Leading Lady Donates $250,000 in Nursing Bras to Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week!

Beachwood, OH—August 1, 2016 – Loving Moments by Leading Lady will be donating over a quarter of a million dollars worth of breastfeeding essentials to local chapters of WIC (the USDA’s Women, Infant and Children program), La Leche League, ROSE (Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere), BMBFA (Black Mothers Breastfeeding Association) and other breastfeeding support organizations throughout the country to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, a global event that takes place during the first week of August.  With the support of breastfeeding advocacy partner The Best for Babes Foundation and breastfeeding and parenting website KellyMom.com, this donation of over 28,000 nursing bras and other breastfeeding essentials is to honor and provide the ultimate support to mothers who work hard every day to nourish their babies and contribute to a sustainable world.

“Our goal is to promote breastfeeding to all demographic groups, including new moms who are least likely to breastfeed,” said Mark Corrado, third generation owner of Leading Lady.  “By donating these nursing bras to WIC and other breastfeeding groups, we hope to have more moms nursing their newborns.”

World Breastfeeding Week is a week-long event that supports breastfeeding, mothers, babies and the worldwide community.  This year’s theme, Breastfeeding: a key to Sustainable Development, puts a global spotlight on the unwavering values Loving Moments promotes every day:  improving nutrition, health and wellness; educating about the benefits of breastfeeding; respecting the environment; empowering women; creating social change; and brightening the future for children.

Loving Moments strives to support every aspect of breastfeeding as the very best nutritional, ecological, natural and cost-effective choice for mothers and babies with lifelong health benefits for both.  Through supportive and affordable nursing products, breastfeeding education and advocacy, and reaching mothers at a grassroots level to encourage and applaud their breastfeeding journeys, Loving Moments fosters respect and caring within the breastfeeding community.

The donation of over 28,000 nursing bras and other essentials will be distributed to hundreds of community breastfeeding groups affiliated with WIC, La Leche League, ROSE, BMBFA, The Big Latch on and others with the help of The Best for Babes Foundation and KellyMom.com.  All of these breastfeeding advocacy groups were encouraged to submit breastfeeding success stories and photos that Loving Moments by Leading Lady will share on LovingMoments.com and through its social media channels.
