Dear Jessica A,

Thanks to you and hundreds of donors, hope is in the air at Our Bodies Ourselves! We are incredibly heartened and deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we received from both our longstanding contributors and from those who read about our plight in Saturday’s Boston Globe.

We plan to use the money to put the organization on firm financial footing so that its essential work can continue. Among other goals, OBOS plans to recruit an experienced executive director to oversee and implement a five-year strategic plan. OBOS will also be able to create new online health content, expand its global partnerships, continue serving as a watchdog to ensure that drugs and devices developed for women are safe and effective, and educate a new generation of health advocates around the world.

Although we are thrilled to have met our initial fundraising goal, OBOS must secure additional support so that it can achieve long-term stability. As one of our there-when-needed friends, we ask that you help spread the word about our ongoing fundraising efforts.

Thank you for your commitment to women’s health and to Our Bodies Ourselves!


Joan Rachlin
Board Chair
On behalf of the Board, founders, and staff of Our Bodies Ourselves
