February 14 - 21 is National Condom Week

Make a donation of $25 or more to Advocates for Youth this week, and we'll send you our new Great American Condom Campaign t-shirt!

The Great American Condom Campaign (GACC) is a youth-led grassroots movement to make the United States a sexually healthy nation.

Each year, Advocates provides more than one million Trojan brand condoms to students who serve as "SafeSites" on college and university campuses across the country. The students distribute condoms, educate their peers about sexual and reproductive health issues, and organize to improve policies that affect young people's health and well-being.

Last year alone, the GACC reached young people at 1,108 public and private universities, trade schools, military schools, religious institutions, and community colleges — many of which have little to no condom access — in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

 

With your contribution of $25 or more today, we can help educate and empower even more young people to make safe, healthy choices.

Did you know that every year in the U.S., there are 19 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs), with young people ages 15-24 accounting for almost half of them?

That's why programs like the GACC, which encourages young people to "use a condom every time" — while giving them the tools to do so — are so critical!

Donate by February 21st to receive your complimentary GACC t-shirt. You can indicate your t-shirt size (S, M, L, or XL) in the "Comments" section when making your gift.

Thank you for doing your part to support National Condom Week.

Best wishes,
