We are 100 women in Uxbridge who care about local community causes and who are committed to community service. We gather for just one hour every three months where, at each meeting, we jointly select a local charity (must be based and/or serve Uxbridge) or not-for-profit organization and write a $100 cheque (per person) to the selected organization.
Then, join 100 Women Who Care Uxbridge!
100 Women Who Care was started in November 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities, Her group of 100 Women, at their first one-hour meeting, each wrote a cheque for $100 directly to the charity, raising $10,000 to buy 300 new cribs for an organization in their city. Since then, they have grown to over 200 members and 100 Women Who Care chapters are forming all over the country.
Andrea Scowcroft brought the idea to Uxbridge after speaking to her sister, Meighan, who belongs to the chapter in Kingston. When she told her friends, Janice Fitger and Mimi Brown about the idea, they immediately offered to help! Miranda Sheppard has been an amazing help with this initiative from the beginning and in fact was our first member! Miranda has agreed to join the Executive as our Creative Director. Together, they co-founded 100 Women Who Care Uxbridge!
