MAD Marketplace


The vision of MAD Marketplace is so simple!  To create a global consumer movement that matters!  They are not just words!  We want the difference we make to be global.  We want consumers to know of ways to be good stewards when they shop!  If we all shop with the hope to make a difference, our spending creates a movement and that matters!

MAD Marketplace Launched an Online Retail Store on November 1st!

Who Says Shopping and Making A Difference Don’t Go Together?

There are clearly more problems around us than there are solutions. Most of them are quite daunting…poverty, hunger, human trafficking, orphan care, clean water projects, barriers to employment, and so many more. As consumers, we can choose to buy differently and be a part of the solution.

The mission of MAD Marketplace is to tell stories, sell products and help people.

As consumers, we are always shopping and we do much of it online. MAD Marketplace wants to cater to online shoppers by creating a shopping experience that provides a wide variety of unique and practical products, tell the incredible stories behind each of them, and provide a simple way for everyone to help others.

MAD Marketplace’s products give back in different ways. Some examples include buy one give one, proceeds that participate in micro-lending, sustainable living wages, empowering women, meal for meal, drop for drop, and restoring hearing. No matter what you buy, every purchase has a purpose!

MAD Marketplace offers the consumer a different way to shop, a different reason to buy, and more than one way to help. Customers may choose products that vary from peanut butter, baby blankets, coffee, lamps, statement jewelry, and rain boots, to name just a few.
