Look Stylish WHILE Supporting a Great Cause!

Sevenly is an Organization that sells merchandise that helps benefit a select charity.  $7 to be exact from every t-shirt/hoodie purchase goes toward the charity that is chosen each week.  This week, Autism Speaks was the charity chosen.  I came across this video that SCCASTANEDA posted on YouTube about this specific Organization and I was so intrigued to see what it was all about.  Here is the link to her video: 

In watching this video she explains a little about what Autism is etc. However, fear not, Sevenly updates the Organization that they are donating to each week.  They have a huge list of Charities that you can check out, whom they have already partnered with to donate thousands of dollars. 

Above is an illustration of how this whole process works: 

1. They partner with a different charity each week (that's 52 charities helped a year!)
2. For every T-Shirt purchased they give $7 to that week's charity. 
3. At the end of the week long campaign, they send the charity a check.  (ex: 100 t-shirts sold = $700 check given to the charity)

Let me also clarify that I am in no way affiliated with this organization, but really love what they have going on.  I also want to clarify how awesome their merchandise is! The T's and hoodies are actually really fashion forward.  They have sleek cool designs and for the women they have a nice V-neck and are fitted for a woman's body.  No more of those t-shirts that fit so awkward we only wear them to sleep haha You will for sure feel confident wearing this out, AND it has the Charity written somewhere on it or a saying related to the charity, so you are raising awareness! :)

Here are some of the previous T-shirts they have sold for different charities so that you can get a better understanding of what exactly I mean: 

I love to blog about charities sometimes, especially when I come across a unique one like this.  I hope you all take the opportunity to check out their site, and if this weeks charity doesn't appeal to you (although I don't see why it wouldn't!) then remember they change every 7 days so you should find one close to your heart soon enough.  If you are very dedicated to a specific charity that is not listed in their Charity List Section, then be sure to recommend it to them, I am sure if enough people do, they would be more than happy to work with that specific charity! 

To Fashion AND Helping Others,
