Thank you for signing the #nopresentspledge! It is the selflessness of people like you who enable us to treat women who are suffering from obstetric fistula. We are truly grateful.

We hope the resources below will help you spread the word. (Have a great idea for a resource to add? Let us know by e-mailing!)

Dear [Name],

As you know, my [birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.] is just around the corner. But this year, I’m doing something a little bit different. I’ve been thinking a lot about how fortunate I am to have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, more posessions than I know what to do with, and generous and supportive friends and relatives like you. I’ve been thinking about the people in this world who don’t have any of those things. I realized that by giving up presents, maybe I could do a little something to help make their lives better.

That’s why I took the #nopresentspledge, a pledge to forego gifts for my [birthday, Christmas, Hannukah, etc.] and ask instead for donations in my name that will provide the gift of health to a woman who is suffering needlessly with obstetric fistula, a childbirth injury that leaves women incontinent and too often ostracized from their family and community. Fistula Foundation is a top-rated charity that is working to provide free, life-changing surgeries to women with fistula. (You can learn more about what they do by watching this two minute video.)

Please help me keep my pledge and make a tax-deductible donation in my name to Fistula Foundation at this link.

Thank you in advance for helping me celebrate in this very special way.
