    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    Story

    We've been providing breastfeeding support at monthly mum to mum support groups in Calderdale for four years now. There are two LLL Leaders (accredited breastfeeding counsellors) on hand to help out with information and support - and the benefit to mothers of meeting other mums who've been through it and survived smiling is immense. This is about providing support and information to mothers who want to breastfeed, because we know many won't get the support they need to be successful and will have to stop before they want to.

    Our meetings are always free (although we appreciate donations), but we have running costs: we have to hire meeting rooms, provide refreshments, pay our insurance and affiliation fees. So I'm getting my shoes on and walking: 100km in seven days - starting Monday 13th May.

    If I can raise £1 a kilometre, that's enough to pay for another four months of meetings. £2 a kilometre, that will pay for our insurance and group fee too. £3 and I don't have to worry about money again until after Christmas. By that time I hope to have grant funding so we can double the meetings we're able to run and take them to new areas of Calderdale where the breastfeeding rates drop by 50% within the first eight weeks. That's a lot of mothers who don't get the support they need to feed their babies they way they've chosen to do so.

      I did it! 97.01km between Monday and Saturday, 15.56km today. I'm ready for a sit down - and to spend some time and energy building up my local group. Thank you all so much for your support. PHEW <3

      Day five and I'm up to 82.4km! I've had little legs with me today, so I thought it was going to be difficult to get walking, but he's managed 9.4km with me so far today (he doesn't yet know he has to walk into town to get his big brother later! I've had some lovely walks this week, exploring around where I live, work and do LLL

      Amazing! Shame this wasn’t 2 weeks earlier. I doubt Scott Haslam could’ve done that ;)

      We’ve just celebrated 2 years of breastfeeding with the support of LLL so here’s hoping many more mothers are supported to reach their goal
