MADI Donations is the 501c3 non-profit subsidiary of MADI Apparel, LLC.
MADI Apparel (Make a Difference Intimate Apparel) donates a pair of underwear to a woman in need for every intimate item sold. We have donated domestically and internationally over 5,500 pairs of the most needed, under-donated item of clothing -- underwear! The underwear are made from organic viscose from bamboo that is fast-drying, self-wicking, odor-preventing, SUPER SOFT and can be washed and hang-dried overnight. More importantly, the underwear we donate is the same high quality, elegant underwear we sell to our valued customers.
Since empowering women is our core mission, it makes sense that MADI is a woman-owned small business that hires woman-owned cut and sew teams and trains local at-risk women to sew our products. All of our products are USA made in Kansas City.
Here's how your tax-deductible donations will directly impact the lives of women in need:
In May of 2018, our 501c3 non-profit subsidiary - MADI Donations - launched MADI Makes, a seamstress job-training program for women facing employment barriers in Kansas City. The MADI Makes program empowers individuals to break cycles of chronic homelessness + unemployment and create pathways to self-sufficiency through a learned vocational skill. The goal of the program is to empower at-risk women with employment barriers attain and sustain jobs and build a better life. Working in partnership with Hope Faith Ministries, funds raised for the program will allow us to teach women to sew our products on commercial sewing machines.
Once the apprentice successfully graduates from the program, MADI Apparel (our for-profit company) will hire the women to sew our products on a contract basis. Not only will apprentices learn commercial sewing skills, but also basic work skills, workplace interaction skills and other skills needed to build confidence and pave the way toward fulfilling employment in the community and the growing garment industry.
Help us congratulate recent program graduates, Amanda and Andrescia!
