It’s been a crappy week. Literally. In an awful turn of events, a sewerage pipe exploded at our premises. While we hoped we could salvage at least half of our contents, contamination issues meant that was not the case. While at the end of the day, ‘stuff’ is not important, it was heartbreaking to throw food, clothing, treats and raw materials – destined to help people in need – in the bin. I’ve spent more than seven years building up m.a.d.woman and the m.a.d.woman foundation and spent the past few days riding an emotional rollercoaster, wondering if I should throw in the towel.
We are thrilled to finally be able to launch the m.a.d.woman foundation. m.a.d.woman was set up to encourage, engage and inspire people to make a difference to their communities, environment and people in need. In the past six years, m.a.d.woman has been joined by around 7000 people to help more than 300,000 people doing it tough. This new charity status will enable us to help many, many more.
