FB Manduca HighFive ROAK

Thank you to everyone who nominated deserving Mums in the Manduca RAOK giveaway for Mother’s Day.  I loved reading through all the entries and wish I could give a Manduca to all the nominees.  To the nominees, what wonderfully thoughtful friends and family you have. So much love was shared on our Facebook page!!  Thanks to random.org a winner has been selected from all those nominated and the name that was drawn is Cathy White!  Congratulations Cathy.

Cathy received many nominations and the nomination that was drawn was from Cathy’s friend Tracie Frandi who wrote:

“I would like to nominate the lovely Cathy White too – She is one of the most amazing and caring mummas I know, with such a huge heart. Totally deserving of such an awesome prize. I know her lil diamond would love to be snuggled in such an awesome carrier.”

Cathy please send a message through the My Natural Baby Facebook page and let me know which colour HighFive manduca you’d like – grey, royal or lime.

But wait! There’s more! There will be more giveaway news announced here on the blog tomorrow night in support of two families who are living with the extreme challenge and responsibility of life with children who have life-threatening diseases right now. Being a Mum of such a child myself, my heart goes out to them. Our family have been blessed so much by the kindness of others since my 6yo son’s leukaemia diagnosis at the end of January this year, so this is part of the ‘paying it forward’ process in my book! More news on this tomorrow xx

Manduca baby and kid carriers and accessories are available in New Zealand from My Natural Baby and selected stockists nationwide.
