MADI stands for "Make a Difference Intimates" - but it also intentionally represents a woman's name, symbolizing how every woman has the power to change the world. Our founder Hayley wanted MADI customers to picture a woman like your own sister, mother or friend with a face, with a name (like MADI) receiving the donated pair of underwear. Use #hersuperpower if you know a woman who beats battles every day or who is doing something amazing to better the world.

Bobbi is a beautiful, strong mother seeking shelter with her children at Sheffield Place in Kansas City. She was excited about her new, clean luxurious MADI undies and couldn't wait to try them on! Bobbi shared her story with us about how she left an unhealthy relationship and job and is striving to become a good role model for her children.
MEET CAMILA (name changed for safety precaution)
"Camila" is a survivor of domestic violence who was living in government housing and reached out to us requesting underwear donations for her and her daughter after reading about MADI. We traveled across the country from Florida to meet her in Fresno, California to hear her story. She hand-wrote journal entries detailing her story and the courage it took to escape her abusive ex-husband. She is still in danger and constantly on the run from her abuser as he has continued to chase her - for the past 17 years.
