Have you heard of the company Sevenly? They are a company that partners with charities to raise money and awareness for that charity. Each week they have a different cause and they sell shirts, sweatshirts etc and $7 from your purchase goes to help the charity. In the picture above I am wearing my first shirt I bought from Sevenly which was for Forward Edge International. Among other things, Forward Edge International helps keeps girls from being sold into prostitution in Nicaragua. Having young girls myself, I couldn't help but do something.
I wish I could buy a shirt every week. The charities they partner with are amazing. But I have been waiting for my second purchase to be a charity relating to down syndrome. When I saw the familiar almond shaped eyes in Sevenly's new Facebook post today I jumped.
Reece's Rainbow partners with families who are willing to adopt an international child with special needs and helps with fundraising so that those families have less of a financial burden. It makes me so happy to know that they are getting lots of attention this week and are spreading the word about their work.
Please consider buying a shirt this week or if you would rather you can go straight to the Reece's Rainbow site and donate there. I myself will have a shirt just like the above picture in a few days.
