In the 18 months since Sling Dads UK was started over on Facebook, things have gone from strength to strength. What was initially a handful of guys chatting about parenting, wrestling and metal has grown beyond all recognition. In the last year alone we’ve raised almost £500 for MIND and Bliss with our calendar, brought a Dad’s eye view to the European Babywearing Conference in Bristol, and sought to promote Babywearing as a tool for the whole family, not just the mother.
This week we reached 500 members, which is more than we ever expected when the group was started! To celebrate we’re going to have a massive competition, with loads of prizes which have been generously provided by manufacturers, WAHM’s and members of the babywearing community. We’re looking to raise money for Men’s Health charities through Movember and to support own Mo Team. We’ve got some pretty cool prizes too, including:
- A Kokadi Mustache wrap (fitting, we know)
- A Rock Solid Slings Doll sling Pod
- A Custom Dye job by Dye Candy on a wrap you own
- A Connecta Baby Carrier, with size and straps to be specified by the winner
- A pair of Sookypad carrier protectors from Sookypads and Things
- A Geeky Sweetheart Firespiral Gossamer Keyfob
- And more still to be revealed!
And what do I have to do to get my hands on one of these amazing prizes I hear you ask? We’ve set up a page specifically for the competition here and all we’re asking is £2 a ticket. All the proceeds of the competition will then be donated through Mo Team to support charities working to improve Men’s mental health, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
The draw will take place on December 1st and prizes will be dispatched as soon after this date as possible. We’d be grateful for more prizes too, either comment on the blog here or on Facebook and we’ll come back to you asap on how you can support in that way too.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to the page to find out more and to bag your chance to win!
