We continue to discover new things about donor human milk every day. We know that it’s packed with proteins, minerals, vitamins, and fat designed specifically to meet a baby’s need. We know that it’s full of thousands of protective antibodies, growth factors, and cells that fight infections, help a baby’s brain develop, and lays a foundation for a healthy future. And, we know that it’s full of love—the love of caring for your community, the love of sharing a precious resource, the love of saving the life of a child who otherwise would not survive.
By making a recurring monthly donation today, you make a lasting commitment to preterm and medically-fragile infants, giving them a chance to grow, thrive, and survive.
When you make a recurring monthly donation of $25 or more, you will receive a limited-edition Milk is Science and Love tote bag designed by Austin illustrator Laura Fisk of Fisk and Fern. The tote bag features two babies eagerly awaiting the Milk Bank Express stork with her basket of safe donor human milk. Surrounded by milk drops featuring many of the lifesaving components of donor human milk—fat, carbohydrates, protein, energy, and antibodies—we’re reminded that Milk is Science and Love.
