Current and past milk donors and recipients – you are our biggest advocates! Whether you donated or received milk, or both, we hope that you will consider volunteering with us by sharing your story.
As you have probably experienced yourself, the most powerful way to support someone is by connecting over similar circumstances. Whether it’s navigating the NICU, exclusively pumping, donating after a tragic loss, receiving donor milk, or another kind of experience, our families and their babies have had many different encounters with challenges, hope, and healing.
Some of you have given your most precious resource to babies in need; others have witnessed the life-giving power of milk firsthand by receiving that “love in a bottle.” All of you are knowledgeable about our work and passionate about helping fragile babies live.
You are our best ambassadors for helping us get the milk we need in order to help fragile babies not simply survive, but thrive.
Please help us spread the word!
