Milk Donation

Oprah's Magazine ran an article about milk donation. Here's the link: http://www.oprah.com/article/omagazine/200903_omag_milk_bank/1

For those of you who are interested in donating milk, I've donated milk with Milkshare. Here's their link: http://milkshare.birthingforlife.com/

When I tried to stay in college, I pumped during my school day. T never took a bottle, so the milk went unused. I donated my milk to a woman who had twins a couple months younger than me. She had supply issues stemming from having multiples and a c-section. It was a one time donation, since I only stayed in school for three months. I was lucky to find someone in my area who just came over to my home to pick up the milk.

Has anyone else donated their milk? I think this is such a great thing to do, to give mamas an option other than formula to feed their babies when they can't nurse or have supply issues.
