The day after Christmas in 2015, people in North Texas were devastated by a tornado that ended up taking 13 lives and damaging at least 2,000 buildings, leaving many displaced or without power. One mom knew that would be especially difficult for nursing mothers, who wouldn’t be able to pump or store breastmilk for their kids. She reached out to the community to offer help, and it wasn’t long before she found a mom of twins who’d lost her 500-ounce supply of breastmilk in the storm. Joining forces with other moms, she was able to get that mother what she needed—and then created a Facebook group to help even more parents feed their babies.
