This time last year things were looking a bit bleak at Lactivist and there was a chance that I would have to close down.
This time this year I am pleased to say that I have no intention of closing and with huge amounts of help from the amazing, talented, knowledgable and downright lovely Lactivists who have taken the weight off me by becoming admins on the Lactivist Facebook page. The continued support from fantastic Lactivist Sponsors who advertise on www.lactivist.net and literally keep it running by paying towards it’s running costs and of course my wonderful customers at www.lactivist.co.uk and www.lactivistbling.co.uk some of which have stood by me for the 7 years I’ve been open.
You have all rallied round and helped things turn around at Lactivist and as a result I’ve been able to use some of the money coming in to produce flyers that promote breastfeeding, written with your help on Facebook. Next year I plan to do lots more of this type of thing, we already have a new one in the pipeline aimed promoting breastfeeding to people who run cafes and shops.
I’d like to give huge thanks to Antonia and Erica at www.becomeamumpreneur.com and Anne at www.scribere.co.uk for their help with attracting and keeping advertisers on Lactivist.net. Arianna and Michael at www.ihelm-enterprises.co.uk for fantastic customer service and technical help in times of crisis and lastly I’d like to give a special thanks to Georgina who’s amazing photos of her daughter in Lactivist t-shirts made it possible to get them into the NCT shop.
It’s been a tough year but worth the effort.
Thank you again everyone
