MAKE A DIFFERENCE MOVEMENT
For all MADI intimates purchased, a woman in need will receive a new, clean pair of undies.
We donate multiple styles made from organically sustainable viscose from bamboo - a fast-drying, odor-resistant fabric that can be washed and hang-dried overnight. Please unite with us to help women across the street and around the world!
HOW OUR MISSION WORKS BETWEEN OUR NON-PROFIT AND FOR-PROFIT ENTITIES
MADI Apparel, LLC (for-profit entity) determines how many intimate apparel items we've sold at the end of the month. MADI Apparel will then donate a matching number amount of underwear to MADI Donations, INC (non-profit entity.) MADI Donations, INC will donate that amount of underwear (and sometimes will pay for additional pairs of underwear to be donated) to various organizations that reach out to MADI requesting underwear for the women they serve.
Below is a list of ever-growing charities and organizations that we've partnered with to get our modest MADI briefs in the hands of women - and pictures from recent undie drops! Check back on our donation drop-off progress as our list is constantly growing!
CURRENT DONATION UPDATE:
We've donated to over 2,500 women in over 30 organizations in 7 countries!

Summer 2014, we were contacted by a survivor of Domestic Abuse. She read about our buy one give one underwear and emailed us asking if we would consider sending donations to her and her daughter. Instead of mailing the donations, we decided to make a special trip to California to visit the survivor and personally hear her story. We also visited a few of our California partnered organizations during the trip.
