'I've always wanted to start something that matters. Something that impacts lives and allows others to carry that influence forward.
The people, places, and culture of my country remind me that someone with so little can carry the biggest smile and that happiness is just a matter of perspective. I thought it would only be right to start my first project by creating a swimsuit line, inspired by the amazing people who’ve impacted my life. Each swimsuit embodies a unique, true story behind the name.
Choosing a charity was by far the hardest part of the process. I wanted to pick something that I can relate to. When I heard about ''United Through Sport'', I knew it was the perfect fit. Playing sports can provide an outlet for people facing overwhelming obstacles in life. I personally can relate to these struggles having grown up with depression and I know that sports can be a source of motivation, confidence, and resolve. Sports can serve as an escape from the often difficult world that we live in and I believe that every child should have the opportunity to play. There are children around the world who are prohibited from pursuing a dream in sports they may not even know they have yet, because they do not have the means to explore such dreams. This charity reflects my hope to provide more opportunity and support to those who need it the most.
This charity is also a big reason why I started my own Non-profit 3 years ago, The Madison Callaghan Foundation. My organization advocates for children’s rights, we’ve provided educational materials, sporting equipment & scholarships worldwide. I ultimately hope to insure my foundation is a safety net and another family to those in need.
I believe our children are the future. It is our civic duty to love, protect and teach our younger generations. Every child deserves the opportunity to love, live and learn in peace. It’s up to us to make sure children our given the rightful resources needed to succeed. That is what I’ve dedicated my life’s work to.
