Now go ahead and scoop up some awesome carriers while helping further our mission at the same time![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" type="full_width" icon_pack="font_awesome" content_menu_fe_icon="arrow_back" text_align="left" padding_bottom="40"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Also, don't miss this amazing special running through the month of October! Now is a great time to buy a ring sling from Myheartcreative. Why, you ask? Not only are their ring slings gorgeous, but for each ring sling purchased on their website this month, they will donate a Myheartcreative ring sling to Lift Me Up to be given to one of our families who has a child with special needs. Thank you for your generosity, Myheartcreative. Now let's get shopping![
Speaking of exciting things happening, did you hear..??? Lift Me Up won the Award for Best Babywearing Outreach!! We are so passionate about helping families who have children with special needs, and we're honored to be recognized for what we do. But here's the cool thing- we could never do this without YOU. It's because of your support that families are able to #babyweartothrive. Every time you share our Facebook page, re-post us on Instagram, Re-Tweet us, or participate in any of our social media events- you are helping spread awareness for our organization. For every $10 you donate, you are shipping a carrier to a family who has a child with special needs. For every item you purchase in our store, you are helping get even more carriers into the hands of these deserving families! There are so many ways you can support our mission.
We are so grateful to all of you who are not only following our journey, but are joining in with us as we spread the gift of babywearing to families who have children with special needs.
Thank you for being part of the #babyweartothrive movement.
