Over the past two years, we’ve spent countless hours interviewing our storytellers and traveling the country to photograph them and their families for our upcoming book series – Bainne Cíche: Stories of Breastfeeding Ireland.
Why share stories?
Stories allow for emotional connection, the imparting of wisdom, and a greater capacity for understanding.
We hope that, through documenting and sharing breastfeeding photographs and stories, our readers will deepen their understanding of and connection to breastfeeding, experience better breastfeeding outcomes, be more easily connected with breastfeeding supports when necessary, and witness breastfeeding rates steadily increase in Ireland and beyond.
While we’ve absorbed many of the costs of creating this fantastic book series, we still have significant expenses to face before we can officially get this impactful book out into the world. With your incredible support, we know we’ll be able to get there sooner.
Your donations make a huge difference!
Below you can easily select the amount you would like to donate, as well as choose whether you’d like to donate once, weekly, monthly, or quarterly.
If selecting a one-time donation, you will only be charged once. If selecting recurring donations, you will support our publications by being charged based on the frequency you select.
Your donations support our publications by assisting with:
-Fuel, food, and accommodation while traveling to photograph featured families
-Software to record and transcribe interviews
-And, most importantly, writing services so that we can take each incredible interview with our storytellers and put them in written word (each story costs between €500 – €600 and we currently have over 60 interviews that will go on to be featured in our books); Writing services for our first book, alone, add up to around €10,000. This is, by far, our single largest expense and we would so appreciate your support to ensure that these interviews and stories are given the life and presentation they deserve.
