I was thinking as I ran today and I came up with an idea that I thought might be cool for us. Maybe we could have a "lactivism challenge" thread and the challenge could change monthly or weeky or whatever. The challenges could be things like:<br><br>
"Write a letter in support of NIP laws to your reps" and give the necessary links to contact info.<br><br>
or "leave an LLL flyer (or some other informational piece) at a local moms gathering place"<br><br><br>
I dunno, its kinda a skeletal idea at the moment but I thought it might be cool.

Hpmh, you just offended me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I think it's a great idea though.

Great idea!<br><br>
Sometimes I find that if I don't have a 'direction' for action its hard to have enough energy left to do something after getting all worked up about something.... which leaves me drained in the long term.<br><br>
I'm also HORRIBLE at writing letters, takes me forever, so sometimes when people get inspired and share what they are working on, it really helps me.<br><br>
(And I'd go for something monthly or perhaps every 2 or 3 weeks, just because anything more might sometimes feel overwhelming, but that's just me).<br><br>

We could include a form letter or letter writing ideas in any lactivist challenge involving a letter. That way if someone didn't want to write their own, they could use the form one.<br><br>
Other challenges might be "talk to one family member about the benefits of breastfeeding" "talk/write to one local or national business about putting the breastfeeding welcome here symbol in their window" stuff like that.<br><br>
Then we could report our progress in the thread and tell our stories about how it went.
