from each purchase gives $7

Sevenly is also a spin off of the word ‘
’ since heaven is seen as ‘a world without need’.

a staff of twelve
but Partridge, its co-founder, would like to grow the team to about 30 people and would like it to ‘stay
small and efficient

- traditional branding, viral model
Affinity model: partnerships and selling to set group ex. To Write Love On Her Arms

– where does said money go?
$7 to charity and rest of the funds go to Sevenly
30% of its revenue is donated
multiple revenue streams and revenue sharing model
"Our overall goal is to
activate intentional generosity and love for others
, there are millions of people who have never supported a charity before, so asking for a monetary donation might be weird.. So we thought, let’s
encourage people to donate their social influence
first. Next, let’s allow people to
purchase a product that gives money to a cause they support
, and last, let’s encourage these
donors to connect deeper with these charities
." (Sevenly 2013)
