A message from Milkface Nursingwear

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Yaktivism

We [at Milkface!] have too much stock. After an incredible Boxing Week Sale we continue to have a number of items that we just don’t have the space to display to try to sell. It is time to give it away.

We are looking for organizations or groups that would benefit from the receipt of brand new, first quality nursing fashions and an assortment of nursing bras.

The recipient organization(s) should be involved in the promotion of breastfeeding, have a financial need for the items, and be able to disseminate the donated goods to those in need at no charge to the recipient mothers.

We have about 75 articles in various sizes (but mostly larges and smalls) and would like to send it out to no more than 3 groups/organizations. These items have a retail value of over $6000.

If you represent or know of such an organization, please let us know how they would benefit from this donation. We will select recipients on January 16, 2009 and hope to get the items out right away.

How can we help you help others?

If you have any ideas, please contact Britt at Milkface.

Oh Andrea, I’m so glad for your blog and the way local organizations can get their messages out. I just called St Mary’s Home (http://www.stmaryshome.com/site/stmaryshome/Home_p1186.html) to let them know about this. Teen mothers are less likely to breastfeed, maybe some who try it will have some clothes they feel comfortable in, thanks to you and Milkface.
