Something significant will happen today at 10am pacific time in Fullerton, California. It happens each Monday morning at the same time. And, it's a big deal. So big, in fact, that tens of thousands of people wait for it every week.
So, what's everyone waiting for, you wonder? Well...
Sevenly is releasing a brand new, limited edition t-shirt!
I can almost hear the collective- Oh, great, a new t-shirt? How is that a big deal?
Since Sevenly was founded in June of 2011, by Dale Partridge, 26, and Aaron Chavez, 19, these t-shirts have raised over $227,000 for 34 different charities.
Not only have they raised a significant amount of money, they have also created awareness and prompted a faithful following for the charities featured on the t-shirts. That's a big, life changing deal!
Here are a few fun facts about Sevenly.
Sevenly's business method is built around the number seven.
*Their company name, for starters.
*For each shirt purchased, $7 is donated to charity.
*The money benefits causes in 7 main categories- slavery, clean water, hunger, poverty, medical, disaster relief and miscellaneous aid.
*Each cool, creative, limited edition t-shirt is only available for 7 days.
Every week the new charity has a video, links to their website and interesting information about the work they do.
The Sevenly site is fun to visit. Lots of creativity displayed that keeps things interesting.
