“A lot of information went home with expectant couples, and we gave out a surprising amount of the “what does this card have to do with your penis” cards with restoration info on them.
All the cards on the table have tonnes of info and recourses on the backs, and can be found here:http://www.savingsons.org/p/info-cards.html ”

“Ready for the rush. It was a busy weekend, we had many crowds around our booth, mostly very positive. So many people stopped to thank us for being there; many different people approached us with the attitude that it was the fathers choice to make, but after seeing what happens to the babies, and getting correct information on proper intact care as well as normal development of the intact penis, they left saying “I will never allow that to happen to my son.” There were a couple negative experiences, a few people displayed cognitive dissonance and denial, and one mom and daughter had sought us out to get information on where to get the daughters son circumcised. They refused to listen to any facts or even take any information. Overall it was a very positive and inspiring weekend.”
