What is Undie 500?!?

Postby speedy1 » Sun Jan 23, 2011 1:25 pm

The Undie 500 is an annual fundraiser to collect monetary and actual underwear (NEW) for Dignity U Wear. We will be doing something new this year (details following soon) but I wanted to give everybody enough notice for the event.

For the last 3 years Sunshine MINIs has participated in an event called Undie Sunday Undie Monday for Dignity U Wear (AKA Undie 500) and has finished in the top 5 fundraising teams each time. Last year, we were the #1 team collecting over the equivalence of 8,000 pairs of underwear. Monetary donations and/or underwear is collected for this fundraising event – Every $10 is equal to 10 pairs of underwear in the final calculations.

Many of you already donate clothing to various agencies, but where do people in need obtain underwear? I personally don’t think used underwear is very sanitary. :-# Well, that is why Dignity U Wear has this underwear drive every year. This way people will receive NEW underwear.

Dignity U Wear was founded in April 2000 in Jacksonville, FL by philanthropist and Holocaust survivor, Henri Landwirth to provide new socks and underwear to the homeless. "I know what it means not to have clothes - to be stripped of dignity and to give up on all hope," says Henri. "And when I see children suffering indignities, I know we have to help." Henri founded Dignity U Wear to create real change in the lives of children and adults in need. A change you can see, change that restores broken spirits and restores hope and self-esteem. That is why only brand new clothes are distributed

Dignity U Wear provides brand new clothing to men, women, and children in need. The new clothing is donated to Dignity U Wear from partner manufacturers, distributors and retailers. To get the clothes to the people who need them most, they work with a network of nonprofit agencies, schools and other organizations around the country. They order what they need (in most cases, gender and size-specific) and they get them the most appropriate clothing for their population. More information about Dignity U Wear can be found at .

Several people have already come up with undie collecting ideas ..listed below are some of their ideas. What are yours??
1. Doing a collection at their flag football team
2. Start a collection at their school
3. Ask for a Financial donation from their employer
4. Put a box next to their desk at the office with a sign...Drop Your Drawers Here !!
5. Go to the local Walmart and ask for a donation of undies or diapers
6. Go to the local grocery store and ask for a donation of Diapers.
7. Have a bake sale
8. Kids help out too....lemonade stand, collection at boy/girl scouts
Please let me know if you need anything to assist with your collections.
