Where We've Donated
FOR EVERY STAPLE BASIC PURCHASED, WE DONATE A PAIR OF NEW, CLEAN UNDIES TO A WOMAN IN NEED.
Did you know? Underwear is the most needed, under-donated item of clothing. Click to read how our founder launched MADI after learning this shocking statistic.
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.
CURRENT DONATION UPDATE:
For every item purchased, we donate a pair of underwear to a woman in need in domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters, rape clinics and disaster relief situations. We fulfill domestic and international urgent need underwear donation requests regularly. Through your orders, we've donated underwear to over 6,500 women in over 40 organizations and eight countries!
