International Babywearing Week is an annual outreach event sponsored by Babywearing International. It is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing. Locally, we celebrate International Babywearing Week through a series of events throughout the Greater Burlington area. Click here for a full list of events.
2017 International Babywearing Week Raffle
This year, we will be having an amazing raffle. Proceeds will provide our organization with the resources to better support the chapter and meet the needs of the babywearing community. Our goal is to raise enough funds to add more items to our lending library, prepare for a potential second monthly meeting option, and start an outreach project to provide carriers for low income families.
Our generous 2017 sponsors have donated over $3,000 worth of great prizes, and we will be previewing them in the weeks to come. The raffle will be held on Saturday, October 7th at our main event. Raffle tickets will be $1 each, or may be purchased in sets: $5 for 6, $10 for 12, $20 for 25, $50 for 65, $75 for 100, $100 for 140. You do not need to present to win prizes. To learn more about how to purchase tickets, click here.
