The theme for International Babywearing Week this year is Share the Adventure. Babywearing International of Fayetteville has planned many fun adventures to participate in throughout the week. All of our events will also be posted on our Facebook page and are family friendly.
We will be having a drawing at our final event of the week, the potluck on Saturday. For each event that you attend during the week, you will receive one ticket to be entered into the drawing. You may also earn extra tickets for the drawing by brining nonperishable food items to the events that will be donated by our chapter to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
You do not have to be a member of BWI Fayetteville to attend events, everyone is welcome to attend any of the events. If you are interested in membership, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to one of our educators at any of our events.
