The Sevenly team is thrilled to kick off our first ever Highlight Week by partnering with an exceptionally unique charity. With the help of some (very cute) furry friends, this charity is working to bring independence and restoration to those who need it most. Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers is an organization that raises and trains capuchin monkeys to provide daily assistance to people living with spinal cord injuries or other mobility impairments.
For me, knowing what I wanted to do when I grew up was always simple -- I wanted to change the world. That was my passion, and I was going to do whatever it took to turn that passion and dream into a reality. Working at Sevenly allows me to do just that. It allows me to help others who can’t help themselves, to leave my mark on this world, even if only in a small way, and to wake up everyday knowing that I have the chance to make a difference in someone else’s life. Simply put, working at Sevenly allows me to give.
Imagine marching through the streets of New York, accompanied by 15,000 of your closest friends, all united around one cause: winning basic rights for yourself and your loved ones. You’ve tried everything you can to get the people in power to listen to you and address your very reasonable concerns, but to no avail.
Sometimes the burden of world change can feel pretty heavy. Between political unrest rocking the world, widespread hunger, and the proliferation of atrocities such as human trafficking, sizing up the world can make you feel pretty powerless. You think about all the suffering and injustice in the world, and pretty soon you’re falling down a rabbit hole of hopelessness. How could one person possibly hope to change these gargantuan issues that are causing such widespread suffering?
Sevenly was founded on the belief that People Matter. More than profit, more than products, more than desires. The needs and rights of human beings always need to come first.
The Young and Brave Foundation is a nonprofit that supports young people fighting cancer by sharing their stories and raising funding and awareness about the brave journeys of people fighting this disease. Sevenly has been honored to partner with this awesome organization, and we can't wait to stand by them as they continue to grow!
This week, Sevenly is partnering with The Young Americans, a charity working to promote understanding and goodwill among people throughout the world by using music and dance education as a means of creating lasting connections. Sevenly HQ is filled with creative people, and we couldn’t be more excited to support a charity that gives children transformative experiences while promoting the arts.
