Happy New Year!

We wish to thank you for being such loyal patrons to our community of self-employed parents, and if you are just now joining us, we welcome you with open arms!
Our Milk Money is celebrating 1 year of inception this month, as it was just last this time last year that we began receiving hundreds of emails from across the country from parents who were interested in our mission and creating a support system for one another. Although it would be several more months before we would launch the Our Milk Money Business Directory online, we wish to celebrate and acknowledge the excitement and passion for this collaborative goal which began January 2008.
If you are just now joining us, we hope that you will find comfort, support and much success in the coming year from us.
Thank you for using our business directory for your everyday purchases and continuing your support of these hard working parents who have a product or service to offer you as a means to give more to their children.

Here is to a Happy and Healthy 2009 for all of us!
