100 Women Who Care raise funds for local charities

100woomen-websitebanner-copyWant to meet other women and give back to your community? Join the 100 Women Who Care movement at their next meeting.

Date: Tues. Jan 19
Time: Registration 7pm; meeting 7:30-8:30
Location: Emma’s Back Porch, 2084 Old Lakeshore Road, downtown Burlington.

The Burlington Chapter of 100 Women Who Care brings together women who care about the Burlington community, its people and causes and who are committed to community service. 100 Women Who Care is a concept that’s been taking root in many communities across North America and it’s now come to life in Burlington.

The concept is very simple – 100 women (or more), donate $100 each (or more if they choose) at four, 1 hour meetings, per year. The goal is for 100 Women Who Care Burlington to collectively generate a minimum of $40,000 annually for local charitable initiatives.

Donations from each meeting go directly to local charities – charities serving our Burlington community.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
