Come and see a film to support the Hearts Milk Bank

With one week to go, we ask you all to come and see Milk – Born into this World with us – hear about our work, the progress as we get everything set up, and the research we will be starting up this year:

Through an intimate and artistic lens, Milk brings a universal perspective on the politics, commercialisation and controversies surrounding birth and infant feeding over the canvas of stunningly beautiful visuals and poignant voices from around the globe. Inspiring, informative, provocative and sensitive, Milk celebrates bringing a new life into this world with a strong call to action and reflection.

Help us to establish the Hearts Milk Bank!

Today is the day – after 6 months of work from a team of over 20 people, we have launched our crowdfunding campaign! By the time I have even managed to post this, we have already raised over £1000 – critical momentum to build towards our target.

As a start-up, and the first ever social enterprise milk bank in the UK, it is incredibly difficult to raise the necessary investment to create the safe and sustainable service that is so desperately needed – nobody wants to take that first risk. But we have been brave, and a little bit bold, and ever so slightly single-minded, and completely believe in what we are doing. If we can show support is out there, we have the chance to raise the full amount we need to start operating by the end of 2016 – we will literally be helping to save lives of scores of babies by preventing life-threatening complications of prematurity.

Please watch our film here that explains how breast milk protects sick babies – we will be telling you more about the children featured and their parents over the next few weeks, but safe to say there have been many tears shed in the making of this beautiful 4 minutes.

Thank you for sharing!
