Facebook connects people to the businesses and organizations that matter to them and helps people have an impact in the world.

Sevenly began as a new way of charitable giving that gathers people around weekly sales of fun clothing inspired by serious causes. Using Facebook Ads, Sevenly reaches thousands of people who care deeply about helping others, and introduces them to charities in need.

Brent Murray, who was born with clubfoot and who had his own surgery as a baby, saw an ad for a T-shirt sponsoring MercyShips, a fleet of hospital ships that travel to remote regions in need of medical care. Watch as Brent’s engagement on Facebook contributes to the successful surgery of Loic Mbeze, a three year old boy with knock knees from the Congo, who without surgery would have lost his ability to walk.
