Got milk?  
Anyone breastfeeding and pumping and collecting a freezer full of milk that you do not need? I am and I wanted to share a resource with you that I found. There are milk banks that you can donate to, but I have found them to be difficult to deal with if you do not live near them. However, there is also private milk donation where you can give your milk directly to someone who needs it. The organization I am dealing with is http://www.milkshare.com
and their listserve is at
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/MilkShare/
They encourage responcible donation by asking the donors to be blood tested (the same way they are for the milk banks). They also suggest that the recipents pasturize the milk before use.

Likewise if you would like to be a recipient, you can get info there.
