Help Get a Google Doodle Promoting Breastfeeding!

We’re always excited to hear about creative ways to promote breastfeeding, so we loved this idea from a member of the Breastfeeding Task Force of Santa Clara asking Google to create a “Google Doodle” in support of breastfeeding.

What’s a Google Doodle? Google has a team of artists, known as the Doodlers, who make changes to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, causes, and important events. They’ve created over 1000 designs commemorating a wide range of events from Lucille Ball’s Birthday to the Anniversary of PacMan. A doodle in support of breastfeeding could be a fun way to promote breastfeeding to the millions of people who visit Google every day.

To lend your voice of support, send an email to Here’s a sample email:

Dear Google Doodlers,

We, the breastfeeding support and promotion community, would be delighted to have a doodle for World Breastfeeding Week, 1-7 August 2012. World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year in over 176 countries around the world, and this year marks the 20th anniversary.

Thanks for considering this proposal.

Would you like to see a breastfeeding doodle?  Do you think it could help bring positive attention to breastfeeding?
