Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt
The British National Breastfeeding week will be celebrated in 2012 from June 24th – 30th.
I will let Karen (who organises the hunt) explain the why and how:
“The goal of the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt 2012 is to add a little bit of fun and to raise awareness of breastfeeding. Many women do not reach their breastfeeding goals, stopping much earlier than they intended to. During the Month of June bloggers and companies that support breastfeeding and have something to say about it will be sharing their views, experiences and knowledge with you so that you can make an informed choice about your very own breastfeeding journey and perhaps give you the confidence and information you need to achieve yours and your babies breastfeeding goals.
You will hear from a large collection of Mums and family members as well as companies sharing their experiences around these four themes, and we ask that you take a few minutes each day to read the articles and share them with your friends so that you can learn something new, share a top tip by commenting on the articles and be entered to win the amazing Grand Prize!
All you need to do is subscribe to this blog so that you can receive updates about the Hunt and information on where to find the newest articles and posts. As soon as bloggers and companies get onboard there information will be published on this site so that you can see who’s taking part and go along to read their past posts and learn about how they support breastfeeding through products or charitable work.
Once the Hunt begins at 10:00am on June 1st, 2012 you will be able to visit the bloggers, companies and organizations websites to hunt for their breastfeeding articles which will include the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt 2012 logo. Once you have read the article and found the logo you can enter the competition by using the Rafflecopter widget which will ask you to leave a comment about the article or answer a simple question about breastfeeding. You will also have additional chances to enter the competition by sharing the competition on facebook and twitter. Each time you comment about an article or share the competition you will receive X point. Once you have accumulated XXX points you will be eligible to enter to win the Grand Prize. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough time to accumulate this many points as there will be smaller competitions to enter throughout the month and you may even find out about some amazing coupon codes and offers to use at some of the company websites – so stay tuned for more information.”
I have decided to join this wonderful event by writing each week a blog around a different theme.
Week 1 – Prematurity
Week 2 – Article – It doesn’t matter
Week 3 – Community Support
Week 4 – Allergies
I hope that you will find my blogs informative and supportive. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you would like to make. I look forward to hearing from you.
