I've been getting formula samples, formula coupons, and formula checks in the mail for the past several months. Since I'm EBFing I won't use any of it, but I hate to see it all go to waste. I have somewhere between $40 and $50 in coupons and checks that would just be thrown out.

 

I found a solution! MamaBaby Haiti is an organization that provides prenatal care, labor and birth assistance, postpartum care, and well-child care to mamas and babies in Haiti. They are also an approved site for midwives doing the NARM PEP program to get clinical hours. They are always in need of supplies for their babies, including formula. They encourage breastfeeding whenever possible, but in many cases the mamas are too malnourished themselves to breastfeed, or they have died and the babies don't have a mother any longer.

 

You can send your formula samples and cans (non-expired), coupons, and formula checks to:

MamaBaby Haiti

PO Box 657

Newberg, OR  97132

I love this, thank you!  I keep getting sample cans from Enfamil, this is a much better option than just tossing them.
