Boppy Company giving away support pillows to low income families

Posted May 5, 2012

Because I love my Boppy and couldn't have lived without it in those early months with my own newborns, I'm sharing that The Boppy Company has partnered with the nonprofit Nurse-Family Partnership to provide the infant feeding support pillows to first-time, low-income moms.

North Carolina is one of three states to get the pillows. The Boppy Company's goal is to donate 500 pillows. North Carolina would get about half of them, I'm told.

But just how many moms will get free a free Bobby depends on how many people go to Bobby's website to show their support for the donations.

If you'd like to participate, visit www.Boppy.com/mothersdaysupport and click on a special “Give Your Support” icon. No donation is required.

For every click received between May 1 and May 14, The Boppy Company will donate $1 toward a Boppy pillow to be given to a needy new mom who is enrolled in the Nurse-Family Partnership. The partnership is a national organization that helps first-time, low-income moms. There are about 10 Nurse-Family Partnership locations in North Carolina serving 16 counties.

    Any chance someone could correct the spelling errors?

    With the economy still on the mend, there are plenty of "repeat" moms who are now considered low-income due to unexpected employment changes (job loss, medical issues, etc.) I agree that it would be nice if this program was available for other than first time moms, but I'm glad there is a program to provide some assistance to first time moms.

    I love this fundraiser, such an easy way to give back.

    Gee jimcool, do you think maybe "mothers of low income" should have one child as long as they're in such dire straits? Better yet, how about not making kids you can't afford?

    What this really tells is that second time mothers of low income and even in more need because of dire straits are even more shuned for a supposed sin of a second baby. Maybe virgins are next to fill to boppy list. This type of thinking by self absorbed bunk thinkers does not belong in a public news listing. Do these flips think all low income second time mothers suddenly hit the lottery because they now help only first time mothers? Creepy indeed! Need is need, stupids!
