KANSAS CITY LOVES MADI FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
For our blog community thinking about a gift with heart, hotness and that also helps a good cause, we sharing a nice note from an inspiring LOCAL biz.
Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift that Gives Back
Open 11 - 7 on Feb 13 and 14 at their local store at 1659 Summit and popping up at lululemon in Town Center on Feb 13th.
It’s truly the Valentine’s Day gift that keeps on giving. As you know, MADI Apparel, (which stands for Make a Difference Intimate Apparel), is a line of elegant, eco-friendly underwear and loungewear that donates a new pair of underwear to women in domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters and rape crisis centers for every MADI garment purchased. Buy one, give one. MADI is the TOMS Shoes of underwear. .
Another plus, the underwear, and loungewear are made in KC from viscose from bamboo, beautiful high-end fabric that is self wicking, anti microbial and quick drying so women in need can hand wash and hang dry a pair overnight - important for women with little access to washers. Not only is the bamboo fabric very sustainable, MADI is a woman-owned small business and they hire woman-owned cut and sew teams to manufacture the underwear in the US, substantially lowering their carbon footprint.
So far, MADI has donated over 5,000 pairs of underwear to women in need through 26 partnered organizations including domestic violence shelters, homeless shelters, rape crisis centers and international aid organizations.
