Genital Autonomy Pumpkin Contest!


feel free to grab and use if you need a good #i2 profile picture this season


It's a Pumpkin Carving Contest!! 

The goal? To incorporate the Genital Autonomy Symbol into this season's pumpkins to raise awareness on the important issue of genital integrity for all babies and children.

For some ideas, you may want to check out last year's GA pumpkins here
The first pumpkins that we know of carved with NOCIRC's genital autonomy child symbol
were by Danelle Frisbie and Guggie Daly.
Grab Danelle's template for carving the NOCIRC symbol here if you like. 
Or get really creative and see what you and the kids come up with!

We will be posting all photos of GA Pumpkins submitted to us on this page and public voting will take place at DrMomma.org through Nov 1st. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive a fabulous stash of intact gear and items to put to use, empower parents, and save more babies in their area in the upcoming months ahead!

To submit your GA Pumpkin, send photo(s) to DrMomma.org@gmail.com or upload to the peaceful parenting or Saving Our Sons Facebook page walls. If your photo includes a picture of your child, we are happy to add a watermark per your request. Pumpkins will be displayed anonymously until voting is complete.

**WE HAVE WINNERS!**




If you are one of our 1st, 2nd or 3rd place winners, drop a note to SavingSons@gmail.com with your address and your entry number. We'll get your intact stash sent!


If you're one of the other contestants who submitted a pumpkin this year, drop us a note with your entry number and your favorite choice of info card (or an assortment of your favorites) from the SOS collection. You'll receive one set to distribute in your area: http://www.savingsons.org/p/info-cards-etc.html For those who are requesting info cards already, we will include an additional set.

  2. Love that little guys shirt. Need to find one for diaper free babies instead of cloth diapered. Diaper free is the way to go. I Love flushing a toilet instead of wiping a poopy butt.
