raised of £1,500 target by 7 supporters

    Weʼve raised £69 to create an FREE emergency sling library for families in need in West Lothian. The slings are not loans - they are gifts to the families.

    Funded on Friday, 5th May 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We have kindly been donated several prizes for a raffle! Tickets are £2.15 each and all entrants MUST be contactable by email, (so tick the box allowing us to contact you please!). For example, a donation of £10.75 purchases 5 tickets.

    FIRST PRIZE: A babywearing photoshoot in Edinburgh with Tanya de Villiers Photography.
    This generous prize worth £75.00 includes approximately 7 high resolution babywearing and baby portrait photos and an online viewing gallery.*
    Tanya is fabulously talented and attended our Christmas Sling Meet. Her photography is very popular in Scottish babywearing circles for good reason!

    SECOND PRIZE: Chunkle Munkle Nepopuk Dress - age 6-12 months. Value - £35.00.

    THIRD PRIZE: Black and white bib, created by Caitlin's Keepsakes. Value - £6.00.

    FOURTH PRIZE: Large pair of Fidella Rose Sling Rings - Value £6.00.

    * The winning family must be comfortable with sharing their shoot online and on social media. 2nd - 4th prizes include UK postage - further at cost to winner.

    The draw will close on 30th April 2017 at 9pm. Any entries after this will be considered donations, tickets will not be provided and refunds unavailable. Tickets are unlimited so please gamble responsibly!

    Carried With Care is the social enterprise arm of Baby Bitz - providing free advice and sling hire to families in need in West Lothian, with the eventual aim to serve the whole of the Lothian & Borders. We have kindly been granted a gambling license by West Lothian Council to enable us to fundraise faster!

    At the moment we have 8 slings on loan to us from the Up Project. These make a fantastic difference to the families they help, however we eventually have to take them back to move onto new families. We want to make a free library for eligible families to have FREE slings that they can take home and keep. £1,500 would buy us approximately 30 slings to get us started, with a little spare to cover the transport costs of the first few consultations.
