All of us here at Bumbleride had a busy and beautiful summer. We hope your summer days were filled with memorable times with your children. We can’t believe Fall is sneaking up and kids are back in school.
Now we are packing up to attend this months Kind+Jugend trade show in Cologne, Germany followed by the ABC Kids Expo in Kentucky. It is always a great time to reconnect with retailers and friends and see all the exciting things happening in our industry.
Nearly 2 million sick and injured children have been treated at Rady Children’s Hospital since it opened on August 19, 1954. It is San Diego county’s only hospital dedicated solely to pediatrics and is the region’s designated pediatric trauma center.
“Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego, loves Bumbleride Strollers. Bumbleride cares about making life easier for parents and their children and that is exactly what they do for our tiniest patients and families at Rady. Bumbleride donates strollers to Rady on a continuous basis throughout the year impacting the quality of life of families with financial and medical needs. Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego thanks Bumbleride for their generosity” said Belinda Lanois, In-Kind Coordinator for Rady Children’s Hospital
Recently a stroller was given to the mother of Ruth Ruiz. Ruth is a 3 ½ month old baby who was born prematurely at 38 weeks gestation, has Down’s syndrome and a cardiac condition. She has been hospitalized in the NICU since birth due to various medical complications. Her parents lack resources and have not been able to buy a stroller for their daughter. Ruth’s mother was very appreciative for this donation!

Life here at Bumbleride has been a whirlwind of action. It began with a move to a new office, producing a video, a photo shoot for our new Natural Edition, designing our new website and launching some of our new products for 2011.
There has been so much activity and excitement that now we’re going to sit back and enjoy seeing your reaction to all the creative flow that we have been feeling.
We are looking forward to sharing the results of our hard work in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures of our new work space.
