Be one of the 100 Women Who Care and raise funds for Campbell River-area charities

What if you could be a part of a local group of women that raised $10,000 in 100 minutes, twice in 2018?

In 2018, the inaugural year of 100 Women Who Care Campbell River, $20,000 was raised and donated by members to four local community causes. This success continues as they build momentum in 2019 with returning members and invite new members to join with them.

“100 Women Who Care CR is designed to make an immediate, direct, and positive impact on the lives of our neighbors by bringing together 100-plus fantastic women in Campbell River who care about local community causes and want to help,” says Colleen Evans, co-founder.

Each woman becomes a member by joining and makes a $100 donation to watch how the 100+ members’ commitment turns into a substantial collective donation.

“We heard from members that they love the idea of a simple and efficient way to support our community. Members meet for 100 minutes at a cocktail reveal party to choose worthy Campbell River organizations to support and vote for who will receive each of the $5,000 donations,” says Amanda Raleigh, co-founder.

In 2018, they reached the goal of 100 Founding Members in less than 48 hours and exceeded their goals for members and donations by collectively raising $20,000, double what they had originally planned. The collective donations enabled them to award $5,000 each to the John Howard Society, North Island Women’s Resource Centre, Foundry and Campbell River Hospice.

Anyone with an interest in supporting non-profit organizations in the Campbell River area is welcome to join. Women are invited to join by visiting www.100womencampbellriver.ca and completing the online member commitment form and make their donation of $100 by May 31.

To be eligible to vote and attend the upcoming Member Cocktail Reveal Party on Wednesday, June 19 from 5 to 6:40 p.m. at the Campbell River Golf & Country Club, you must be a returning member or joined as a new member and have made your $100 donation by May 31. Members will vote by secret ballot at the event for two local organizations to receive a $5,000+ donation each. You’ll also hear about the impact your donations made on the organizations that received a donation in 2018.
