Woven Wraps & a Little Charity

Raffle Winner Chooses Luxury Wrap

The week before Christmas I opened up a raffle to raise money for the Metropolitan Ministries which feeds, houses, and assists individuals and families in my community to find viable work and become independent.   I really like everything that I hear about this organization, and I found myself wanting to give more than I had in my pocket.

Thus, the raffle.  And it was so rewarding to offer this opportunity for giving to my babywearing community.  Hundreds of mamas and papas jumped at the chance, despite the fact that Christmas is a tight time for many of us.  We took the wider view that any family with a turkey and a Christmas Tree is a rich family, and we found some money to donate to buy turkeys and presents for those who hadn’t any.

We raised $800 in those few days.  And I was especially thrilled when Metropolitan Ministries announced that  all donations on New Years Eve would be doubled by a special grant.  I quickly sent the donation, and as as result, Metropolitan Ministries received $1600!

The raffle winner chose a linen Zara Tri-Blue wrap from Ellevill which she is eagerly awaiting now!

Thank you so much to all of you on the Wrap Your Baby Facebook page who donated!

    If I do win this raffle, I’ll be giving the wrap to a friend who just had a baby. She desperately needs a wrap. And nothing would make me happier to gift her one 🙂

    Kind regards

      I’m afraid this is an old blog post, Janine, and the contest is closed. Congratulations to your friend and I hope she can get a wrap anyway as they are such a boon to a new mom! Note that I have layaway and gift certs available on wrapyourbaby.com You’re a good friend!
