Greetings Breastfeeding Cafe Fans!
Here we are! Almost July so the 2010 Breastfeeding Cafe is a little over a month away.
Wait. No it’s not! We are starting early this year!
Starting July 18th the Breastfeeding Cafe will be hosting a Blog Carnival. For two weeks, each day, we will have a different breastfeeding related topic and a guest blogger posting on this blog. We will also invite other bloggers to post about the topic and we will link to their blog. Have a blog? This is your chance to become involved! You can post on all of the topics or just some of the topics. The point is to discover our Baby Friendly Community online! Stay tuned for more info on our Blog Carnival.
We have started soliciting local businesses and organizations to participate in our Baby Friendly Community. All they have to do is display the International Breastfeeding Symbol (provided by the Utah Breastfeeding Colalition) at their place of business (or online, if that is how they contact their patrons). We will display their logo, or a photo of the International Breastfeeding Symbol on location, at the Cafe and on our website. This is such a powerful way for local businesses and organizations to declare themselves Baby Friendly. Please let me know if you have a business or organization who would like to participate!
Our volunteer coordinator Meghan is going to start contacting people to fill volunteer shifts and help out with special events. If you would like to be one of our volunteers please contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Official 2010 Breastfeeding Cafe Kickoff event will be Thursday July 29th from 6:00 to 9:00 at the Alumni Hall at University of Utah’s Spencer F. and Cleone P. Eccles Health Sciences Education Building. Find out all you need to know about what Baby Friendly means. Please plan to attend!
As usual, we have plenty to do! Please contact me if you would like to help out with the planning of the 2010 Breastfeeding Cafe or if you have any questions.
