As the calendar year draws to a close, and we celebrate holidays with friends and family, I've found myself more and more motivated to write a blogpost about giving thanks. A lot has happened since we became BWI of Atlanta last October, and much of it could not have happened without the support of the babywearing community, friends, and family.
First and foremost I'd like to thank all the people who keep Babywearing International of Atlanta funded - the members. Without our members we can't have a lending library. That is the biggest draw for anyone joining this organization. Our lending library has mushroomed and it's all because of people joining and paying dues. All of the educators at BWI of Atlanta are volunteers, which means that 100% of the chapter's share of dues go straight towards the lending library or advertising.
Of course, we can't have a lending library without the vendors and manufacturers that donate carriers to us or sell us carriers at a discount. If you've been a longtime reader of this blog you will not be surprised to hear that Jennifer Harris of Marsupial Mamas has been instrumental in helping us build our lending library. The vast majority of our wraps have come from Marsupial Mamas and I could not ask for a more wonderful, generous person with whom to do business. When we are in need, I turn to Jen first. She comes through every time.
