MADI Takes a Road Trip! March 03, 2016 16:33

We're hitting the road this weekend and could USE YOUR HELP!
We're traveling from KC -> OKC -> Austin -> Houston -> Fayetteville THIS THURSDAY - TUESDAY for 2 reasons:
1.  We're distributing 300 pairs of MADI underwear donations to four women's organizations we've partnered with in each city!
2.  But -- in order to continue donating to these organizations on a regular basis (after this weekend) - we must develop a sustainable buy1give1 model in these cities.  If we find a retail boutique to sell MADI Apparel in, in each of these cities, for all MADI intimates sold in that boutique, we will donate a pair of underwear LOCALLY in that city.
 
Here's how YOU - our MADI friends/supporters - can help: 
We can use your help in finding local boutiques to sell our impactful intimates.  For all MADI intimates sold at any retail boutique, a pair of underwear will be donated back to that local community!  We love keeping MADI donations local and sustainable in that city!
