As parents and athletes running a family-driven business, we want to introduce more kids to the active lifestyle that our family is fortunate to enjoy. Access to appropriate apparel and equipment can be a barrier for kids participating in sports, so our MALO republic mission includes providing sports clothing and activewear to less fortunate children.
Everyone remembers receiving their first sports kit and how it made them feel special and motivated to train and perform their best. We want to give more kids that feeling. We are committed to encouraging more kids to lead an active lifestyle by providing them with high quality apparel to play sports and pursue physical activity.
With our “Buy One | Give One” program, every time you make a purchase of any men's or women's top or bottom from MALO Republic, we will donate a similar youth item (performance top or bottom) to one of our partner organizations*.
Since 2020, we have donated over 18,000 purpose-made youth pieces, valued at over $450,000 to our reputable partner organizations- Good Sports, Inc. (USA), Kit Bag for Kids (Australia), and SOLA Afghanistan. MALO sponsors Color Runs and the Far West Active Fest, bringing sports and wellness programs to youth in remote communities in Australia.
Check out below for more details on our amazing partners and the work they’re doing to outfit needy kids for sports and outdoor activities. We have specifically chosen to support organizations in the countries & communities we serve the most - the USA & Australia.
Good Sports (USA) gives all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Since 2003, Good Sports’ all time impact comes to more than $50 million in donated sports equipment, impacting over 7 million kids from more than 4,200 youth programs across the country. Good Sports has been awarded a coveted 4-star rating six consecutive times from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity evaluator, for sound fiscal management, transparency and accountability; is a Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance accredited charity; and is listed on Social Impact Exchange’s S&I 100, an index of top American nonprofits creating meaningful social impact.
