Carriers in this library would be readily available for purchase for $75 or less. Another library will be available to families staying at The Ronald McDonald House while their child is receiving treatment at one of our local hospitals.

We host several family-friendly fundraising events each quarter. These are not exclusively for babywearers! Invite your friends to join in the fun and help support your local BWI chapter.
