30 Nonprofit Founders that Will Impact the World in 2020: featuring founder Hayley Santell

Our founder Hayley Santell was recently featured in CAUSEARTIST's 30 Nonprofit Founders That Will Impact the World in 2020.

According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the United States. Behind every nonprofit organization is a talented, dedicated, nonprofit founder with a compelling mission and a transformational vision. These nonprofit founders profiled below exhibit the essential attributes of an impactful nonprofit leader, and their organizations will undoubtedly better the world in 2020.

Hayley is the founder of MADI Donations, the subsidiary of MADI Apparel, a woman-owned small business that manufactures a beautiful line of staple basics in the US, though woman owned cut and sew teams. For every garment purchased from the line that includes sustainable athleisure wear, sustainable intimates, bamboo robes, and ethical loungewear, MADI Apparel donates a new pair of elegant underwear to a woman in need. So far she has donated over 6500 pairs of underwear. Santell founded MADI Donations to help round out the impact the company already makes by teaching at-risk women (some o the very same women who received donation pairs through MADI Apparel), to sew the donation pairs of underwear on commercial sewing machines. The MADI Makes training program has trained two at-risk women so far and is in the process of training two more women to sew commercially. It's a lifetime skill for wonderful, motivated women. Once they graduate from the MADI Makes program, MADI Apparel - the for-profit - hires them on a contract basis to sew the donation pairs."
