100 Women Who Give a Hoot is about…
100 WOMEN MAKING A POWERFUL LOCAL IMPACT IN A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF TIME.
Life can get crazy. We all do our best to give our time and our money when and where we can. For many of us, though, there never seems to be enough of either to make the kind of impact we wish to make. It seems we either overextend ourselves, then feel bad when we can’t keep up, OR we shy away from commitments because we don’t want to take on anything if we’re not 100% certain we can live up to growing needs.
Introducing … 100 Women Who Give a Hoot. As a member, you make a simple, yet powerful commitment that has an immediate impact on our local community:
- Each member agrees to come to 4 meetings per year (one per quarter).
- Each member comes to the meeting with a $100 check (blank) and agrees to write that check to one chosen charity at the end of the meeting.
- Meetings are an hour long. At each meeting, three local charities (all nominated by our members) make separate, 5-minute presentations to tell the group who they are and how they will use the $10,000 to make a difference for their cause. After 15 minutes, each woman votes and the charity with the most votes is the recipient of the $10,000 donation.
- At the next meeting, the chosen charity takes the first 15 minutes to update the membership on how the donation was used and the impact it is making.
That’s it. Really. So simple. So fun. So profound.
