GIVE / SPONSOR


Thank you for your gift to Saving Our Sons. 

Your donation will be put to immediate, real-life, baby-saving use in one of the following ways: 

*Intact info exposition registration and materials, freely given to thousands of expecting and new families (Saving Our Sons has on-the-gound intact chapters in every U.S. state, Canada, Australia, the U.K, Africa, South Korea, and Puerto Rico). We register for and attend as many maternity, baby and family expos as we are able to raise funding for. This impact is thee most significant way to change the greatest number of new parents hearts/minds who would otherwise never receive the intact message. Expositions play a vital role in saving babies from genital cutting, and ensuring tomorrow's men remain intact, and the need for SOS expos is great.

*Intact Info Packs, books, DVDs, intact care items, materials sent to those who've requested but cannot otherwise access them (or those who've had a relative/friend request items be sent). Most pressing are the needs for reaching families whose babies are in the NICU and remain intact, but undecided about circumcision. 

*Awareness raising demonstrations for genital autonomy. Saving Our Sons hosts respectful demonstrations in front of major conventions (AAP, CDC, ACOG, International AIDS Conference) and in large cities and high traffic areas. During these demonstrations we take a professional, educational approach to awareness raising and pass out hundreds of informational items each day, having countless one-on-one conversations with passerbys and conference attendees. The ripple effect is great!

*Don't Retract Packs for physicians. Saving Our Sons receives approximately 15 reports each week of physicians or clinical staff who are forcibly retracting children, or encouraging parents to do so with their baby. These packs are put together by clinicians volunteering with SOS, and are well received - often making a real change in patient protocol. We would like to ship regardless of a family's ability to cover the $4 cost, but need people to come on board and support this effort

*Continuation of the SavingSons.org website and compelling content that comes from Saving Our Sons on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond - reaching an audience of over 65,000 individuals, and providing advocates with gentle, research-based, respectful resources they can be confident in sharing with friends, family, clients and patients. 

By giving to Saving Our Sons, you are ensuring that every dollar goes directly into saving a baby from genital cutting, changing the cultural mindset about the intact male body and foreskin to be one that is positive and productive, and empowering our movement forward as we become an INTACT nation again! 

Thank you for being an important part of this SOS mission.
