Building A Family Through Surrogacy

An Educational Discussion With A Surrogate, Egg Donor, Parents and Professionals

This educational event is a great time for intended parents thinking about starting a family through surrogacy to learn how to plan their journey, and hear honest, first-hand insights from a surrogate, egg donor and parents about their own real-life experiences.

Are you curious about the women who become surrogates and egg donors?  Want to hear about their motivations, their relationship with their intended parents, and their perspectives on their roles helping create families?
Do you want to have a chance to talk to parents who have started the journey to parenthood though surrogacy and successfully come out the other side?

Have you got questions for the professionals who are the experts in family building through surrogacy and interested in some free advice?
This casual and interactive educational event features a discussion and Q&A session and will be moderated by representatives of NWSC and Dr. Amanda Hurliman of ORM Fertility.  This event is supported by Our Family Coalition.

Calling all Our Family Coalition supporters!

We're glad you're part of our community, and we love doing what we do on behalf of your family and our community.

Today we're asking for a little help back, something fun, which includes a major perk if you throw yourself into it.

Would you be an ambassador on behalf of OFC for this year's Give OUT Day, Tuesday, April 18, 2019?

Give OUT Day is the one and only national day of giving for the LGBTQ community, driven by thousands of individuals passionately promoting things they care about via their networks online. We'd love to have you on board as an ambassador!

What would you do? Three simple things:

  • Establish an Individual GiveOUT Day Donor page, so you can personalize your pitch & we can track your donors (we'll help; it's easy).

  • Be willing to spread the word to your friends and social media/ Facebook followers over the weeks before Give OUT Day.

  • Plug Give OUT Day on Tuesday, April 18th, with as much enthusiasm as you have time that day, with Tweets, Facebook posts, email blasts to friends, etc. We'll walk you through it all, if you're in. It's simple, it's fun, and it's huge way to give back to OFC.

Ready for the major perk?

The OFC ambassador who nets the most unique donors – not the most donation money total, just the most people donating – will be thanked with two free tickets to this year's Night Out Gala, Friday April 26! Sweet, right?

Let us know what you think?
