Food For The Poor and Sevenly.org, a cause marketing organization, joined together to raise enough funds to feed more than 1,800 impoverished children in Guatemala for two months.
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Feb. 26, 2014) – Food For The Poor and Sevenly.org have completed a one-week campaign that has raised enough funds to feed more than 1,800 hungry children in Guatemala for two months.
"We deeply admire the work of Food For The Poor, and we felt honored to team up with the organization for a campaign partnership,” said Megan Guerra, Director of Charity Relations for Sevenly.
For a period of seven days, Sevenly - a cause marketing organization created nearly three years ago - sold limited-edition merchandise on behalf of Food For The Poor. A donation of $7 from each purchase was used to aid the charity’s hunger relief efforts in the Central American country, where more than half of the population lives below the poverty line.
“I commend the awesome work Sevenly is doing to bring awareness to great causes,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor. “I am simply amazed at what our two organizations, with the help of supporters, were able to accomplish in only a matter of days for needy children in Guatemala. The meals provided will be truly lifesaving.”
Food For The Poor provides food, shelter, water and agricultural training to hundreds of thousands living in developing countries. Earlier this month, the charity commemorated 32 years of service.
