February 20th is The UN’s World Day of Social Justice.  In light of this, we thought it would be fitting to give you the opportunity take action at this upcoming GYC Studies:  Social Justice conference.  On behalf of GYC, Team Revolution decided to provide an easy way for everyone to get involved.  Read through the following wishlists below and see how you can contribute.  Look around your house (or your parents’ house).  Ask your friends.  The items can be gently used or new, unless specified.  We are holding our collection drive on Saturday evening onsite at Camp Au Sable.  Thank you in advance for giving to these amazing causes. You are making a difference for Jesus’ sake!


This nonprofit agency in Grayling, MI, located just miles from our conference, exists to provide safety and services to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and the homeless population while promoting empowerment through education and advocacy.  We are partnering with the Grayling Seventh-day Adventist Church on this project.  You can be a part of supporting this cause.  They are in need of the following items:


– purses/handbags

– blankets & bed linens

– regular-sized shampoo/soap (new)

– underwear & socks (new)

– bandaids & first aid supplies (new)


This is a home for AIDS orphans recently opened by REACH International.  Last year, our GYC Intermission team worked at this site that sits on the shores of Lake Victoria in Bunere, Tanzania.  REACH International plans to open a school for the orphans; they continue to need help and support in meeting the needs of these precious children.  Here’s how you can help:


– any school supplies

– children’s multivitamins

– first aid supplies

– children’s clothing/shoes


This “angel” home that is nearing completion by Global Village Ministries in Maasailand, Kenya, will house 43 girls, ages 5-14, who are at high risk for female genital mutilation, early childhood marriage, and/or are orphaned.  We will be collecting these gently used or new items for this organization that’s impacting lives for eternity:


– stuffed animals

– Bibles

– dictionaries

– laptop computers

– calculators

– batteries (new)

– twin bedding & blankets


GYC Intermission will be partnering with the Pennsylvania Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in ministering to the social, spiritual, and physical needs of the community.  One project will place homeless people in permanent homes.  We will be collecting basic supplies to help these individuals get settled:


– adult clothing

– towels & washcloths

– cleaning supplies (new)

– toiletries

– bedding & linens


For women around the world, having a bra not only provides professional & social decency, it can prevent various different health problems.  A bra can help alleviate back strain in larger women.  In humid climates rashes, fungal infections and abscesses occur between the breast and the chest wall.  Bras help by allowing air circulation. Nursing mothers everywhere leak, and bras allow the dignity of a dry shirt, and the comfort of support.  A thrush rash on a mother’s skin may spread to her baby’s mouth, and then back into the breast itself.  A mastectomy bra offers privacy about the problem.  Team Revolution will be collecting gently-used bras for women in Kenya.

Wishlist: Bras of all colors, shapes, & sizes!
