Last year Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin raised nearly $25,000 during the inaugural 24-hour Amplify Austin citywide fundraising campaign. This year’s Amplify Austin begins Thursday, March 20, at 6 p.m., and the Milk Bank joins over 400 area non-profit organizations in requesting tax-deductible contributions. By 6 p.m. Friday, we aim to raise $50,000 – all earmarked for our Charitable Care Program. Can we do it? Yes!!! But we need your help.
Here’s how you can help us:
Email all your family and friends. Tell them what the Milk Bank means to you, and what our Charitable Care Program means to families with infants who have a medical need for donor human milk. This is the program that ensures infants in need receive donor human milk regardless of family insurance coverage or financial resources – $50,000 provides more than 11,000 ounces of lifesaving milk.
Contact all of your breastfeeding friends and family members and let them know about our “Night Owl Nursing Challenge.” We have great prizes every hour from midnight to 5 a.m. Nursing moms (and other “night owls”) will want to be in the drawing for each hour’s prize, so have your phone and credit card handy when you wake up to feed your little ones. Check out some of our prizes:
Who couldn’t use some darling things for the little one?!
How about a night out?
Or a trip with the kids to the Thinkery and Amy’s Ice Cream. They’re both Austin favorites, and they love supporting the Milk Bank’s work.
Spa services, anyone?
We’re grateful to these sponsors, and we’ll be grateful for your support of the Milk Bank’s Charitable Care Program. Let us know when you are up by posting on our Facebook. We’ll be watching, listening, and chatting.
We need you in order to help more babies. Please join us through your donation.
