The Big Pink Bus – Latch On America!
If you haven’t heard of the Big Pink Bus yet, chances are you will soon or maybe it will even be in your city next.
Milk for Thought is the organization founded by Ryan Comfort that is behind this Big Pink Bus touring around the country. The goal? Connect breastfedding advocates, experts, community organizations and parents. Through MIlk For Thought, Ryan hopes to bridge the gap between all of the breastfeeding support available and the moms and parents out there seeking this support but having a hard time finding it. He pointed out that all to often there is the mom sitting behind her computer googling “berastfeeding help” in desparation but doesn’t connect with the wealth of supprt in her own comunity that wants nothing more than to help her. They are using this tour to listen and learn with grand plans for an extensive online support forum for breastfeeding.
The bus is stopping in more than 30 cities over 10,000 miles. You can check out the route here.
About Milk for Thought:
At Milk for Thought, we want to change the landscape of breastfeeding — from attitudes to advocacy to education. Our goals are to work collaboratively to empower pregnant and breastfeeding moms by connecting them to local experts and counselors, baby-friendly hospitals and birthing centers, support groups, and other mothers who are out there and want so much to help. Instantly, new moms will get the support, encouragement, and shoulder to lean on that they need to have a successful breastfeeding journey. Millions of people within the breastfeeding community work very hard to create change. As an online platform, a collaborative backbone of sorts, Milk for Thought will channel that energy and passion and work together with those amazing individuals and organizations on behalf of new moms. And it’s not just moms who will be learning and connecting — the support community will also learn, grow and expand its impact exponentially! We want to work with everyone who is creating change for breastfeeding and show others exactly how to replicate that success. Collaboration means no one has to start from scratch or go it alone!
