Advocacy Apparel Makes Its Debut – En Espanol!
It has been said that “children are great imitators. So give them something great to imitate." According to Boys and Girls Clubs of America, 11.3 million kids are left unsupervised, one in five kids won’t graduate on time, and three out of ten kids are obese or overweight.
Fortunately, there is someone there to provide a safe and nurturing environment when a child needs it most. Every year, four million young people are involved in Boys and Girls Clubs across America. Among those four million, the Latino and Hispanic community now comprise more than 16 percent of the U.S. population, making them the nation’s largest minority group.
Boys and Girls Clubs of America created the Latino Outreach Initiative to implement and connect kids with mentors in their communities. Latino Outreach Initiative provides more diversity and promotes inclusivity for all cultures. Providing a safe environment, supportive relationships, engaging activities, and meaningful opportunities offers kids the tools they need to shape their own future and become their best selves.
Sevenly understands the need to include everyone in its' creed, People Matter. This is part of what creates a sense of community. That’s why we’re introducing, con amor, the first ever Advocacy Apparel Collection for the Hispanic and Latino market. We’ve called it, La Colecciòn en “Español Encantado”.
The Español Encantado Collection includes some Sevenly classics as well as some brand new designs, created by Sevenly artisan Gabriella Sampedro. Each sale from the Espanol Encantando Collection this week will support Boys and Girls Clubs of America and their mission to enable young people in the United States to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
