Remember student and mom Karlesha Thurman? There is a picture that she snapped at her California State University graduation ceremony that went viral recently, with some complimenting her and showing wonderful support while others bashed her for publicly breastfeeding. With it being National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and with back-to-school upon us, MAM teamed up with Karlesha to stand up for moms’ rights to freely feed their children and to advance education. MAM is giving your baby the opportunity to become the strong, educated person Karlesha is by running a contest to win a $2,500 college savings bond at http://bit.ly/MAMlovetolearn. They also have a wonderful, exclusive Q & A with Karlesha about her experience that you can read here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/mam-usa/q-a-with-karlesha-thurman/10152593068254486/
