Celebrate Life Story

Posted by Sevenly on Sep 6, 2016 2:35:38 PM

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:

The Story that Inspired New PEOPLE MATTER Design!

Posted by Sevenly on Jul 13, 2016 3:27:48 PM

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.
