Sevenly



I came across this really neat organization called Sevenly through the ever - insightful Pinterest...

Each week they come up with new t-shirt, jumper, tote bag designs that support a certain charity. $7.00 from every purchase goes toward the charity. The designs on their apparel are always very funky and unique, related to the cause of the charity. 

This week their chosen charity is called  Hope Global. Hope Global provides food, shelter, accommodation and care for a child orphaned by AIDS. It began in Rwanda where there are over 600 000 orphaned children and has since spread to other countries. 


"HOPE: Global is a faith-based, non-profit organization that operates to restore hope and justice to countries devastated by war, genocide and poverty. Our aim is to unite individuals, churches, governments, NGOs, education, trade, healthcare and business professionals to offer practical solutions that strengthen and help develop existing indigenous organisations."

 

What I love about Hope Global is the fact that it was actually founded by some well-known Australian Pastors. Darlene Zschech, the anointed worship leader who used to be with Hillsong and her husband who now pastor their own Church. It's great to see Aussies out there making a difference in the nations. 

 

So why not check out Sevenly and their awesome apparel supporting Hope Global this week and be sure to keep checking out Sevenly each new week in their work of supporting global charities.

  3. Seems like a great company / cause! I also found another fashion company doing something similar call Cogo ( www.GoCogo.com ). But they are much smaller (started by a some kid in college) and focus on local community projects. But I figured I'd share. I have a sevenly shirt and it's great but I also just ordered one from Cogo.

  4. Hey, thanks for stopping by, and thanks for sharing about Cogo. I love the quote on their "about" page:“many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.” So-great hearing about other people's small yet significant efforts to bring about change in our world.
