Team 5MR is pretty darn excited to introduce not only our very first Natibaby exclusive, but one whose design has a very special story!
One of the VBEs from BWI of Kitsap Peninsula
contacted us about doing an exclusive wrap and ring sling in memory of her brother Donny who lost his fight with chronic active auto-immune disease at the age of 25. She has designed this awesome wrap in the hopes of wrapping his nieces (whom he never got to meet) in his memory. It takes inspiration from his love of 80s heavy metal music and tattoos.
Donny was diagnosed with an chronic active auto-immune disease at the age of 10 and received a liver transplant at the age of 14 at Seattle Childrens Hospital thanks to the support of DonateLife Northwest. While the amazing staff of doctors and nurses went above and beyond in his care in the many years he spent in the hospital, he lost his fight due to repeated in rejection.
This was a no brainer for the 5MR team and we're excited to be a part of this project. We are donating 100% of profits from this this design to the Make a Wish Foundation as a small thank you for the priceless gifts of a trip to Atlanta Braves Spring Training and Disney World they provided to Donny and his family.
This ring sling will be a 25% linen and 75% cotton blend. This ring sling will feel a tad rough when it arrives (due to the linen), and will need to be washed, steam ironed, and cuddled at least once to be smooshy soft!
