Infant Nutrition Twitter Party TONIGHT, let's help save #preemies in the #NICU sponsored by @hhmilkbank

'The Official #TwitterPartyDJ', @Tracy_Iglesias of Ascending Butterfly (@Ascending1) is hosting tonight's #HHMilkBank Infant Nutrition Twitter Party along with @JessieNuez, the tweet chat is being sponsored by @hhmilkbank, not only will there be prizes, but we are going to learn ways to help preemies currently in the NICU! So many moms have reached out to me since the RSVP page for this twitter party was posted, to tell me that when they had their babies, they produced more breastmilk than they even knew what to do with. It's so sad to know that so much life saving milk is being thrown away when there are babies that desperately need it!

This will also be a bi-lingual twitter party conducted in English and Spanish! The English RSVP page is HERE, (the rafflecopter widget is also on this page, so you can just RSVP here as well) and the Spanish RSVP page is HERE.

Helping Hands Milk Bank is operated by Prolacta Bioscience, they collect excess breast milk to help save the lives of babies who are in the neonatal intensive care unit. Excess breast milk is used to make nutritional products from 100% human milk which has a significant impact on the lives of the infants and their families. They also make the donation work harder, for every ounce of donated qualified breast milk collected by Helping Hands Milk Bank $1 will be contributed to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in support of Breast Cancer Research.

  1. This is great! And I'd love to participate, but I don't "TWEET" - I'm on Fb, blogfrog, Google+, Googlee Friend Connect & Linky - I just don't have the time for Twitter! Oh well, maybe they'll do something on FB for the rest of us to join in on!

  2. @1955nurse - I'm sorry you weren't able to join us. I absolutely love twitter as you know, but I realize it may not be everyone's cup of tea, thank you for your suggestion, I will look into finding out if we can run the parties simultaneously on Facebook as well as twitter. I am a blogfrog member also, and maybe we can run a simultaneous chat there or on facebook during the twitter party. And if you change your mind about twitter please let me know! :)
