Thank YOU for Making World Breastfeeding Week 2017 a Success!

 

We received such a thoughtful outpouring of gratitude from our breastfeeding support organization partners during our World Breastfeeding Week 2017 event. We just HAD to share the impact that breastfeeding support – from kind and knowledgeable lactation consultants, warm and friendly fellow breastfeeding moms, or a comfortable and easy-to-use nursing bra – can have on new moms. Thank YOU to everyone who participated in our program. We salute each of your for the support and dedication you have for breastfeeding!

 

Hello,

World Breastfeeding Week 2017: KANA WIC in Kodiak, AKOn behalf of the KANA WIC Program in Kodiak, Alaska, I would like to thank you for your generous donation.  It brought tears to my eyes to see the number of nursing bras and covers were sent to our WIC agency for our pregnant and breastfeeding WIC mothers. Your donations help make our World Breastfeeding Week Party a huge success.  The KANA WIC Program serves families in need both in the town of Kodiak and the 6 villages on the island of Kodiak.  Because of your donation, every pregnant and breastfeeding WIC mother on Kodiak Island is able to have a new nursing bra. Thanks again.

Stephanie Jenkins, MS, RD, IBCLC

WIC Coordinator, KANA WIC in Kodiak, AK

Dear Leading Lady:

I wanted to write and say thank you to your company for providing these bras for our mothers. They have made our World Breastfeeding Week/Month even sweeter. In the 18 years I have worked with Aurora WIC as a Breastfeeding Coordinator I have seen many needs for bra’s and wished we could have helped in some way but did not have the budget to do so. What a joy for me and staff to be able to offer these to moms. What makes it even more special is that I will be leaving my position here just this week to work in another hospital continuing to help mom’s breastfeed and it was a wonderful thing to be able have these for moms in my last days here. So thank you!
