As you know, Babywearing International, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The only way we grow as a chapter is to reach out into our communities and share the babywearing love and education that we are dedicated to providing. Having our chapter doing fundraisers helps us to do this and your membership allows us to do exciting things like purchase new carriers for the lending library. Our growth over the past year has already helped us to become one of the large chapters in BWI and therefore, qualify for extra goodies for our chapter and to support our outreach. We appreciate your support through membership and also from participating in our fundraisers, like our recent restaurant night and our upcoming raffles. We are looking forward to see all of you at our International Babywearing Week events!
