The concept is simple yet powerful. 100 women gather for just 1 hour with $100 each to give. A local charity or non-profit is chosen to receive $10,000. Our meetings are a gathering of like-minded women committed to positively impacting our community.
The “100 Women Who Care” movement was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan. It is a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. Karen’s group of 100 women, at their first one-hour meeting, each wrote a cheque for $100 directly to a local charity. Collectively, they raised $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city. Since then, the idea took root and spread across North American. Today, Women Who Care chapters have formed all over the world. These groups collectively have donated more than a million dollars to locally based organizations.
