CHICAGO – June 3, 2004 – In the spring of 2004, the members of and, websites dedicated to nursing mothers who share breastfeeding information and parenting advice, decided to organize a cookbook as a charitable fundraiser.

Upon learning that a member, Amy Lucas of Cahokia, Illinois, was tragically killed in a car accident on May 3, 2004, the members decided to donate the majority of the proceeds to the Amy Lucas Family Trust to assist in the support of her husband and five children. The Trust, managed by the Abundant Love Church in Cahokia, Illinois, will receive 80% of project profits; the remaining 20% will be donated to La Leche League International, a breastfeeding advocacy group Mrs. Lucas supported.

The cookbook, titled “Making More Than Milk: Food for the Whole Family” contains 500 recipes, helpful parenting tips and advice for nursing mothers, all contributed by members of the international community.

The professionally published, hardcover book will cost $12.00, plus shipping. All orders must be pre-paid. Orders may be placed on-line, payment will be accepted via PayPal or by money order or personal check. Orders must be placed by July 31, 2004. Cookbooks will be delivered in September.
