It is that time of year again to think about the breastfeeding challenge.
**Join the Global Breastfeeding Challenge 2008!** Women around the world will be putting their hands up and being counted in on October 11th at 11am local time. This fun health promotion event is for the most children at one site, the country with the most participants and in North America the Challenge is for the largest number of participants in one area. Whether you have organized a site before or not join us and take part!! Sites vary from one or two mothers to hundreds and every child counts. Register a site today. It costs nothing and is very easy.
This year the event has gone global! Currently, there are 17 countries and 283 sites involved and we hope that every area will be well represented. We would truly love to show the media that all of the world is concerned about breastfeeding. It does not matter how big or how small one’s site is, every baby counts. We hope you will join us this October 11th in showing not only the rest of the world but your community, how important breastfeeding is for a good start in an infant’s life.
Please help support breastfeeding by sharing this invitation with your contacts who may be interested.
