I am always interested in seeing new nonprofits in the infertility space, because just when I think there couldn’t possibly be room for one more – there’s one more.
Considering the limited efficacy of the larger groups, I’m not convinced that another non-profit is a bad idea. Here is the announcement that came across my desk: “2BFertile is a non-profit dedicated to supporting individuals and couples facing fertility challenges.
This is a brand new organization with a small but energetic board. We are kicking things off by organizing a 5K for Fertility on April 24th at Lake Zorinsky.
April 24th marks the start of National Infertility Awareness Week.” “We are very excited to be a part of creating awareness about the 38,000 people struggling with fertility issues in Nebraska. Eventually, we hope to be able to continue to increase awareness as well as increase resources and access to resources for those facing fertility challenges.
Currently, we are in need of support in any way you can provide it. We are looking for board members, contributions and most importantly help in spreading the word! As an aside, 38,000 thousand people with infertility in Nebraska isn’t a good number-it seems way too high, and RESOLVE, a national fertility organization created National Infertility Awareness Week, and I’m pretty sure they’re gonna want their week back.
