Have a voice. Share your thoughts. Be among the first to tell the world, “I Breastfeed Because…”
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7, Ameda breast pumps launch the “I Breastfeed Because…” campaign to give moms a voice on this important subject. Mothers who are currently breastfeeding, or have in the past, are invited to support breastfeeding by sharing their stories through 20-second videos on why they chose to breastfeed.
But, before the official launch of the campaign, we want to ask YOU to upload a video sharing your views. It’s simple! Just record a 20-second video – from a flip cam or web cam – that starts with the statement, “I Breastfeed Because…”
and email the video to Rashidah. See below for posting instructions.
For every video, comment or tweet shared, Ameda will make a donation to the Human Milk Bank Association of North America (HMBANA), a non-profit association of donor human milk banks established in 1985 to set standards for and to facilitate establishment and operation of milk banks in North America.
But, there’s more, all mothers who share “I Breastfeed Because” videos will be entered to win the grand prize of a $2,500 nursery makeover or one of 25 secondary prizes — $50 American Express gift cards.
Start recording your video now! (It will only take a few seconds)
If the file is too large to send via email, feel free to use the upload form.
If you have any questions or concerns or need any additional information, please contact Rashidah Ferguson.
Update: 8/3/2010 – Mothers who are currently breastfeeding, or have in the past, are encouraged to log onto www.ibreastfeedbecause.com to upload 20-second videos that share the reasons why they chose to breastfeed.
