To commemorate Veteran’s Day during this year, Sevenly is proud to pledge funding and support to Hope for the Warriors, and their Warrior’s Wish initiative.
People Matter. Two very simple words in front of a very audacious mission: To encourage a generation toward generosity. That was our founding ideal. And Sevenly has done that, donating millions of dollars to causes we cared about, earning accolades and spreading the word about the incredible work that amazing non-profits do day after day.
But in a past chapter of our story, we failed to uphold our promises. As we shared candidly with you in our blog post on May 20 of this year, troubles began with unplanned turbulence in our social marketing model that resulted in us spending too much on behalf of our charity campaigns, and culminated in an almost fatal management team debacle when an effort to enhance our supply chain and customer fulfillment process broke both systems. During that chapter of Sevenly’s story, which formally ended in June, thousands of customers received late orders (some are still waiting), and some of our non-profit partners received partial or delayed pledge payments. We communicated our deep regret about this failure publicly – by email, through blog posts, and across our social media platforms.
Sevenly gets to work with an eclectic group of very cool people. Chef Billy Parisi is one of them.
At 31 years of age, Billy Parisi has the education and experience of a seasoned chef. By the time he enrolled at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2002, Parisi had already graduated from Arizona’s Scottsdale Culinary Institute and logged several years as line cook, sous chef, and executive in some of the Midwest’s finest restaurants.
Feeding children nutritious food opens doors to provide them and their families with education, clean water, job and agricultural training, a sense of hope and much more. Currently, Convoy of Hope feeds more than 145,000 children in the Philippines, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Guatemala, South Africa and Tanzania. Sevenly is grateful to direct our pledge from this year’s THANKS|giving Collection toward their epic work in the world. #becausepeoplematter
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
SHE'S ALREADY GOING PLACES. WITH A BIKE, YOU'RE HELPING HER GO FURTHER.
To mark this year's International Day of the Girl, Sevenly is celebrating the work of Girl Up and their SchoolCycle initiative, which is providing bikes to adolescent girls in Guatemala. Here's why we think it's so important that we created a design to help you tell the story….
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. So we are proud, and grateful, to curate a collection of some epic advocacy art this week, anchored by the HOPE > Cancer design.
A story about a baby found in a trash bag, and the #Sevenly family who decided to love him as their own. They did it to offer the child a gift, and were surprised to get a much greater gift in return. #familyismorethanblood #familymatters #becausepeoplematter

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:
