st, you have one month to visit all the participating sponsor sites and hunt for the Diaper Decisions™ nappy icon. Find enough nappy icons, and you will earn entries to the 47 random prize drawings, including Three Grand Prizes! Prizes are worth in excess of $4000.

The Great Cloth Nappy Hunt – Sponsor Signup time!

Ozclothnappies is proud to once again be participating in the Great Cloth Nappy Hunt. This is the hamper we’re donating – what do you think?

The Great Down Under Cloth Nappy Hunt is jointly run by the Australian Nappy Network and Diaper Decisions. The Down Under arm is co-ordinated by the lovely volunteers Lesley and Shane of Cherub’s Kiss.

What is the Hunt? It’s a website treasure hunt. Sponsors “hide” the nappy icon somewhere on their website, and Hunters spend a month searching the sites for the hidden icons. There are several prize pools, with eligibility depending on how many icons a Hunter finds in the set month (there are no prizes for first-past-the-post). Discounts and special offers run throughout the Hunt month.

If you’d like to become a sponsor, follow THIS LINK to download the rules and the Application form,
and send the finished Application form to downunderhunt@diaperdecisions.com. You don’t have to be a nappy WAHM (Work-At-Home-Mum/Man) business to join in! Past participants have included businesses making toys, educational materials, body products, and more – anything of interest to young families.

If you’d like to join in the Hunt as a Hunter, bide your time and watch this space. Registrations aren’t quite open yet.
