Dear Member  ,
At the end of this month, Our Milk Money will officially turn a year old. With over 250 members and nearly 6000 supporters, we're pleased to say that we're not celebrating alone.
To highlight the extraordinary members that have made our accomplishments possible, we've made a recent addition to the site:
The POMMO Index: Here is where you will be able to check out the full list of members, their fantastic businesses, and the market in which to find them in. Now you will be able to connect with more parents across the United States and Canada with less effort!
It's been an exciting year, we've learned a lot and we've been fortunate enough to be able to connect with so many great community activists. Please join us in reminiscing these memorable moments by visiting our newly developed Photo Album. We will continue to add pictures and share many more remarkable connections that have yet to occur in the years ahead together.
We thank you for your continued support and especially to all of our dynamic parent-preneurs who are working so hard to provide for their children. We look forward to growing with you each year!
