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.

GIVE YOUR LIFE AWAY was commissioned by Sevenly and created by an amazingly talented artist.  About 6’ x 6’ in size, the framed original has hung in the Sevenly home office for years, inspiring all those who saw it to take on the bold challenge of giving our lives away, in service to God and in service to others.  It’s an example of the best of the Cause Art movement that Sevenly began.  People who saw it entered into conversations about what it means, and why it matters.

Take a moment to sit back and think about what your life was like as a fifteen year old. I remember spending countless hours at Starbucks chatting with friends, working on homework, and just trying to survive high school. Most of us have similar stories, but not Marissa Hacker.  At age fifteen, Marissa was inspired by her autistic twin brother, Matthew, to start her very own nonprofit. She called the organization, “Fantastic Friends.”
