About

Changing Table Locator (CTL) is a grass-roots effort to get and share information about where changing tables are across the U.S. and Canada. We saw that there aren't enough changing tables and we want to help change that! Our goal is to get changing tables in as many public restrooms as possible. We are passionate about that so none of us are employees and all the work we do is in our own time. This is all volunteer work but we can't do it alone.

There is simply not enough information about where the changing tables are. We have contacted many large retail companies and restaurants already and they have helped us tremendously by giving us information about their locations that have changing tables. Some franchises are independently owned and operated so the corporate headquarters doesn't know which locations have changing tables. We need you to be our eyes on the ground to help us promote businesses that already have changing tables and encourage those that don't to have them installed.

You can help us a couple of different ways. When the Changing Table Locator app launches, as you visit different business, you can help us identify which ones have changing tables. You can also help by donating. Even working for a good cause costs money. We need servers for the website and data. We need to pay designers and developers. This isn't a business and we're not out to make a profit. We're out to make a difference and “Empower Parents With Knowledge.”

We are raising funds to help launch our iPhone app and our new website with a stretch goal to start work on the Android app. The CTL app will let you search for businesses and see if they have changing tables in their bathrooms. For example, you can use this app to help you decide where to go to dinner with your family. Or if there isn't any changing table information about the place you are, you can easily update the information and help other people using the app. Because the location information is provided by Yelp, the Changing Table Locator app will link back to Yelp so you can get even more information such as reviews, pictures, and lots of other useful content.

By contributing to our Kickstarter fundraiser, you'll get early access to the CTL iPhone app. You can help us by filling in the holes where we don't know who has changing tables. You can also help by telling us how to make the app better. If it isn't useful and easy to use, no one will use it so we want your feedback.

At ChangingTableLocator.com, you can also see info about changing tables. You can use it to plan your travel stops ahead of time and know what to expect for changing tables.

Risks and challenges

We have already started work on the iOS app and an improved version of the website which are in use right now by our company and developers. We are continually refining them and entering as many locations as we can. Not raising enough money would slow this project down until the funds are available to finish what we have spent so long working on. This app is 3 years in the making, and is one of a kind.

The app will be free to users and will use unobtrusive ads as a way to help cover our costs. You will be able to remove ads with a small in-app purchase. You are also always welcome to make a donation on the website or through the app. The continual support will allow us to make changes as needed maintain the highest functionality on all platforms.

There are millions of locations that need to be added, and with the help of our supporters, we can make sure people all over the country help us Empower Parents with Knowledge!
