The Story that Inspired New PEOPLE MATTER Design!

CNN Video Inspires New Design for Sevenly

In the midst of disheartening news, we sometimes have to look for the hopeful and heartening stories.  Here is a video from CNN that inspired a conversation, which in turn resulted in a commissioning of new Sevenly art.  It communicates a timeless truth that inspired Sevenly’s founding. 

PEOPLE MATTER

It has never more timely for us to remember it then now.  As the rhetoric rises about who matters, we need to make the statement, together, that PEOPLE MATTER.  Simply put.  If we all embrace that principle and live it out, our communities will all be better.

And that is a worthy goal.
