Why do you think you would benefit from a baby carrier?
Or why do you think they would benefit from a baby carrier? Please also use this space to tell us about any special circumstances (injuries, twins, medical conditions, etc.) that might affect your family or any carrier preferences you may have. Please note that requests for specific brands will likely not be honored, especially for brands such as Tula, Kinderpack, or Lenny Lamb, and styles such as Wrap Conversions or Half Buckles.
Where did you hear about us?
I understand that The Carrying On Project only provides carriers to families that DO NOT currently have one and CAN NOT afford one. I understand that I only qualify for this program if I do not already have a carrier or am willing to donate the carrier I currently have, before I receive my new one, if it meets TCOP Standards.
I currently DO NOT have a carrier of any type or style and CAN NOT afford one.
I have a carrier that does not work for me and would like to donate it.
I understand that The Carrying On Project is for United States Military Families ONLY. Please explain your affiliation below.
This does not include grown dependents, non-immediate family of the service member, non-DEERS eligible significant others, daycare providers, or foreign services. This DOES include Veterans, Active Duty, Reservists, medically retired individuals, and Wounded Warriors for the use of carrying their children. You may be asked to provide proof of service or affiliation.
Please note- as of JULY 2018, our estimated processing time is 6-12 weeks from when you are notified of your acceptance. Priority is given foremost to families of currently deployed e1-e4s and families with special circumstances (injuries, twins, medical conditions, etc.) If you are currently pregnant, you will be wait listed until closer to your due date.
I have read and agree to this.
If you intentionally nominate yourself twice we will use the date of the SECOND nomination for purposes of processing. A third, intentional, nomination may be grounds for disqualification. If we discover that you have falsified the information on this form you will be disqualified.
I understand these terms.
I understand that if I have falsified information about my qualification status (Such as lying about owning a carrier either during the application or upon acceptance) and TCOP finds out after I have received my carrier, I will be billed for the full retail cost of the carrier I have received and will be responsible for paying it in full or returning the carrier in the condition I received it, and if I do not comply as agreed per condition of application I understand that I may suffer legal ramifications.
I understand and agree to pay the invoice in full or return the carrier in the condition it was issued to me.
Would you like to Donate?
We don't require a donation, but shipping is expensive! If you can spare $7 it will cover the cost of shipping your carrier to you, $14 will cover your carrier and another family's as well! Every little bit helps!
Please visit our donation page if you're able to help.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
