SPONSOR A SON / WAITING LIST



Sponsor A Son


We thank you for sponsoring one of the parents/families currently on the waiting list (below) for intact care / circumcision information and materials. Your donation will immediately be put to use to provide necessary and requested items to those who otherwise cannot afford or access them, but have written (or had a relative/friend write) asking for resources (books, an info pack, DVDs, etc.). Many of these requests come from those who do not have internet, so research is difficult to do. A lot of the families are living on a low income and do not otherwise have materials close at hand. Being able to empower parents in this way ensures their son is cared for in a pro-intact manner (both by staying intact and avoiding forced retraction). Gifts are first used to cover urgent requests and those for babies in the NICU when time is short. 

Donations may also be used to supply the ever important maternity and baby expos that take place each month across the U.S. and Canada. Currently, SOS has the ongoing need of approximately $15-20 per day for items that are sent (without cost) to expecting families, and to physicians and clinics in need of proper and current intact care (and forced retraction) information. Our goal is to never have to turn someone down who requests that items be anonymously sent. Any donation, of any amount, is put immediately and exclusively to the educational goal of saving babies from genital cutting and equipping medical personnel with intact care resources. 

We ship a small info set of pregnancy and new baby items FREE to anyone who emails to request. Subjects include circumcision, intact care, foreskin functions, breastfeeding information, babywearing, and baby sleep resources, as well as general new parent items (gentle discipline, mothering, fathering, etc.). Requests can be sent to SavingSons@gmail.com and a portion of gifts to SOS are used to cover the ongoing costs of producing and mailing these items out.

You may also choose to sponsor (above) with an easy monthly or annual gift. For as little as one dollar a month, these resources enable us to provide much needed materials to families who would otherwise go without, to keep a team of professionals close by to answer questions, to plant seeds of information in hospitals, physician's offices, childbirth education classes, Ronald McDonald Houses located near hospitals, baby expos, and to get general baby care items into the hands of mothers and fathers who'd otherwise not have them. We have the unique opportunity to reach out to many new parents today, and only with your help is this achievable.

SOS Supporters are welcome to join the private SOS group on Facebook for dialog and discussion with other advocates: FB.com/groups/SavingOurSons  If you are also an advocate for other aspects of gentle parenting, you are invited to join the Peaceful Parenting discussion group as well: FB.com/groups/PeacefulParentingMembers [Please email your name on Facebook to SavingSons@gmail.com if it is different from your sponsorship name to be added to the discussion groups.] In each group there will be bi-weekly give-aways to those who are supporting these baby-saving efforts. [If you are a business with an item to donate toward this cause, please email  SavingSons@gmail.com]. We also invite you to read a sampling of feedback and letters received here.
Thank you for being a part of something that makes a generations-long difference! 

WAITING LIST: 
Items will ship to the next person on the list - bottom to top - as donations come in OR be given immediately to those parents with a baby boy in the NICU if this urgent need arrises. If you would like to sponsor a particular family on this list for $16, please include a note or email SavingSons@gmail.com
