Holy smokes! You guys made 2017 AMAZING!! You bought felt walls, you bought prints of sloths, you bought greeting cards painted with breast milk (it’s weird, I know)! You placed orders from January through December; from down the street and across the globe. Add it all up and what do you get? One phenomenal year.
The first order came from Colorado on January 2. The last, was placed on December 30, and went all the way from Utah to Maine! In between, another 485 orders were made from 42 states (plus a military base, DC and Puerto Rico) and 22 countries.
The furthest? All the way to New Zealand – that’s over 7,200 miles! The country with the most orders (excluding United States)? France with 15 orders. I also got to send a few to Czech Republic and one to Cyprus! Next time, I think I’ll stuff myself into one of those packages.
The state with the most orders? California with 47 orders, then Texas with 36 orders, then Florida with 28.
But of all these numbers, one is the most important: $1,068.
That’s right, we donated $1,068 to the RMCHF Mother’s Milk Bank. That equals 267 ounces of breast milk that the they were able to process thanks to your generosity in 2017. But they process WAY more than that every single day. So let’s keep this going! I’ll keep making crafts, if you’ll keep buying them! I was able to fly out to visit them in January, and I was bawling the whole time! The amount of milk they process is insane! The lab techs pour milk sent in from selfless moms, then they pasteurize it and ship it out to hospitals around the country. This is the lab where the magic happens:
I can’t even explain how awesome I think they are.
And how awesome I think you are. Thank you for buying crafts. Thank you for supporting my little family.
