 The Our Milk Money Monthly Newsletter,  June 2010

Take my word for it, the Moms and Dads of are people that you want to know. They understand the meaning of sacrifice. They aren't driven by money and fame, but by the love of their children, and the life they want to provide for them. No where else on the internet can you see exactly where your money goes when you make a purchase. You can make the choice to convert your every day spending into some extra "milk money" for a parent who has chosen to work twice as hard for a fraction of the pay. Everyone wins. And wins. And wins.We have so many great things to share with you this month! More terrific blog contributors, more fun and educational podcasts to catch up on, 3 inspirational spotlights to read, and a whole lot more!
Don't forget to tell your Dad that you love him. It's going to be a happy June!

A Natural!
by OtherDan

Having listened to hours and hours of radio over the years, I have to say, (Ally) has the gift of gab. I think the show will make a lot of people smile and laugh for various reasons despite some sweeping generalizations; which actually add to the charm of the whole thing. Because she speaks from her perspective. But, ultimately I think this whole grande mission  of creating a network (Milk Money) for working parents to deliver their products in an efficient way with the aim of empowering families is actually very noble and worthwhile.
