Miracle Milk™ Stroll – FAQ

  • How do I register? http://www.bestforbabes.org/miracle-milk-stroll

  • Do I need to donate to register? Yes.

  • How much do I need to donate? Up to you.  Anything from $5 to $5000 is appreciated.

  • Do I have to buy the Tshirt? No, but everyone wearing the same shirt shows solidarity of support.

  • I paid for a t-shirt, when will I get it?  Shirts will be printed and shipped on either 4/21 or 4/28 depending on when you make your purchase. Shirts are being created by Inktothepeople.com and a signifant portion of each tshirt sale is donated back to BFB for this event.  If you missed the chance to purchase by 4.28, you can still buy a shirt it just won’t arrive in time for you to wear it to your event.

  • Can I participate even if I can’t make it? Absolutely!  You can donate, and/or buy the shirt, and/or donate milk, and/or LIKE BFB on FB to help show the world that the human milk cause is real and is growing!  You can donate here and buy the shirt here.  If you are donating milk, do not bring milk to your event.  Please contact our partner HMBANA directly at www.hmbana.org and let them know that you are applying to be a donor in connection with this event. You can also print out the Miracle Milk DONOR CARD to send with your donation, also available on the landing page.

  • Can I make a donation and get the shirt if I am not coming to the stroll? Yes.

  • Where can I get the poster to print out? Right on the landing page.

  • Where can I get a “badge” to share on a website? Right on the landing page.

  • Where does the money go?  Proceeds benefit Best for Babes and our Partners NECSociety and HMBANA to fund education for parents, medical directors, hospital administrators, and health care providers about the existence, accessibility, safety and life-saving power of human milk and donor milk for our most fragile and compromised infants in the NICU. All of us are working together to create more demand for human milk diet priorities and milk bank programs in our NICUs.

  • I’m in Canada — can I participate in a stroll or donate?  YES! There are strolls registered in Calgary, Edmonton, Kitchener, and other cities. Check the Miracle Milk™ Events Page or our website List of Locations page for Canadian sites.

  • Will Canadian donations make their way to a Canadian Milk Bank? Not directly. Proceeds will go to the fund-at-large which will be shared with our partners NECSociety and the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA), which oversees Canada’s three milk banks as well as US non-profit milk banks. Canadian participants can make a direct donation to their local milk bank in addition to a smaller donation to BFB which is required to register.

  • Do I need to bring anything to the stroll?  No.

  • Can I bring a picnic to the stroll? That depends on the restrictions, if any, at the place you are convening. If you have smaller kids with you we know you will probably have snacks on hand but we’d prefer to keep this a stroll and not a picnic!

  • Does BFB have any materials we can distribute to passersby if they ask questions?  We should NOT distribute anything to the public or we will be crossing the line into solicitation or demonstrating.

  • Can I bring my older kids?  Yes, PLEASE!

We hope that answers some, if not all, of your questions! Please feel free to get in touch with us or to ask your questions on the Facebook Page!
