Lately: Olympic disparities // Sevenly // Test your hunger IQ

It’s been fairly quite on the LLG front for the last few months… A new baby can do that! To get back into the swing of things, here’s the first of a new series of posts called “Lately…” – I come across so many awesome things and want to share them all, but never have the time… So “Lately…” is basically short snippets of cool things I’ve found or that have challenged me. So here’s what I’ve found “Lately…”

#1 // Sevenly – One Week. One Cause.

For every purchase we give $7 to this week’s charity. Great idea and obviously very sucessful raising almost a million dollars! Their mission is pretty good I reckon:

“To harness the power of art and community to build sustainable awareness and funding movements that support charities in their efforts to change the world.”

This week [14/08/12], your purchase helps rehabilitate a child soldier who was abducted & forced to fight in rebel armies – great cause to get behind!

This interesting video was particularly relevant with the London Olympics just coming to a close. Creator Gustavo Sousa said “The rings represent healthy competition and union, but we know the world isn’t perfect. Maybe understanding the differences is the first step to try to make things more equal.” (source: Daily Do Gooder)
