Purchasing Power

Good Morning my sweet lovelies! Lately, our household is very aware of any abundance we may have compared to the rest of the world. I feel guilty throwing food away that my boys don't eat. It makes me cringe. Or having good produce go bad because we don't eat it fast enough. Or purchasing clothing that only lasts for a wear or two. The list goes on and on. But, the good news is, there is a solution. To use our purchasing power to make a difference. My goal is for each purchase I make, to think, "who is this benefiting?" I wanted to share with you a one of my favorite companies today (I will share other ones later).

The first one up is Sevenly {www.sevenly.org} Every week Sevenly (and its customers) teams up with a charity, helping raise funds and awareness for 7 full days. The campaign starts on Mondays at 10am PST with the release of limited edition products. Each purchase made gives $7 to the charity partner of the week. Whether you purchase a campaign specific shirt or something from our curated vendor selection, $7 goes directly to making a difference with the charity. (taken from their website)

I've purchased now probably six different shirts, each for a different cause. And just this week, purchased one with my favorite quote about "Being the change". The worst problem you will have, is that you will want to buy it all! Each cause is deserving! In the back of each shirt, there is a scripture and the cause you helped. That just makes my heart happy!

Here is the video for this weeks cause, 4 Paws 4 Ability, placing quality service dogs with children with disabilities and veterans who have lost use of limbs or hearing; help with animal rescue, and educate the public regarding use of service dogs in public places.
Happy day to you. Pop over to Sevenly, and if you need something they offer, feel great about using your money to better this precious world.
