More ideas for spreading a positive intact message!
In addition to carding, there are many ways you can spread the message that "Boys are born perfect too!" as you go about your day.
Check out our fun ideas, and contact us here if you have one you would like to add.
Leave a Pen
Leave one of our pens at the doctor's office, dentist's office, any store, bank, or gas station. How about the post office? You can even leave one with the check at a restaurant. Be sure to keep a few on hand to give someone who asks about the pen and its message.
Your Whole Baby Pens
Children's museums, malls, and other places where young families go have opportunities for creative expression. While kids spell out their names or "Hi, Mom!" you can leave the Your Whole Baby name or website (yourwholebaby.org). Pictured here, kids (and moms!) were allowed to use stickers to cover the room with pictures, designs, or words.
If there is a chalk festival, write "Boys are Born Perfect!" If there are alphabet letters, rearrange them to spell out YourWholeBaby.org. One activist found a pillow in a store that had sequins intended to be flipped over to make patterns. She spelled out "Your Whole Baby" hoping to educate whoever saw it next!
Tap on Technology
In any "big box" store, there will be tablets, phones, and/or laptops displayed. If the device is connected to the Internet, you can pull up an intact-info website and even go to a graphic that you love. The next person who checks out the device will see your message. If you are at the mall, you have many options of cell phone stores and kiosks, plus the Apple or Microsoft stores, where you can tap, tap, tap to spread awareness.
If you want to use one of our graphics, just go to YourWholeBaby.org, click "Be the Change," and select "Graphics for Social Media." We have many categories with hundreds of graphics. This one is found under "Born Perfect" near the top.
Sell your Stuff
If you are putting maternity or pregnancy items into a consignment sale, garage sale, or giveaway, send some intact info with them! You could put cards into the pockets, or use a stamp on the back of your tags. If you are giving away a pregnancy or baby care book, be sure to mark the circumcision section with some correct information.
Include the "Boys are Born Perfect" message in your holiday decorating! You can paint or carve pumpkins, make ornaments, or stuff stickers into eggs.
This is a big commitment, so think long and hard before doing it! An intactivist tattoo is an amazing way to show your support for genital integrity and to start many conversations. Ask in our Facebook group if you would like more ideas.
Do It Yourself
You can use your own printer, label maker, vinyl cutter, or sharpie to put a message on your own T-shirt, pen, stroller, wagon, handbag, helmet, bicycle, tank top, or phone case. Go for something bold like "End Routine Infant Circumcision" or try something subtle like "Peace Begins at Birth." Start a conversation and change the world!
