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 August thus far.
What’s Happened Since Last Time?
- We’ve made arrangements to attend Dallas Pride on the 16th of September. Like NYC and Toronto, this is another opportunity to meet people and gain more supporters.
- We have an upcoming article on the history of circumcision in South Korea. This is from the same writer of ‘Infant Body Piercing and Circumcision’. We interviewed several people for this article and uploaded one of these interviews already.
- Recently we mentioned our plan to produce a podcast. Production is currently underway, and our first episode is scheduled for release in early September - Stay tuned!
- We have just released a new page on our site which features all of our supporters’ stories. You can also check out our recent blog post which featured Vinny’s story. If you haven’t told us your story yet, please send it to email@example.com
- Donations so far for the month of August are $5,583. Last month we achieved a monthly total of $10,021 and it would be great to exceed that record this month, too! Our current all-time total is $212,552 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- The AMA Journal of Ethics published an article which argues that in circumcision the loss of the foreskin itself should be considered harm.

- Recently Metro wrote an article arguing that ‘America must stop circumcising baby boys and start viewing it as mutilation’.
- Several girls in Kenya created a mobile app which they hope will help end female genital mutilation.
- The Guardian has reported on how a Nano chip could heal injuries, or regrow organs with one touch.
- Medical equipment maker Nipro has announced plans to commercialize a stem cell-based treatment for spinal cord injuries, developed with Sapporo Medical University.
