Rabbi Amy Weiss launched Undies for Everyone about 15 years ago, when she learned about the need from a social worker. By the end of this year, her organization will have distributed nearly 5 million pairs to children and victims of natural disasters in 16 cities across the United States. Not having clean underwear can impact a child’s self-esteem, attitude and even school attendance. Therefore, Undies for Everyone fills a crucial gap for kids in need whose families may not be able to afford underwear. This is an especially important cause as donation centers typically do not accept used underwear, CNN reports.
