Well, our biggest FUNdraiser of the year is happening in just a few days. There has been TONS of hard work done on this event and it promises to be the BEST yet! We welcome ALL babywearers to our bash, their families, friends, and babies. It promises to be a great time had by all. So, this week, I’ve gathered some #protips to help you make the best of our Birthday Bash and Community Expo!
Know the Deets.
The Birthday Bash and Community Expo is THIS SATURDAY. It starts at 10 am and goes to 1:00 pm. Here is the facebook event for more details.
The early toddler might get my scorn for humanity at 5:30 am, but the early babywearer gets… THE DOOR PRIZES!!!
A $10 Gift Card to Whole Earth Provisions,
A FREE PASS to the Just Between Friends Sale, and
A FREE sample from Earth Momma Angel Baby
You get an awesome swag bag, YOU get an awesome swag bag, Annnnnd you get an awesome swag bag!!
Come ready to meet awesome people.
We are super excited to offer access to some incredible community partners! From Mamametal artists and photographers, to baby acessory makers, lactation consultants, sling manufacturers, and MORE! Check out the official list here and definitely come ready to meet some awesome community partners.
Leave the selfie-stick at home.
Spoiled Rotten. It’s hard to find another way to describe the fact that we will have incredible professional photographers at our event to take your family’s pictures. One of my all time favorites was taken at this event… two years ago. Grab the attention of one of our photogs, you won’t regret it!
Bring the older kids
But note that your older child may think that ALL babywearing meetings are this fun and will be disappointed with regular meetings… but REALLY EXCITED for the “fun meeting!” Seriously, this is one of my six year-old’s favorite events of the year. Bring the big kids! Each of our community expo tables will have an event for them. They collect “stamps” and get a prize at the end! (Spoiler Alert) I know one of our community partners is having oragami at her table, my kiddo is super looking forward to that! So bring big kids, let them do the activities, buy raffle tickets, have some snacks, and win some prizes!
Speaking of Snacks… come hungry for snacks, but not starving for food!
We aren’t doing full on meals, but will have snacks available. Like all great birthday parties, there will definitely be CAKE!! My plan is to come early, grab a friend for lunch, then come back for the raffle.
Dive into our raffle!
Check out the prizes in person and buy some raffle tickets! We’ll be doing the drawing on Monday “live” in our discussion group. We have some tremendous prizes and you should buy some raffle tickets (support, yo). It’s our favorite FUNdraiser… and it’s lots of FUN! Want more info? We have that here.
Win All The Prizes
Ok, we can’t guarantee that you’ll win a prize, but what we can offer is a chance that you might through our raffle, a great gathering of community, some solid FUNdraising for the carriers and outreach you love, and an awesome Saturday.
Can’t wait to see everyone!
