Sevenly: Show HOPE to Asian Orphans

Sevenly is a charitable organisation that sells t-shirts and jumpers to raise money and awareness of causes. Their slogan is: ‘One Week. One Cause.’ This week, your purchase from Sevenly helps an orphan in Asia become adopted by a loving family.

This week's charity:
Show Hope enables individuals and communities to change the world for orphans by not only addressing a child’s need for food, shelter, care, and spiritual nourishment, but by also addressing the root issue for an orphan: the lack of a family.

Physical pain is not what endangers most orphans. It is the emotional pain caused by loneliness, rejection, years of being neglected and unloved, and made to feel like a number.

Story behind the art
This week's art draws it's inspiration from the notion that we are all created with purpose. Every one of us was put on this earth to do more for others than for ourselves. In this way, we all have a "Greater Calling".

So this week, let's fill the deepest void in an orphan's life… your support will help place these precious children in the arms of a family FOREVER.

Ronell x

“Was it the act of giving birth that made you a mother? Did you lose that label when you relinquished your child? If people were measured by their deeds, on the one hand, I had a woman who had chosen to give me up; on the other, I had a woman who'd sat up with me at night when I was sick as a child, who'd cried with me over boyfriends, who'd clapped fiercely at my law school graduation. Which acts made you more of a mother? Both, I realized. Being a parent wasn't just about bearing a child. It was about bearing witness to its life.” {Jodi Picoult}
