55% of children who did not have underwear to wear wanted to skip school or refused to go to school because he or she was embarrassed.
Undies are often easy to overlook, but we believe these little layers can lead to greatness.
Undies for Everyone (UFE) was founded in 2012 after a social worker shared with Rabbi Amy Weiss that there was a serious need for new underwear for disadvantaged children. As a blogger for the Houston Chronicle, Rabbi Weiss recognized the need and Undies for Everyone was born.
“Every contribution helps me serve these children in moments of need, helping them feel clean and comfortable, ready to learn, and good about themselves.”
