Help Me Help Haiti

Hey guys - a bit of an informal post here, but I could REALLY use some help!!

So, we all know what's going on in Haiti right now and that they could really use our help. It's being suggested that we donate monetarily instead of sending food, etc. Well, I don't know about you, but I am BROKE. But I still want to help. Tomorrow I am calling the Oklahoma Blood Institute to see about donating some blood, and I encourage everyone else to do the same (only to your own respective blood banks).

I'd also like to take it a step further. As a breastfeeding mother and advocate, I realize that the need for breast milk is higher than ever in Haiti right now. And this is where you guys come in: please, please, PLEASE help me research to find out if there are any breast milk banks that are donating to Haiti. What an easy way to help out that could grant such a huge impact on someone's life.

If you find out any information, please let me know either in my comments here, by email (babybeatnik at gmail dot com) or via Twitter (@babybeatnik - I am also keeping an eye on the tag #Breastmilk4Haiti).

Thanks so much!

Great idea, wish I was still breastfeeding and I would do the same. Keep us updated x

That's wonderful. I donated $$$ and I'm going to call my American Red Cross location near me this morning to see about donating blood.
