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!
