Introduce Yourself Here

I figured we should have an introduction thread.

Please share whatever you'd like, but especially why you've joined the group.

My name is Christie, and I have a 4 year old son. I'm a Navy wife, which is odd as I'm a Pagan liberal.
You can call me Christie, Rana, or RanaAurora. Any are fine by me. :)

I, obviously, feel very strongly about boycotting Nestle, and spreading the word of their money-grubbing, careless, callous and disgusting actions by the company... especially the ones that have resulted in the deaths of babies and their responding attitude.

Hi.....my name is Natalie.  I don't know much about what they are doing....so that is why I am interested in this group...I definately want to know more.  Thanks!  I'll do my very best to remember when I am shopping....crazy, though, how much they own!  sheesh  My boys will be disappointed in the Willy Wonka, but they'll be okay...lol  Hopefully enough happens with, I'm sure, many differnt boycotts on them, that they change things.

Hi ladies!  I am Carol and I am a SAHM with 2 IVF miracle boys (Jacob,9 and Phillip, almost 2).  I am still nursing the youngest and I am homeschooling the oldest because his needs were not being met in public school. 


I have been a passive Nestle boycotter for years - I can remember 20 years ago (I was 17) and my mom boycotted Nestle products.  That said, with mergers and acquisitions over the years I was unaware of some of the brands that are now owned by Nestle.  So I am committing myself to be more active in boycotting and letting others know about the boycott as well.

Glad to have you with us!
I saw you've got tons of anti-Nestle things on your profile, and I plan on doing the same!

I applaud you for having boycotted them!  I'm new to it, but it made me so angry to more I researched, that I can't see NOT doing it.

Hi,  my name is Tora and I learned about the nestle boycott when I was pregnant with my only son (4months) and that's how I made the decision to BF. I'm an army wife, a lactivist, and a libertarian. I'm pretty opinionated but not close-minded... I believe very strongly in "natural living" and I hate the FDA!
