LLLC Appeal - help support breastfeeding
Support breastfeeding families. Contribute today to provide Support in 2017!
It is that time of year again, a time for thinking of others in the spirit of sharing and love. Each year LLLC's Fall Appeal provides critical support that allows our work helping breastfeeding families to continue. As always you can make a donation TODAY by clicking on our Donate tab. Every contribution is important to us! LLLC does not receive regular government or corporate funding, we rely primarily on donations from supporters like you.
Sixty years ago, seven mothers in Illinois came together and formed La Leche League at a time when breastfeeding was no longer the norm in North America. They believed that experienced breastfeeding mothers could provide the kind of help that women needed to establish a good breastfeeding relationship with their babies. Thanks to their vision and the dedicated effort of our volunteer Leaders, countless babies and their families have benefited from the expertise and support of La Leche League. Today we serve Canadian families from coast to coast to coast.
Your support matters! Here is what we hear from mothers and families:
"La Leche League is an excellent resource for breastfeeding mothers everywhere. I refer friends and acquaintances to them often. I am on baby #3 and happily breastfeeding her like the other two. I used La Leche League with my first and second and I’m happy to know that if I need any support, I know who to call!" Paulette
"Keep up the great work. We have 3 daughters who all breastfed. Our first daughter was helped by a League member as she struggled to breastfeed at first. We are eternally grateful to our friend as we believe it helped make a smart kid. She is now in Grade 12 and her high school mark is 98.5%." Suzanne & Chris
