Portland mothers collect baby carriers for refugee parents

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some Portland mothers are taking big steps to help out refugee parents that are arriving in Greece.

Dozens of mothers are in Greece hand delivering and fitting baby carriers to parents.

The movement is called “Carry the Future.”

Portland mother Kellie Betcher started a carrier drive here in Portland.

Baby carriers are collected and driven relay-style from Portland to the organization’s headquarters in Glendale, California.

The carriers are then shipped over to Greece.

"...To be able to do one thing, even one baby carrier, changing one family's life, I think it was a really powerful message that I could do something," said Betcher.

The collection of carriers in Portland will last through December.
