Another Carrier Connection Fundraising Success!
Another Lift Me Up Carrier Connection kid will soon be Babywearing to Thrive!
Giovanni is a happy 7 year old boy. He suffered an anoxic brain injury during birth (lack of oxygen). Because of this he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy that affects his whole body. He is not mobile and is wheelchair/stroller dependent. He has very low tone and no trunk control. Giovanni is unable to sit unassisted and has great difficulty holding up his head.
Even through all of these struggles, his mom says he is one of the happiest kids. She says Giovanni’s smile and laugh is infectious. He enjoys social interaction and he loves to be held.
As you might imagine, just going into the grocery store for a quick trip is challenging for Giovanni and his family. Fortunately- thanks to YOU- Giovanni and his family will soon be receiving a preschool Kinderpack carrier!! Many generous supporters have come together to raise $175 so Lift Me Up could purchase a carrier for Giovanni and his family. Being able to wear Giovanni will be extremely helpful to his family- even for simple things such as grocery shopping, walks in the park, or even just doing daily chores around the house.
We'd like to give a special thank you to our anonymous donors as well as the following generous contributors:
One of our donors, Tammy Fowler, posted this beautiful quote in her message:
Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love. ~Lao Tzu

Please check back very soon to learn about our next Carrier Connection family.
