#LaJoieAuSuivant, a good action to give to the next
Each trimester, I will donate $ 1 per Breast Milk Jewel sold to an organization related to breastfeeding or parenting. It is possible that additional actions will be put in place, in addition to the $ 1 per sale, in the coming months.
A new organization will be chosen each trimester to receive money to help serve its users and to promote the kindness and humanism of its actions towards the family.
Do you have an organization to suggest for the next trimester?

The organization that will receive the next donation of #LaJoieAuSuivant (for the months of August, September and October 2020) will be the Canadian Cancer Society

During the trimester of August, September and October 2018, we have raised 79$ that we have giving back to Jannie Houle Photographie!
When my first daughter was born, photography became for me one of my hobbies. Having always dreamed of making art my job, I decided to jump into the water and get into professional photography. Over the months, the hobbie that I cherished became a passion. So today, I can say that I do what I love in life. I like to make this service accessible to those who can not afford it and to give my time to others to immortalize the most precious moments of their lives. But what I appreciate most is having access to these moments and capturing the small details that matter most: the emotional look of a fiancee during the vows; the smile of a toddler during feeding; the tears of the mother who gives life. I am grateful to live what I live and would love to give as much as I receive. – Jannie

Once again this year, 7 new mothers have benefited from it and will soon be crowned breastfeeding mothers.
To be self-financing, we had the idea a few years ago to open an ecoboutique that wants to be the most Quebec and ecological possible for the people of the region. Our small boutique offers exclusive products on the North Shore and are offered at a reduced price to people who are members of the source. A nice way to help us while buying local.

A multi-faceted Motherhood: immersion in the grandiose and subtle, beautiful and at least beautiful … I realized that to become a parent was to surrender to greater than oneself.

During the trimester of February, March and April 2020 , we have raised $157 that we have giving back to Fondation J’allume une étoile !
Their mission is to offer a free professional photography service to parents who are faced with the premature death of a child, whether it is a death at birth, in utero or in the context of palliative or neonatal care.
They believe these photos can help parents who are going through the ordeal of losing a child. They represent a tangible memory and also allow them to present their child to their immediate entourage, families and friends.
Losing a child as a result of the disease is an ordeal more than difficult to overcome and the last moments will be forever engraved in the memory of loved ones.
In addition, some children fear that they will be forgotten after they leave. End-of-life photography can be reassuring for the child and thus help the family, parents and child, to go through this process of mourning.
The importance of these pictorial memories in the grieving process has been demonstrated more than once. The photographs are a great comfort to the parents and allow them to immortalize the love they had for this little being so quickly passed.
