Sevenly: Help Rebuild Homes Destroyed by Hurricane Sandy
By creating weekly cause campaigns where people can purchase lifestyle products that benefit a partner charity, Sevenly has successfully unlocked a way to not only raise major funding but huge awareness too. This week on Sevenly, your purchase helps Forward Edge to rebuild a family’s home destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
The Problem: Superstorm Sandy affected 60 million people, many of whom lost their homes and are now displaced. While most Sandy victims had homeowners insurance, flooding damage was not covered. Although over 525,000 people have applied to FEMA for disaster assistance, many have be turned down due to a severe lack of funding, leaving them homeless.
The Solution: This week, Sevenly is partnering with Forward Edge International to provide financial assistance to repair and rebuild the homes of Sandy victims. For every $10,000 dollars we raise, they will fund the materials and labor to repair the home of another family who was affected by the storm! With your support, they will rebuild not only people’s homes, but their lives as well!
So please support Sevenly by buying clothing online or by spreading the word via facebook or twitter.
