Join the "I Support You" Movement
The best way to counteract hate is by drowning it in a sea of change. The tide is rising, and we can float above the negativity and fear; push down the us-versus-them bullshit and let it sink to the bottom, where it belongs; lure it to its death with a siren song of I support you, sung far and wide.
This year, we are taking the #ISupportYou message off the web and into the streets. It's easy to argue with strangers in a virtual setting, but what could happen if we took our frustrations, resentments, insecurities and competitions and channeled them into creating real, positive change?
Join our #ISupportYou Week of Support, from November 2-8, 2014. We will be posting ideas for how you can volunteer your time and energy in your local community and beyond, to help other mothers deal with the emotional, financial, and practical challenges of infant feeding. From helping moms in the NICU to leading breastfeeding support groups to organizing formula drives to bridge the gap felt by low-income families, we'll be asking you to show your support in tangible ways.
Check back here for details in the coming months, or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest.
