What were the major accomplishments of your organization in the last 12 months?
Over 50 Your Whole Baby and Your Whole Body tables and booths were held in 2019. Our events included baby expos, Pride festivals, natural living fairs, professional conferences, music festivals, city fairs, and more! We continue to reach families online with over 40,000 people being part of our Facebook groups for education and support. We have sent hundreds of "Retraction Injury" packets to doctors, and "Freebie Info" packets to parents. We continue to grow the professional and accessible content on our website. We raised funds to display a billboard especially for the eyes of doctors traveling to this year's AAP convention. Our development directors created a plan to guide the organization that includes both long-term and short-term goals. We launched an equity work group to help our organization evaluate successes and shortcomings in reaching and representing people from oppressed/marginalized communities.
What are the major plans for your organization in the next 12 months?
We will continue to grow our in-person outreach by funding event tables in as many states as we have volunteers. We are working on forming and strengthening partnerships with medical professionals who are willing to share our Intact Care and/or Circumcision Education information. We are constantly evaluating and adjusting our policies both for our volunteers and for our online group members to ensure that we are treating people and reaching people in the best ways possible. We have several things in the works including new products, content for intact teens, and blog articles. We are introducing a membership program with exclusive items and content for monthly donors.
What makes your organization unique among Intactivist organizations?
Your Whole Baby has a significant presence both online and on the ground reaching expectant parents as well as many others. In both of those arenas, we provide a safe and gentle space for people to ask questions and learn new information. We are extremely careful to be factual, persuasive, and accommodating all at the same time. We are constantly reviewing and updating our materials and our methods to be inclusive, respectful, accurate, and kind. This year we were sought out by 3 different events to come and share our resources via an info table, and we are thrilled to be a go-to resource for intact education.
Is there a leadership succession plan in place to continue the organization beyond your tenure? Please summarize.
Your Whole Baby has 5 development directors who work alongside our executive director. This team will continue to grow, adapt, and function as needed.
What else would you like your potential donors and volunteers to know?
We exist on donations from both dedicated intactivists and people we have reached who are not connected to intactivism, and we are grateful for any help they give us. We are working toward paying small salaries and stipends for our leaders who put in countless hours of volunteer time, but our main priority will always be to spend the donations on reaching as many people as we can. These expenses include paying for our websites, growing our online presence and reach, doing in-person outreach at events, funding targeted billboard campaigns, mailing information to healthcare professionals, and sending info to parents. We meet every need and every request for information that we are able, and we appreciate all the financial help we get in funding these efforts.
