#TheGreatDonate: A Recap November 05, 2015 13:26

We recently held our first annual fundraiser called The Great Donate and it was indeed very great! In case you were unable to make it, we had live music, cocktails with KC Rieger Whiskey, Gin and Vodka, appetizers donated by Westside Local and Fevere Bread, an outdoor smore's bar and a silent auction! We also did a live donation to all of our eight Kansas City partnered organizations and donated 400 pairs of underwear!

Here are some pictures of us doing our live donations:

Now, for some fun shots of guests enjoying our event:

In the end, we raised enough money to meet our goal to be able to travel to Haiti on November 16th to do our very first International drop-off!  While we are there, we will be volunteering our time and hearts for an organization called Circle of Health International - providing safe-birthing resources for women and babies in a refugee camp in Fond Parisian.  Circle of Health International reached out to us a few months ago asking if we could help them out with some underwear donations, and we were thrilled to be able to help! So, we made the goal of our fundraiser The Great Donate to be to raise enough funds to send us to Haiti to donate 300 pairs of MADI undies to women of all ages. Now, with the help of all of our amazing supporters we will be heading to Haiti in 11 days! 
We could not be more thankful to everyone who came and showed us their love and support! We can not wait to see you all next year! & stay tuned to hear more about our trip to Haiti!

 

 


First Annual Fundraiser: #TheGreatDonate October 12, 2015 22:29

Ladies and Gentleman, on Saturday October 24, 2015 from 7pm-11pm at MADI headquarters (1659 Summit, KCMO) we will be hosting our first annual fundraiser, The Great Donate! This fundraiser is to help spread the word about our new 501c3 non-profit status of MADI Apparel's subsidiary, MADI Donations, INC. We'll also be doing some undie donating live at the event to our local partnered organizations!

Live and in person, we will be donating 50 pairs of underwear to all eight of our Kansas City partnered organizations! You heard it, that's 400 total pairs! And we could not be more excited!

Hope House, one of our Kansas City partnered organizations we will be donating to for the second time at The Great Donate fundraiser.

The event will be lots of fun, featuring live music, cocktails with KC Rieger Whiskey, Gin and Vodka, appetizers donated by Westside Local and Fevere Bread, an outdoor fall smore's bar and a silent auction!  Tickets are $25 with a $10 gift card to MADI Apparel included in the price of your ticket!  Fair Value of Benefits Received: $17.  $8 of ticket price may be claimed as a tax-deductible charitable contribution!  To purchase a ticket, click here

We will also be accepting charitable donations at the fundraiser (which are tax deductible)!  The donations will directly help survivors of domestic violence, survivors of rape, those affected by natural disaster, etc by funding additional production of underwear to be donated, out-of-state and abroad donation drop-off trips, and marketing/video PSAs to help raise awareness. This is a great way to be able to help women in need without buying underwear for yourself. 

Keep in mind, underwear is the most needed and most under-donated item of clothing as it lands on the "most urgent needs list" at most womens shelters across the country. Help us change that and Make a Difference in the lives of women across the street and around the world!

Grande Ivory Affair September 16, 2015 21:22

On July 11th MADI Apparel held the Grande Ivory Affair celebrating the launch of our second color option, ivory! The event was a blast with music, drinks, appetizers and lots of panty shopping!

 

We have had many customers requesting ivory for bridal and bachelorette gifts and it really made perfect sense for us to offer it because MADI Apparel is focused on three words: simple, elegant and powerful. We want our colors and designs to reflect those three words, and now with the addition of ivory to our color options we believe we are! 

If you want to join in on the next MADI Apparel event, save the date for our Oct 24th fundraiser!  All funds raised will be considered "charitable contributions" and will help us in various ways like traveling to our partnered donation recipients across the US and globe, spreading awareness through PSAs (video production) and other advertisements. For more information, keep tabs on our social media and visit our non-profit website, www.MADIdonations.com!
