Please help us in supporting Carry the Future, a group of dedicated mommas that provide baby carriers to Syrian refugee families with babies and toddlers during their long walk/journey to asylum. Donations of gently used soft, structured baby carriers such as Bjorns, Ergos and Mei Teis are needed. Wraps, ring slings or pouches will not be accepted due to the circumstances of needing to fit parents in less than 3 minutes with little to no spoken word. Old carriers, worn carriers, faded carriers are perfectly acceptable, but please no broken or recalled ones.
If you like, pin a written note to the refugee who will be receiving your carrier by using a paper clip! If your carrier has a pocket, you can also stuff it with items such as: plush toy, baby/toddler socks/hat/mittens, high protein snacks and/or electrolyte or vitamin packets.
Laura O’Neill has graciously offered to collect carriers and ship them for those who would like to donate. Carriers can be dropped off at the January social. Additional drop off times may be arranged by emailing Laura at email@example.com.
Please read about the need.
