Double stroller for expecting mother
Back in the day, strollers were simple items used to transport babies from point A-B; Now, strollers are like souped-up SUVs. Expecting parents need to do significant research on the ‘right fit’ for their little ones, on top of dishing out a lot of dough. Some strollers even boast having a cup holder, bug shield (fyi bugs splatter at speeds of 35mph or greater) and solar-powered lights!
For one expecting mother with a two-year-old, she’s not looking for any of the bells and whistles. She wants a reliable double stroller to help get both of her kids around. She also needs a toddler car seat to take her son to hospital visits with her. As newcomers to Canada, with no income and minimal support, she has issues with access to food and housing. She’s due to give birth in the next few days, and time is running out. (Update: mom had the baby on Sept 10th, it’s a boy!).
How you can help
You can donate your gently used and clean double stroller (we’ll arrange pick-up and drop off). Because used doubler strollers are so hard to come by, we’re also pooling funds to buy a new one for her along with the car seat. If we get the used stroller, any extra funds will cover diapers and baby items. Let’s help relieve some of the stress that comes along with a new baby and help this family enjoy getting places together.
