The Foregen Future Newsletter #3 August 1st, 2017

Posted by on August 01, 2017

Dear Foregen Supporters,

Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We have some important updates for you, and an overview of the best parts of July.

 What’s Happened Since Last Time?

  • We were expecting the experiments of June to be published at the end of July. Due to a bureaucratic technically we will have to delay the publication until the end of September. Rest assured, the science behind our experiments has proven successful, and we are still scheduled to meet our timeline. Once we are fully funded, we do not anticipate such logistical delays as we will be able to afford our own full-time research team and dedicated lab space.    
  • Donations for the month of July totaled $10,071, breaking the $10,000 barrier we mentioned last newsletter. Earlier in July our donation’s historical total passed $200,000 -  we are currently at $207,068.
  • We just hosted another successful event at Pride Fest in Toronto with the help of Oliver Ward. Please check out our description here.
  • Oren Saar is our new Assistant Director of Events. He will help Robert, our Events Director, with the planning and running of Foregen’s events. 
  • Finally, if you’re a supporter of Foregen and looking for a way to support us, please check out amazon smile. By using amazon smile every time you make a purchase, 0.5% will be donated to a nonprofit. In this instance, Foregen. Just make sure that you log in to smile.amazon.com - it's easy to use!

 Tell Me Something Interesting

  • Last newsletter we asked you to tell us why you support Foregen. We were very happy when we received so many of your stories. If you’d also like to tell use your story, we’re always interested to hear it. Please send it jay@foregen.org
  • Recently an intactivist’s attempt to persuade her family and friends that circumcision is wrong made national news. Check out our coverage of the event. Tell us in the comments section if you agree or not with her methods.  
  • A while back our friends at the Good Men Project covered some of the ways circumcision harms men.
  • A few weeks ago a Christian radio show held a debate between an intactivist nurse, and a doctor that advocated circumcision.
  • Finally, scientists have successfully regenerated cells in the retina of adult mice at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
