OBG Gets Graceful!!

by Tami Grosset
Photographs by Sara McConnell

Last summer we ran one of our most successful fundraisers; Salsapalooza! Recently we ran another activity which has proven to be just as successful (success being the money raised and the joy experienced by all those taking part!); Babywearing Ballet!

Ester America, who ran the banbywearing salsa class for us, offered two ballet classes for free and she kindly arranged to use the Glebe Community Centre without charge.

Sara McConnell worked her photographic magic again and took these stunning pictures for members to purchase.

Dancers paid $10 for the 50 minute class and received one photograph as part of that cost.

Extra images were bought for $5 each.

The afternoon was full of smiles and laughter!

Very often as mothers of babies and toddlers we feel dowdy or clumsy or grotty.

As you can see, our babywearing ballerinas had an afternoon of beauty, grace and poise!

Thank you to all who took part, to Sara, Ester and the folk at the Glebe Community Centre.

The event raised approximately $600 to go towards the purchasing of carriers for the Babies of Peace Project, where we provide carriers to families going through difficult circumstances.

If you would like to nominate a family for a BoPP carrier please complete this form.

If you have a carrier you would like to donate to this project please complete this form and watch for our reply in your junk mail!
