DAY 23 (52 Days)

GTD PRODUCT LINE! One of the most frequently asked questions on our trips is, "Do you guys sell GTD T-shirts or hats?" Embarrassingly, the answer is usually, "We hope to have some new shirts soon." We've had nearly 10,000 participants embark on GTD adventures. Many of them want some kind of memento to remember their trip and display their love & support for this ministry. Can you imagine how many more people would have heard about this ministry by now if we had been offering GTD shirts for the past 19 years?!?! In the early years we didn't have the extra money to pay for these kind of items. Then, when we were able to purchase them, we didn't have the time to follow through with the process. The reality is we rarely have GTD shirts, hats, coffee mugs, water bottles, or an assortment of other products that participants would love to buy. That's unfortunate. And it's about to change. We are addressing our need for a quality GTD Product Line during our 52 Days campaign. As we prepare for the next 20 years of ministry our goal is to have a small team of people who are gifted in graphic design create new GTD shirts, hats, mugs, water bottles, and other frequently requested items so that our participants can purchase a souvenir from their trip and display their GTD keepsakes. We are looking forward to offering some cool new GTD gear soon. It's an exciting time to be a part of GTD!
