REAL DIAPER ASSOCIATION NEWS: Volume 2,  18 AUG 2004

The Real Diaper Association has been open for a week and we are just beginning our cultural shift.  We have 26 members training to be Leaders, and we already have one approved Leader who will be creating her Real Diaper Circle soon.  If you are in Western Washington, keep your eyes peeled!

What are the organizers doing now?  We are working on the layout of our pamphlets, which will be available to download and print out, and will be available for purchase in larger quantities by Circles.  We are finishing a Handbook for Circle Leaders.  We are writing curriculum for basic diapering classes.

Cloth Diapers ARE Real Diapers - be a cloth diaper activist and JOIN RDA!

Thank you to our members for submitting photos.  See image submission guidelines here.

Each of us is also answering many emails that we receive daily.  Also, we never stop brainstorming new ways the Real Diaper Association can promote real diapers.
 
What are we doing with membership funds?  Right now we have used membership funds to purchase paper and ink for membership cards.  If you have joined, watch your mailbox; if you haven't, please join!  We are saving most of the money to pay a lawyer to assist us with incorporation and tax-exempt status, so that all future donations to the Real Diaper Association will be tax deductible.  Do you know a nonprofit lawyer that would like to help RDA?  Please let us know by contacting Rose at rose@realdiaperassociation.org.

RDA needs YOU, the activist.  Please use our text links and banners to aid RDA in getting noticed on the world wide web!

What are we adding online? 

We are building mini-websites for Real Diaper Circles that will be hosted by RDA.  These websites will provide information about each Circle -- when and where they meet, pictures of meetings, and descriptions of advocacy events.  We are also creating forums.  One is for businesses, one for Circle Leaders to share ideas, and one for members to find out if there are other members local to them.

DID YOU KNOW that one of our members was not allowed to enter a baby gym until her baby was put into a disposable diaper because of fear of disease?  The only way to stop misinformation like this is to educate people about real diapers.  We need to work together to make sure that this doesn't happen to anyone else!  What can you do to help?  JOIN!  If you have not joined the Real Diaper Association, please do so.  We cannot create a cultural shift towards real diapers without members.  Those of us volunteering to build RDA are just the organizers -- our members are the activists.  RDA provides the tools and support in order to help you make a change.  Join us, and together we can educate people about real diapers.

The Real Diaper Association is organized so that we can help our Circles and our members.  We are here for you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at info@realdiaperassociation.org.

Thank you for supporting the Real Diaper Association!


The Search Engine Crawl

As all website owners know ... search engine placement is a critical component of getting recognized on the world wide web.  No matter the importance of the message or website content, without Search Engine placement, the exposure is limited and the message is stifled.

The Real Diaper Association has been created for optimal search engine placement.  Even before we opened our doors, the Search Engines were looking for us through strategically placed links across the web.  Within 6 days RDA has been picked up by the major search engines, thanks to dynamic text linkage and faithful new members who are proudly displaying RDA banners and text links on their websites. 

Help us help you ... the more people we reach across the world wide web, the larger we can grow and the faster we can meet our objective - more babies in REAL DIAPERS.  Go here to choose a text link, banner -- or better yet, a text link AND banner -- to place at your site.
