Head on over to The Sakura Bloom Styleathon now you are just in time to enter the Round 1 giveaway!
We are all heartbroken, watching the horrifying events that are unfolding in Japan. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless in the face of such massive suffering, and yet it is of paramount importance that we gather our resources and reach out to the victims in every way possible to help them survive and rebuild. It is in this spirit of hope and love that Sakura Bloom has decided to spearhead a three-day (March 15-17) fundraiser to benefit the Japan relief efforts.
Tickets are available for purchase by clicking here. The more you give, the more chances there are to win: $10 will get you one ticket, $25 will get you three tickets, and $50 will get you ten tickets.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the American Red Cross.
Thank you for your generosity.
If you use a baby sling to help you parent, the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA) needs your help. Much of the baby sling industry currently exists in a precarious regulatory limbo, which means that your favorite sling manufactures may soon go out of business. Please join the BCIA now to help ensure that babies and parents continue to reap the benefits of babywearing.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has gone on record warning parents about the use of slings, which has damaged the industry’s reputation and market share.* Although the BCIA believes the statement was issued with the best of intentions, the statement is mistaken and seems to be based on the dangerous duffle bag-style carrier that is structurally dissimilar to a standard baby sling. Without a strong and united voice, the industry will continue to deteriorate and could conceivably be regulated out of existence. In the wake of the March 2010 warning, at least two major US manufacturers have ceased operations, and many more will be affected in the US and globally if we do not act.
The BCIA is working with industry experts and legal advisors in forming a Position Paper (also called a White Paper) clarifying the essential nature and indisputable public health benefits of baby carriers.
Additionally, the BCIA is working closely with government, manufacturers, and consumer groups through ASTM International in order to finalize, as soon as possible, a standard that is achievable to both small and large manufacturers.
If you have a stake in the baby carrier industry, whether as a manufacturer, retailer, educator, consumer, or a citizen interested in the well-being of infants and families, please support the BCIA both by joining as a friend or business member and also by spreading the word about our organization and the good work we are doing.
Sakura Bloom is a proud member of the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance.
As is that weren’t cool enough, my sister Carole is quoted in the babywearing article. She is interviewed not as part of Sakura Bloom but as her alter ego, professor of anthropology at the University of Colorado.
This issue will be a great resource for new parents and we’re thrilled to be a part of it!
