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.

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.
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.
