Here's a message I've just received about World Breastfeeding Week and a way you can draw attention to any event you are planning.
Announcing the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) 2008 Virtual Torch Run
WABA is pleased to announce the launch of the WBW 2008 Virtual Torch Run.
A virtual torch will be lighted up on the world map for every pledge that WABA receives for a WBW activity planned all around the world.
The WBW 2008 Virtual Torch Run is taking place now on the WBW website www.worldbreastfeedingweek.org.
All you need to do is to complete the pledge form attached and submit it to WABA and a virtual torch will be lighted up for you.
Please forward this news to as many people as you know and let us all participate in this virtual torch run for breastfeeding.

P.S. Whilst WBW is officially celebrated from 1-8 August annually, there are many countries which celebrate during the months of October and November. To take part in the WBW Virtual Torch Run, all that matters is that you are celebrating WBW in the year of 2008.
