Some of you may have heard that La Leche League has been hurting for funding. They recently pulled Motherhood Maternity as a sponsor of World Breastfeeding week after they received email complaints, background is here http://mothering.com/discussions/sho....php?p=3270059

Anyway, they are looking for more sponsors. I know none of us could give away what a store that size could, but maybe we could all help out a little? here's the info if interested:

Based on new information, the World Breastfeeding Week Celebration Coordinating Team has declined the Diamond Sponsorship of Motherhood Maternity.

We would appreciate your help in securing appropriate WBWC sponsors. Please send us your suggestions, along with contact information to Linda Parry at [email protected]

Thank you to all who, through participating in the WBW Celebrations, are increasing breastfeeding awareness and raising funds for the mission of La Leche League. And thank you to all who took the time to share your feelings.

I would love to do this! It won't be much, but I just started a business, and I can at least give a little. Thanks for doing this- it is an awesome thing to do!

Here's the reply I got, it explains the levels & what you get in return at each level. I figure I could at least do the bronze, but might try the silver so I'll be listed on the website:

We are excited about the hundreds of Groups around the United States that
are fundraising to support not only their local LLL Groups, but all levels of La Leche League, so that we can continue to help mothers and babies know the
joys and benefits of breastfeeding. Thank you for considering sponsorship of
our 2005 campaign.
