Six months ago today, Emma Kwasnica started a milky revolution. Using Facebook as a platform to connect mothers with extra breast milk to families in need of donor milk, Emma created the Human Milk 4 Human Babies Global Network. This network is now run by more than 280 volunteer administrators, overseeing 130 Facebook pages, representing more than 50 countries.
I made this Mama's Milk carton and breastfeeding symbol cookie as a thank you to Emma. Her tireless dedication to ensuring that all babies have access to mama's milk, even if that milk comes from anther mother, has changed lives and helped families all over the world.
