Mightee Kids & Sevenly

A box of new shirts arrived in the mail c/o Mightee Kids. With each shirt came a postcard….

The older kids began reading to the younger ones the front and back sides of the postcards.Β  The cards talked about the work of Love Without Boundaries and how the purchase of each shirt also meant a $5.00 donation to Love Without Boundaries. As much as the kids liked the shirts, it was the postcards they held onto and wanted to keep. Love Without Boundaries helps provide all kinds of care and medical treatment for children in China without families. The words “cleft lip” on the back of the card captured my 5 year old son. He gets it. He knows what a cleft lip is and what is involved in having a cleft lip surgery. He has watched his sister heal and change. He gets it. He loves his new shirt knowing that other kids are being provided life changing surgeries.

Mightee Kids aims to help teach kids about others in less fortunate circumstances, and provide a way of helping. Each month is a different shirt and a different cause. You can find out more info by clicking here.

I wanted to share this week’s Sevenly campaign. This week the charity is Sweet Nectar Society. “Sweet Nectar Society is a new organization that brings together a network of talented photographers throughout Central California for one important missionβ€”to capture the hope, courage, and strength of children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses, disabilities and injuries, and provide their families with lasting memories.”

Here are a couple of the shirts for this week, you can see more designs and other items by clicking here.

I was really hoping to get a photo of all 5 kids in their Mightee Kids shirts. But…sometimes my best efforts fall short. I got all the kids in the shirts and then Little One got cranky and went down for a nap. I thought I’d try the other four together. Evidently laying in grass and looking up at the bright sun doesn’t work so well for photos…

And they were ready to go swimming. Maybe next time….

  • Emily - This Sevenly campaign is one of my favorites! Such an incredible cause and great designs as well.

  • Debbie C - Hee hee…that squinty picture is the best. πŸ™‚ Even if it didn’t “work”, it’s definitely a keeper!

  • Kammie Bryant - I found your blog through the Parents magazine article on you. I read a few posts and was HOOKED! So, I had to go back to the first post and catch myself up. It was a LOT of reading! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. Thank you for sharing your story and family with us! God bless!!

  • Nicole C - I LOVE SEVENLY! I have a couple shirts of theirs and now that I think of it, they are all from adoption related causes. Hopefully I will get my new hummingbird tank top, from the Sweet Nectar Society campaign, next week.

  • Victoria / Justice Pirate - I love BOTH of these sooooo much and have been very into Sevenly since they started with their first shirt (for International Justice Mission). . I always wish I can buy ALL of their products, but I do own a bunch. I saw Mightee Kids a couple months ago and even posted about them recently as well and think it is awesome!!! Yey!!! When I’ve seen the Love without Boundaries features I think of your family. πŸ˜‰

  • Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - I love how you open our eyes to new things with purpose!

  • Lyn - Love this shirt. Love the cause. Bought 1 for my 2 yr olds birthday. Thanks for posting.

  • Joanne Friesen - I recently found your beautiful blog, but had time today to read through some of it, especially your adoption story of your daughter. My husband and I have 2 boys already and have made the decision in the last year to pursue, specifically a special needs adoption from China, and we’re praying for a little girl too. So many of your blog posts regarding her and your wonderful adoption journey hit home and brought tears to my eyes, even though I don’t know you at all. We’re waiting a few more months before we start our own journey for a few things to fall in place and for God’s timing for us, but the desire is so deeply in my heart already and the anxiousness is hard to put aside for now. So, I read blogs and find other people’s stories to read about in hopes that one day, we too will be in your shoes, and will be able to add a sweet little Chinese addition. I pray for your Little One, as she grows and overcomes her challenges with having had a cleft. My 2nd son was born with a cleft lip and palate, so we’re very open to adopting a child with the same challenges. We’ve already been through 4 years of surgeries and speech therapy with him and know we can do it again. I want to encourage you also, as your Little One gets older and starts to speak more, with no doubt needing her own speech therapy and help to find her way in the talking world we live in. Sometimes its hard, especially those days other people will ask what she said and only you as her mother, will know that slew of words meant exactly what she had on her mind. Its one day at a time with all things, but especially with helping a little one with extra special challenges.
    Anyways, thank you for making your story available for people like me to read and be encouraged by. On another note, I very much loved your Mightee Kids post and ordered t-shirts for my own boys and can’t wait for them to get them in the mail too. It is such a wonderful website and idea behind it all. Take care.
