Here is how you can make a difference! Carry the Future is hosting a drive called Bundles of Joy for Jordan. From June 1 – June 30 2017, we are asking our wonderful volunteer network to create a small package for these precious families. Each “bundle” consists of 2 onesies, 1 footed sleeper, 1 infant hat, 1 small toy, 2 washcloths,1 baby care kit (nail clippers, nasal aspirator, comb, brush), 1 receiving blanket, and a personal note. We need gender neutral sets, boy sets, girl sets, winter sets, and summer sets all in size 0-3 months. This small bundle of joy will mean so much to families that are struggling.
“Carry the Future has been collaborating with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) on a number of important projects and initiatives in Jordan for refugees and their families. IRC currently runs a number of primary health clinics serving refugees in formal camps and communities across the country. Through this program, IRC have helped identify a need to provide new babies with “bundle of joy” packs full of essential supplies for mama and baby.” said Laura Dietz, Carry the Future Chief Response Officer.
Create a bundle filled with needed items and our volunteers and partners will hand-deliver them to refugee families. Visit our website and print out the checklist to include in your Bundle of Joy, purchase the items listed (New, unused items only, please) and once you’ve collected your items, pack them into a clear gallon bag with the checklist showing what you’ve included. To assist with customs, please remove all packaging and price tags. Then mail to the Carry the Future address below.
