WTF Fun Fact 13221 – Yung Gravy Donates Bras

“Yung Gravy donates bras” is probably not a sentence that makes much sense to most of us. But it’s actually a good deed done by a 26-year-old Minneapolis rapper.

Yung Gravy donates bras to a good cause

Women apparently throw A LOT of bras at rapper Yung Gravy during his concerts. In fact, he ended up with quite the collection.

The rapper, whose real name is Matthew Hauri, told his 7+ million TikTok fans recently that he had over 1,900 bras. He also planned to donate them all to women’s shelters.

And to top it off, he promised to match the value of the bras and donate the money to a breast cancer foundation. Of course, he needed to ask his fans how much a decent bra goes for these days. (He had to be pretty startled when he found the cost of 1,900 “decent bras.”)

Word gets around

When you have over 7 million social media followers, words of your good deeds get around.

According to Rare (cited below), “The rapper’s video posted on November 28 had the simple caption ‘save the nip’ below it. Footage of Yung Gravy getting practically smothered in fan bras accompanied a vow to donate the bras. He also promised to match the final value of the bras to a breast cancer foundation…In less than a month, his video has received over 16 million views and nearly 3 million likes.”

Eventually, the I Support the Girls Foundation (ISTG) heard that Yung Gravy donates bras and reached out. “ISTG’s mission is to work with a wide network of affiliates to collect and distribute essential feminine items, including bras and hygiene products, to impoverished women in need of them,” according to Rare.

Yung Gravy donated the bras to ISTG and helped sort through them. Some of them still had tags on them, meaning that they were purchased just to throw at the rapper!  WTF fun facts

WTF Fun Fact 13218 – The Wall of Humanity

It likely started in Iran with the Wall of Kindness. One morning people woke up to a wall with graffiti telling them to leave what they didn’t need for those in need. More recently, Bangladesh’s Wall of Humanity has made the news due to its popularity in the winter months.

The rise of the Wall of Humanity

The “Wall of Kindness” is a charity initiative started in Iran in 2015. Since then, it has spread to other countries.

The idea behind the wall is to provide a place where people can leave clothing, food, and other essentials. Then, those in need can come and take what suits them best at the time.

People call it the Wall of Humanity in some countries. These walls are typically made up of hooks or shelves and signs. The goal is to allow people to easily hang up and take items without creating an eyesore.

The goal of the initiative is to encourage people to be more charitable. It also helps address poverty and homelessness in their communities.

Since 2015, these walls have become a symbol of hope and generosity. They’re also a reminder that small acts of kindness can make a big difference in people’s lives.

Building walls to join people together

According to the Wall of Humanity website:

“The concept of the ‘Wall of Humanity’ is to make a simple public wall transform into a social welfare center. It was initiated in 2015 by Pakistani Boy, Rohayl Varind with the sole purpose to win the war against poverty & hunger. Through this wall, people get free food, free ration, free medical checkup, free medicines, free clothes, free shoes, etc. It is an endeavor par excellence towards alleviating our species and taking humanity one step further to being called ‘Best of Creations’. Wall of Humanity has served more than 250,000 people all over the World specifically in India and Pakistan within the last 4 years.”
