We will have ten different winners that will walk away with a baby carrier: There is a Boba 3G, a Boba Air (donated by Diaper Lab) and a Boba Sleepywrap. (All of which we also have in our library, in case you don’t win one and want to check them out.)
There are also 2 Moby Wraps to win, a Maya Wrap Ring Sling, a Baby K’Tan, an Ergo Organic (with infant insert), a Chunei Carrier and GoZoZo Pouch (donated by Diaper Lab). (We recently added a Maya Wrap Ring Sling to our library and Hosa was kind enough to donate a Chunei Carrier for us to keep as well, so you can see those in our library, too!). Wrapsody donated a $25 gift certificate to put towards picking out your own carrier along with a baby beanie and matching hair scarf for Mama. Lastly we can’t forget Sleeping Baby Productions (who led a discussion for us last spring on DIY baby carriers) who donated a $75 gift certificate.
We also have a lot of wonderful donations of cloth diapers and diapering supplies. We know that not everyone who babywears also uses cloth diapers, but if you happen to win some give them a try and see how you like them, or pass them on to a friend! Once again, our sponsor Diaper Lab was extremely generous---cloth diapers are their specialty. They donated 3 Smart Bottom All In One diapers and hemp wipes along with 1 Baby Kicks basic pocket and 1 premium pocket with hemp wipes. There is a Thirsties Duo Set, a Bummis Beautiful Basics set, and three 4.0 BumGenius All In Ones. And if you are intrigued but a little scared of cloth diapers, then the gDiaper package can help you ease in! It includes two gPants and a package of biodegradable liners. Lastly, you will need to clean these diapers (or the ones you already have!) and you will be able to do that with Rockin’ Green and the detergent, shake it up pail freshener and melody room spray they donated!
We have other great prizes, too! Tiny Signs has sent a great prize package. Be sure to check out the Tiny Signs intro class we have planned for October 11th in Natick (registration required) They sent a $40 gift certificate for a Tiny Signs class or workshop, autographed Signing Time romper, Baby Signing Time Vol, 1 DVD and CD, Baby Signing Time Vol.1 board book, Baby Signing Time Vol. 1 flashcards and a Baby Signing Time Parent Guide!
Did you know some of leaders have their own businesses? Leader Beth has donated some items from her Etsy store Pink Pigeon Paper + Cloth, 2 wet bags, 8 small nylon snack backs and 8 large nylon snack bags! Leader Kat from Dark Matter Chocolate Laboratory has donated two three-bar gourmet chocolate samplers.
The next category is gift certificates! Want some great pictures? Portraits by Lisa gave us a $400 gift certificate, the most valuable prize in the raffle. Our sponsor Mama Ballroom has donated 4 one hour classes. We loved her demo class, a great way to dance while wearing your baby! Together in Motion in Arlington has donated a gift certificate for a Multi-Pass which is good for 14 visits!
Planning on coming to our Wednesday meeting and seeing Big Joe the Storyteller (who will be replacing our monthly discussion topic)? Not only is he donating his time, but he also donated a $200 gift certificate! We also have 1 month of open play at Cobblestones in Waltham, 1 week of classes at Stroller Strides in Cambridge and 3 Body by Fitness Classes.
Are you thinking, “Wow that is a lot of prizes!”? We aren’t done yet! Buy some raffle tickets for a chance to win a copy of “The Other Baby Book” by Megan McGrory Massaro, a 4 pack of tickets to the New England Aquarium or a super soft blanket from Me Two You. We also have a Wean Green set including a wean cubes pack, a wean bowls pack and a snack cubes pack in our raffle.
Want a neat way to bathe your baby? Blooming Bath donated a neat bath tub! ChewBeads donated a necklace and bracelet set that is safe for babies to chew on! Happy Family (who will also have a table at our party this weekend) donated a gift basket and Isis Parenting donated a bath gift basket. Wrapping up our raffle prizes is an infant car seat from Chicco.
One or more of these prizes can be yours, on Saturday October 13th! Get your tickets for your chance to win. (And, though we hope you can come to the party, you need not be present to win!)
We want to thank all the companies that donated to our raffle. We truly appreciate every single one!
