Support Breastfeeding Worldwide: Give to These Charities

Since some of you will be thinking about making some donations before the year's out, I thought I'd offer a few ideas for organizations which support breastfeeding, both here and abroad:

Mercy Corps's Breastfeeding Kit helps to promote and support breastfeeding in Jakarta, Indonesia.

UNICEF supports breastfeeding all over the world, with particular impact on breastfeeding promotion and support in developing countries.

Action Against Hunger has set up breastfeeding support tents in Haiti and protects breastfeeding while stabilizing malnourished babies in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Milk banks, which are independent non profits linked together by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America, need your support to continue to provide life saving donor milk to premature and sick infants.

La Leche League and Nursing Mothers Counsel provide vital mother-to-mother support for breastfeeding.

Best for Babes is giving breastfeeding a makeover and fighting to eliminate the 'Booby Traps' which undermine breastfeeding.

Finally, consider donating your used nursing clothes, bras, and other supplies to other moms, through WIC, your local church, or community organization

I know I've missed some!  Feel free to add more in the comments section.
