Have you heard of Sevenly? It’s a fashion site with a great concept — every week they offer a new tshirt design, with a significant portion of the selling price of the shirts going towards a worthy charity. So far over $1 million has been donated to various causes through sales on the site, which is pretty impressive considering it was launched just over a year ago, in June 2011; 100 percent of the money raised goes to funding the cause, not to administrative costs.
This week’s Sevenly beneficiary is one that I think will be of interest to Pawesome readers, and it’s definitely deserving of some help. Seven dollars from the sale of these shirts will go to non-profit 4 Paws for Ability, which provides individually trained service dogs to disabled kids in need, around the world — and this week, that $7 is doubled up to $20,000 raised. As an awesome bonus, many of the dogs trained by 4 Paws to work with children with conditions like autism, Down syndrome, or epilepsy are rescue animals.
Service animals can be an awesome help for disabled children and their families — this New York Times article illustrates what a dog meant for one family and highlights the work done by 4 Paws. And the Sevenly shirts are, as always, hip and nicely designed. They’re a great way to up your fashion game and do some good all in one shot. Here’s hoping the $21,000 goal is not just met but exceeded.
