Madi prides herself in being charitable. She has volunteered for as long as she can remember. While in high school Madi was awarded the National Volunteer of the week by the American Lung Association for her Capture Every Breath campaign, a fundraiser where she shoots family and senior portraits in exchange for a donation to the American Lung Association. Madi has always said “I may have asthma, but asthma doesn’t have me.” She was the family chair for several ALA North Florida events and co-hosted their O2 Ball in 2011. Through her work with the ALA she learned how rewarding community service can be.
Since then, Madi has volunteered with the St Augustine Lions Club during their St Augustine Lions Seafood Festival. She helps manage their online presence, social media and assists their festival director throughout the planning process.
Madi is also actively involved in the Limelight Theatre. She volunteers both backstage and onstage. She also works as a teaching artist for their KidzfACTory education program. She loves helping kids discover the magic of theatre! See more about her theatre involvement here.
Madi’s favorite philanthropic project has to Wish Upon a Princess, an affiliate of Girly-Girl Partea’s. Wish Upon a Princess provides character visits for various charity and non-profit organizations events in North FL. Through Wish Upon a Princess, Madi gets to become various characters to make dreams come true for local families. For more information visit Girly-Girl Parteas.
