Carry the Future Provides Hope & Help

By November 24, 2015PTR's Time to Share

Have you ever seen something on the news and thought “How terrible, I wish I could do something to help?” That is exactly what happened to Californian mom, Cristal Logothetis, who saw the tragic image on the news of the young Syrian boy who drowned before his family could reach safety in Greece. Cristal was Crisis Signcompelled to act and decided that she could do something to help refugee families with babies and young children.

Cristal began collecting baby carriers, starting an organization called “Carry the Future.” Once they had collected over 2,000 carriers, Cristal and nine other women travelled to Greece to gift them to Syrian and other middle-eastern refugee families as they arrived in Greece.

It was such a successful trip that they have recently sent a Phase 2 team back to Greece with over 2,500 carriers. On each trip, the volunteers fit the carrier to the adult and show them how to use it, often accomplishing that in two minutes or less so that they can move on to help another family. Carry the Future volunteers speak about the relief and hope they bring instantly to these families through the simple gift of a baby carrier.

Premier Timeshare Resale’s owner, Kelly Marshall who is also mom to a 16-month-old, learned about Carry the Future and knew she wanted to help. Kelly is currently collecting baby carriers locally in Park City and the surrounding area to ship to Carry the Future.
