It’s Time to Upgrade Your Girls Night Out

100 Women Who Care can make a world of difference

A simple concept to have fun and give back in a big way

Campbell River women have banded together to bring their nights out to the next level. And they’re creating lasting change in their community.

There are so many amazing community groups doing necessary work in Campbell River. Sometimes we want to give money to these groups, but it can be hard to come up with enough to make it meaningful.

That’s where 100 Women Who Care comes in. Because when a lot of people give a little, it goes a long way.

Have you ever spent $100 on a girls night out?

What if you could still have the night out, but donate the $100 and watch it become $10,000 in less than 100 minutes?

By joining with another 100 Women Who Care, you can get the best of both worlds. You can give to local groups and have a night out with other amazing women who want to give back just as much as you do.

Think charity gala but not just for the stinking rich.

If this sounds like something you’d like to get behind, then it’s time to start nominating your favourite local community groups!

To join and become a voting member, you need to give $100 dollars to the organization. As a member, you’re eligible to go to their events and cast your vote on which group should receive funding.

There next event is a cocktail reveal party. It’s open to all members and will be held on September 7th at 5:00pm at the Campbell River Golf & Country Club.

You can find a list of all the groups currently nominated, along with how to become a member on their website.

Nothing replaces stable government funding for community groups. But organizations like 100 Women Who Care show us how powerful we can be when we work together to make good things happen.

And this chapter is in Campbell River. If you feel inspired, remember the whole thing was set up by three women, so you can create your own where you live.

“The local impact will be immediate! The 100 women who donate can look forward to hearing back from the charities who received the donation, on the difference it made in our community and improve the lives of our neighbours,” said 100 Women Who Care founders Amanda Raleigh, Colleen Evans, and Tina Bailey.

If you like the idea, it’s time to become your own local Robin Hood.

Steal it. With a little effort, you can create another movement to give back just as much where you are.
