Tula Contest Winner
Congratulations to the Tula Baby Carrier contest winner, Laura Tomkins, who woke up this morning to a big surprise. I am so happy for Laura – she couldn’t be more deserving of this prize. Her son Connor was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the beginning of 2014. Laura has been in and out of the hospital with Connor and her older son, Jackson, who was injured this past year and required surgery. Needless to say, 2014 was a rough year for this family.
I feel an extra special connection to Laura because of the serious health issues her children have experienced (and it doesn’t hurt that Connor is wearing a hat with bicycles on it). Laura is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since there is very little funding for CF research. Here is a link to her fundraising page in case you’d like to give a little something in the New Year – another great cause.
Also, I promised to announce the total amount of money raised by Ula and her awesome group of loving, thoughtful and dedicated baby wearing parents. Are you ready?? $12,600.
It’s an amazing and humbling way to bring in the New Year. Thanks so much to all who donated.
