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.
None other than Sevenly's Charity and Influencer Outreach Associate, Lindsay Robb, recently sat down with LOLO Magazine to talk inspiration, world change, and social good. They covered what makes Sevenly...Sevenly:
To Our Incredible World-Changing Supporters,
First off: We want to apologize again, sincerely, for these ridiculous shipping delays. We dislike them just as much as you do, and we can’t wait for them to be finished. That said, we’re sorry for the delays, communication gaps, shoddy service, and for being a big bummer. You deserve better. We owe you better. We will give you better.
A few weeks ago, Sevenly launched a design contest to tap into the passion and talent of our world-changing community. We were amazed at the response we got, because we saw design submissions from all over the country that blew us away! The Sevenly team examined the feedback from our supporters on social media, took a vote at our HQ, and picked a winner! We are so excited to be featuring Rachel Hendrick, an incredible graphic designer and member of the Sevenly community. We asked her some questions to get to know her a bit better, and we hope you love her just as much as we do!
It's time for a heart-to-heart. Actually... it's a bit overdue.
