On a bright note, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) projects can still be
accomplished in spite of the Covid-19 virus. Many projects can be done at home,
such as making T-shirt bags to reduce consumption of plastics, or you could donate
gently used books to those that don’t have the ability to afford or obtain them. Also,
projects can be completed in very small groups. You can also sign up for virtual
events, such as the Climate Strike called Earth Challenge.
You can also help your GYSDAY flyercommunity respond to the Covid-19 outbreak. You can
advocate for assistance to those in need, since hygiene, and health amenities are
needed now more than ever. You could also provide childcare services for those
that need to work, donate blood, and help promote sanitary habits to help prevent
the spread. As we face this challenge we need to fully embrace our organization’s
focus to help families and communities.
And always remember to face the future with warm courage and high hope.
