The Woman Behind the Nomination
Jannette Festival, Founder of Northern Star Mother’s Milk Bank, has been nominating her charity for literally the past three years. On March 6th she finally heard her name called! Her patience and persistence, and really determination, is remarkable. And you will see why, when you learn what she has started.
Northern Star Mother’s Milk Bank provides donor human milk for premature babies. This is not only food for these fragile babies, it is life-saving medicine. Caring women can donate their breast milk, which is then tested, pasturized, and tested again before being distributed to babies through prescription. Approximately 80% of the milk goes to babies in hospital and 20% to sick babies at home.
There is an anonymous donor willing to match our donations, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000!
