Every day I try to do something to make a difference is someone's life. Whether it be a simple hello, a smile, or volunteering to make a impact. Recently I found this awesome website called Sevenly, which donates seven dollars for every item they sell. Each week a new charity is selected and a special line of clothing is offered.
Sevenly has raised $3,603,948 & helped 1,063,589 people
Why does this matter? Because not only does the money help people from across the world, charities in the United States also benefit. My four year old cousin has autism, which is often a challenge for my parents and family. I love when April 2nd comes around and I can proudly wear my "Shine a Light on Autism" shirt that was purchased from Sevenly. Not only can I support my cousin, but the money was donated to autism research. This morning, Carson was featured on the front page of the Kansas City Star because of his improvement in learning.

At the age of four Carson spoke his first words. Thanks to various programs, he is also able to use an iPad to communicate. The newspaper article does an excellent job of explaining his process of learning. Thanks to certain charities and hard working people, my cousin is beginning communicate. Because someone made an effort to make a difference, they changed not only one four-year old's lives but the lives of his family and friends. I challenge you to do something today that will make a difference in someone's life.
