Our mission at Modibodi is to empower all women and we believe no woman should be held back or feel ashamed because of their body or bodily functions.
We partner with charities that are equally committed to the empowerment of women, and below is a few of the fabulous charities we support.
Modibodi has partnered with the McGrath Foundation to help make life for families experiencing breast cancer that little bit easier.
The Foundation raises funds to place specialist breast care nurses in communities across Australia, to support the thousands of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, and to increase breast health understanding and awareness. So that, no matter where someone with breast cancer lives, a McGrath Breast Care Nurse is there to support them and their family, free of charge, every step of the way.
When purchasing the Sensual Boyleg, Rose Pink a percentage of the sale will be donated directly to the McGrath Foundation.

SHARE THE DIGNITY
1 in 100 women are homeless in Australia and there are 1,000s of women living in shelters across Australia. Faced with little money, these women cannot afford feminine hygiene, and so are forced to protect themselves from their monthly period and bladder weakness with bits of newspaper or bulky rags.
The goal of Share the Dignity is for all Australians to work together to give homeless women access to feminine hygiene products. A small step towards saving their dignity.
For the thousands of homeless women and women of domestic violence living in shelters, the cost and accessibility to feminine hygiene is prohibitive and so they are forced to use newspaper and dirty rags to protect themselves. The lack of suitable hygiene options severely impacts their dignity and their ability to gain employment.
That’s why we have partnered with Share the Dignity Australia. For every purchase, we donate a percentage of the profits to directly deliver our Modibodi underpants into the hands of women in need.

DAYS FOR GIRLS (DFG)
DFGA’s aim is for every woman in need to have access to feminine hygiene. Part of their work includes encouraging volunteers to contribute towards and produce reusable feminine hygiene kits.
“What if not having sanitary supplies meant DAYS without school, DAYS without income, DAYS without leaving the house? Girls use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, anything they can find…but still miss up to 2 months of school every year. Worse, girls are often exploited in exchange for hygiene. It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world. The poverty cycle can be broken when girls stay in school. Days For Girls oversee (with the help of volunteers) the making and distribution of reusable sanitary kits for these women in need, which directly improve the life of a girl – education, safety and dignity.”

Samaritans Youth Accommodation services assist young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness across Newcastle and the Hunter, NSW.
The service includes two crisis accommodation refuges, medium term supported accommodation and an outreach team of case workers. The service provides assistance to young people aged 12-24 to secure stable accommodation and works with up to 1000 young people each year. The service often works with young people who have little to no income and are couch surfing or rough sleeping.
Modibodi has partnered with Samaritans to provide Modibodi underwear free of charge to women in need throughout the Hunter through Samaritans Youth Homelessness services.
