As a professional kayaker, CNN Hero Brad Ludden was transformed by his "first descents." Today, he gives that experience to young adults with cancer through his epic non-profit called by the same name. First Descent, along with many other non-profits, big and small, highlight the importance of The Great Outdoors in the health and wealth of all of us. What a gift! Check out this amazing video from the producers of CNN Heroes. #adventurematters #becausepeoplematter
You may already know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Team Sevenly includes many people who have cheered on loved ones who have fought cancer, and breast cancer in particular.

September is Service Dog Month. We’re marking that by doing a flash back to some of Sevenly’s campaigns from the past that remind us why the world needs dogs. : ) Long called Man’s Best Friends, dogs provide critical care for people as well. Check out this Sevenly video from 2013 to see what we mean. So wear your love, and support www.4pawsforability.org #dogsmatter #becausepeoplematter
Sometimes we forget about the challenge of hopelessness faced by people we know, and some we’ll never meet. Suicide rates are too high, and they’re getting higher, especially in certain communities – including men and women in public service jobs, like the military, and fire and police departments. We can do more, and we need to do more, to help remind people that every life matters. Our CELEBRATE LIFE! Collection is an appropriate way to respond to World Suicide Awareness Day, on September 10th. Here’s one story that inspired us to create the CELEBRATE LIFE! Collection:

Sevenly has had the privilege over five years of working with many of the world’s greatest non-profit partners, including some that many of our followers have never heard of before. Our team has taken great delight in helping to save lives and improve lives – and often that has led us to discover small charities doing epic and important work.
Social movements have long been agitated in part by art. Sevenly was created to help contribute to the role of a new form of artistic expression, what we called “cause art,” to help create conversation and raise funding and awareness for the world’s greatest causes.
