Sweet Songs for a Good Cause

As some of you may know, I'm a mom.

I know, I know, I never talk about that aspect of my life. But it's true. I'm a mother of 10 month old beautiful baby girl. See the snap for evidence:

I'm also a proud breastfeeding mommy (I actually don't talk too much about that here. After all, my grandfather reads this blog. Hey Granndaddy!) Let's just say that I believe in breast milk.

Which is why I'm so happy to be a part of "Sweet Songs for Families from Austin Mamas" or as we like to call it, "Sweet Songs." Monica Cravotta, Noelle Hampton, Erin Ivey, Gretchen Janzow, Libby Kirkpatrick, Mary Londos, Sarah Sharp, and Elizabeth Suggs and I have all contributed songs that are set to appear on an upcoming CD that will benefit the Austin Mother's Milk Bank.

The Milk Bank is a very cool organization. They collect, pasturize and store donated breast milk. According to the Mother's Milk Bank of Austin, "The need for human milk becomes paramount for premature and ill infants, who are six to ten times more likely to acquire life-threatening infections during the critical neonatal period if they are fed infant formula instead of human milk."

We're lucky to have Sarah Hickman onboard as a producer and Andre Moran as an Engineer. All the studio time has been donated by Hideout Studios.

Dude, it's going to be awesome.

We do however, need to raise a little more do-re-mi before we can complete the record. And that's where you potentially come in. If you believe in the power of breast milk and the mission on the Mother's Milk Bank then you can help us help them by contributing to the making of the record.

The details are here. Why not start off the holiday giving a little early. It will make you feel rad. I promise.

this could very possibly be the most radical thing I ever heard of, literally and figuratively. Its like when selma hayek whipped out her breast, except yours is a musical breast.

Just another reason why Austin is one of the most awesome places on the face of the earth;)
