When OC first launched, we had a very strong point of view about our place in the media. The niche brand we're creating, it's all very deliberate. But, frankly, the social mission is what drives us. And for our amazing editorial team and contributors, each one of us leads with a purpose.

To date, we've published hundreds of articles covering stories from seven countries and have reached over half a million readers all over the world. That's something we're very proud of. Our goal has always been to demonstrate that specialized journalism provides exceptional value and that inspirational stories do good in the world.

The Founders Project was created to let our readers contribute to the growth of OC, ensuring we'll be around for the next generation of ostomates. There are so many more stories we want to tell, and so much more we want to do for you. For as little as $1 you can support our work.
