Int. Babywearing Week - Auckland Sling Walk / Fundraiser

Post by Ethan's Mum » Fri Sep 18, 2009 1:05 am

Calling all babywearing fans!

It's International Babywearing Week September 21 - 28 2009. To celebrate I'm organising a sling walk to promote babywearing, and also to help raise funds for "Slingbabies for NICU" - raising money and awareness for the Kangaroo Care initiative. (click the following link to learn more about the exciting things that Slingbabies are doing to raise funds for this fabulous cause www.slingbabies.co.nz/Site/Babywearing_Week.ashx).

Tell me More!

Sunday 27th September - you are invited to gather in the foyer area of the movie theatre, level 3, St Lukes Mall at 10.45am for an 11am start. There are a couple of cafe's next to the theatre for walkers to nab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate before we set off ;0)

We will start the walk through the busy Mall, then walk down two busy streets and arrive at the Mt Albert War Memorial Hall on New North Road (ETA 11.40am). Outside the War Memorial Hall is a set of steps which will make a great set for a group photo - so if you bring your camera we can arrange for a group shot to be taken for you. Then to our final destination - Rocket Park which is right next to the Hall. Rocket Park is a great playground and there is also shaded seating. Bring a picnic lunch to have at the park if you like! There is also a cafe across the road which does lovely coffee and you could grab a bite to eat from there as well.


The Fundraising Part:

A friend has kindly agreed to donate his time to capture the walk on video! The footage will be transferred to DVD and copies will be available for purchase - with funds raised going to the "Slingbabies for NICU" cause. Copies may be ordered at the end of the walk - more info on how to do this will be provided on the day. Price to be confirmed.

I hope that many fellow babywearers will join me! Looking forward to seeing many different types of carriers/slings, a rainbow of colours and kids on fronts, hips and backs :0)

Please pass the word to your friends who may like to join us.

In case of wet weather, the walk will take place through the Mall only.

If you use Facebook pls rsvp to this event page and share with your friends and family 8-) www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/eve ... 011&ref=nf

Just edited my OP to include the date! lol Teach me for posting this so late at night.

We wish you could be there too Paula!

I've set up an event page at Facebook - if you're a member rsvp there if you like and share the event with your FB friends. www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/eve ... 011&ref=nf

I'll be setting up the event page to allow photos so that participants can post pix from the walk there for others to see after the event.

Looking forward to the walk & showing off our beautiful babies in their carriers - woohoo! :0)
