"I have spent the majority of my career in the not-for-profit sector and know first hand the significance a $10,000 donation can make. When I first heard about the 100 Women Who Care concept, I thought this was something that Vancouver needed. A quick google search showed me that I missed the first meeting and have been a member ever since. I joined the executive to help ensure this amazing group could continue to make an impact on individuals and charities in Metro Vancouver."
"In 2015, I joined 100 Women Who Care Vancouver. Five years later, I am proud and excited to join the Executive Committee to continue its work. Volunteering and giving back are part of my core values and it’s fulfilling to know that that our group of incredible women make a difference in the lives of her community and the city I love."
"I joined 100 Women Vancouver because of its simple giving concept. I love the idea of one member's $100 growing into $10,000 or more to support the many dedicated charities that do important work in the Metro Vancouver area. 100% of donations go directly to charities which makes an immediate and positive impact to the community. I also get energized and inspired by the stories of so many hardworking charities that present at our meetings."
"My first introduction to 100 Women was when I attended a meeting in Kamloops while visiting family. I thoroughly enjoyed the group, the meeting and was impressed by how they raised money for various local charities. I knew right away this was an organization I would enjoy being a member of. As soon as I came home, I looked up the Vancouver chapter and joined immediately. When I retired back in 2019, I also knew I wanted to become more involved with the organization and find ways I could help. With the resignation of Char it seemed like an ideal opportunity to contribute. With all charities suffering these days, the work of groups like 100 Women are even more important. I look forward to working with all our members to build on the great work of Char and increase our membership to be able to help even more in our community."
