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.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
