Chloe Chrysanthus, an IBC doula and car seat specialist, volunteered her time to check and properly install infant and toddler car seats for free. Since 8 out of 10 car seats are installed improperly, this was a great service to all the moms who came out.
In addition to the car seat check and installation, IBC also asked for donations for the Fistula Foundation, an organization which performs surgeries to correct obstetric fistulas for women in developing nations. People graciously donated baked goods and handmade crafts to sell to raise money.
Danielle Koontz, the director of IBC, was hoping to raise around $50 and to her great surprise the money collected totaled $250! That amount is over half the cost of a fistula repair. The IBC car seat check and Fistula Foundation event was a true success and showed that women all over the world can change each others' lives for the better. Truly this event was a win-win for everyone involved! A BIG thank you to everyone involved!
