Leading Lady Champions Breastfeeding Moms & Babies Across the Country with a $350,000 Nursing Bra Donation during World Breastfeeding Week
It’s World Breastfeeding Week and once again we’re having an epic event! Leading Lady is supporting moms and babies during this global celebration with our remarkable annual nursing bra donation. This year we’re donating $350,000 in breastfeeding essentials through partnerships with over 350 breastfeeding support organizations nationwide.
Our mission is to champion moms in making the healthiest nutritional choice for their babies. Regardless of income, all moms deserve the opportunity and resources to nourish and nurture their babies through breastfeeding. Leading Lady aims to make breastfeeding a little easier and a lot more comfortable and stylish through our annual donation program that reaches thousands of new moms every year.
We’re passionate about breastfeeding and raising awareness for this vital public health cause. The theme of World Breastfeeding Week this year is “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together.” We hope you will join us to celebrate, advocate, encourage and support breastfeeding. Together we can all make a difference!
Our nursing bra donations will be distributed to breastfeeding support organizations nationwide including WIC (the USDA’s Women, Infant and Children program), La Leche League, ROSE (Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere), BMBFA (Black Mothers Breastfeeding Association), Best for Babes, hospitals and community groups.
