Holding Hope: Preloved Baby Carrier Donation Point

Hey parents, now you can donate your preloved baby carriers to help keep vulnerable babies close and comfortable! Holding Hope is a community health initiative by the Australian Babywearing Association, and it's like a warm hug for those of us having a little trouble navigating the wild ride of parenthood.

Holding Hope - a community health initiative by Babywearing Australia

It's like passing on a little piece of your parenting wisdom, one baby carrier at a time. By donating those trusty carriers, you're not just decluttering your space; you're passing on the magic of closeness to another parent who might need it more than you could know. It's recycling with heart – a way to pay it forward in the parenting circle. Because who knows, your preloved carrier might just become the superhero cape for another parent in need.

Holding Hope isn't just about slinging a baby carrier; it's a support system that gets it. If you are an Australian family experiencing financial stress, domestic violence, crisis or other exceptional circumstances, Holding Hope is here to help you get access to a safe and comfortable baby carrier. 

Cloth and Carry is working with Holding Hope to help build babywearing bonds for families in need

Cloth and Carry is proud to serve as a donation point for the Holding Hope initiative. Now you can drop off your preloved baby carriers to keep another baby cuddled close. Yep, those carriers that have been there, done that, and are ready for a new adventure! You simply drop your unused baby carriers, in good to excellent used condition, at our Cloth and Carry home showroom and we will work with the Australian Babywearing Association to ensure that your donations can provide support to a family in need.

In a world that can feel a bit overwhelming and unsupported, Holding Hope is that comfy blanket you never knew you needed – wrapping parents and their babies in support and a whole lot of love. So, buckle up those carriers, folks, and join the baby carrier donation party! 🎉
