Sip and Chat Live- #MakeClothMainstreamChallenge and GCDC Edition! PRIZES and FUN!

Grand Finale prizes for MCMC

Join me and my cloth diaper friends this Saturday for a live chat to end our #makeclothmainstreamchallenge with a bang!  We will have a full chat that evening with representatives from our sponsoring brands and even a few of the headlining participants from the challenge.

The #makeclothmainstreamchallenge was a huge success!  Our headliners shared images and even videos of their babies wearing cloth diapers and exposed their large followings to how easy, cute, and awesome cloth diapering can be.  Their final day of the “challenge” will be April 18 though I am confident nearly all of them will keep using cloth diapers.  I know that some have gone full “cloth addict” since this event began 3 weeks ago.  We announced our headliners in our fast growing Facebook group and you can find their video introductions on the YouTube playlist.

Our live chat will be hosted on Google+ as a Hangout on Air so anyone and everyone can watch.  Joining me will be Jen from Spray Pal, Amanda from The Eco-Friendly Family and Green Child Magazine, Melissa from qdSpray, Andrea from Lassig USA, a friend from AppleCheeks, Laura from GroVia, Kelly from Lillebaby, and more!

To join you can do it two ways.  One is to RSVP on the event page and then hit play on the video in the page at 8 PM EST.  The other is to view the video through YouTube as it is live.  

We will be discussing the challenge and how it went for our participants along with the usual fun, off-topic banter that always seems to arise when we mix alcohol and live video streaming!  If you haven’t been to one of these chats yet then you don’t know what you’re missing!  It’s a fun way to spend an hour on your computer.

Grand Finale prizes for MCMC

Time to discuss the prizes.  I think you’ll be most excited about the chance to win these!

It’s time for the #makeclothmainstream Grand Finale GIVEAWAY!!

There are multiple ways to enter for multiple AMAZING prizes from all of our sponsoring brands.  We wanted a variety of entry methods because we realize not everyone uses Instagram or Twitter in addition to Facebook, so you get to choose where you share!  Here’s how to enter:

Each brand has a graphic in a Facebook album with their logo on it.  If you have a product by that brand in your home, snap a picture of it, share it on social media, and tag the brand!  Be sure to use the #makeclothmainstreamchallenge hashtag as well   Then COME BACK here and tell us where you shared it!  If you know how to grab the link to the post on facebook, twitter, or instagram, that’s great!  You can also pin it on pinterest and share that as well.  Anything goes!!

Now, what if you really want to enter to win something but you don’t already own a product from that particular brand?  Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!  You can just find one of their products online and take a screenshot of what you would LOVE to buy and share that!  Maybe your partner will see it and get some great hints for what to buy you for Mother’s Day coming up.   Just be sure to follow the same rules as above…share the picture on social media, tag the brand, use the #makeclothmainstreamchallenge hashtag and then come back here and share the link or tell us where you shared it under the brand’s graphic.

Make sense?  We know it may sound complicated at first since it’s a NEW way of doing things, but that’s why we started a day early. Once we all get the hang of it, it’s going to be super fun and easy!

We are here to help if you have questions, just make sure you ask in the group rather than on the graphics in this album so we can help you without the comments turning into a side conversation.  The comments on the graphics should be reserved for your giveaway entries only.  So one comment that has your screen name and where you shared it (or the link). 

For example, if I really wanted to win a prize from Spray Pal but I didn’t have a Spray Pal product at home, here’s what I would do:

I’d use my phone to go to the Spray Pal website.  I’d take a screenshot of the sprayer/spray pal bundle I’ve been eyeing.  I’d post it to instagram and make the comment something like: “I’d love to get this bundle from @spraypal for Mother’s Day!  It would make #clothdiapers so much easier! Maybe I’ll win one in the #makeclothmainstreamchallenge after the #GCDC15 tomorrow!!”

Then I would come back to this group, find the Spray Pal graphic in this album, and comment underneath it with: I shared this photo (screenshots of your share work great if your profile is private) on Instagram and my screen name is @blahbityblah

Super easy, right??  You can do that for each of the brands listed on the graphics and each brand will be giving away an amazing prize tomorrow after the Google + chat!  There’s also a grand prize which will drawn from entries on the rafflecopter form, so make sure you enter below in my blog post!  Let us know if you have any questions, we can’t wait to chat with you all tomorrow after the Great Cloth Diaper Change!
