Can You Help La Leche League Group in NY?

I recently was contacted by a La Leche League  leader, Whitney, in New York, who told me La Leche League of New York West is planning an area conference (for October 5-7 in Grand Island, New York). 

They are holding a silent auction fundraiser at this conference and they need silent auction items.  They will be acknowledging all auction donors in their conference booklet. They will also display company-marketing materials next to any donations they receive for the auction. Whitney said they are expecting between 100-200 women plus their partners and children to participate. 

I absolutely adore the LLL-I have found so many helpful articles on their website when I have had breastfeeding, issues, problems, or questions.  Furthermore, their book, “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding,”  is just a wonderful resource for anyone who has questions about nursing, or who is planning to nurse, and just needs to know where to begin.  It also has great troubleshooting solutions in it, and I think of this book as my “bible” for nursing. 

So, I was very happy to donate a breastfeeding shirt, and bumper sticker from my on-line shop, Little Pumpkin Sweet Pea Designs for their auction. 

If you can donate any items to this group, I know they would appreciate it.  You can contact the La Leche League leader, Whitney, by e-mail.  She can give you all the details.  But please hurry, because Whitney needs to receive all donations in the next couple of weeks, if you want to be recognized in the conference booklet. 

If you think you can help, that is great, and I know they thank you in advance.  It is for a wonderful cause.  Every nursing mother (or mother-to-be thinking about nursing), needs support, and the LLL is always there.  Now there is a simple way to give back to a local chapter of this wonderful organization!  🙂
