As part of Babywearing International, our group offers yearly membership options. The membership donations go to support us on both local and national levels. $10 goes to our national organization to offer national-level chapter support in the form of marketing packets, website, software, babywearing advocacy and insurance. The other $20 stays with us and goes almost entirely towards funding exciting new carriers for our lending library. We’re always on the hunt for deals, so we’re usually able to add a new carrier for every 4-6 new or renewed memberships.
BWI members rent from our huge lending library for free! Non-members pay a $10 rental fee, so annual memberships are a great deal for you and a wonderful way to support our chapter’s efforts in the community. Many members find that they save a lot of money by trying carriers for a months at a time before they buy, so they’re sure they’re making the best possible purchase.
Joining is a fast, two-step process. First, click on the “Donate” button to send us your $30 or $45 membership donation. You don’t need to have a PayPal account, the button will also allow you to pay via credit card.
Next, submit this quick membership form for our records. Then you’re done.
Thank you so much for supporting BWI of Greater Austin!
