We all felt proud to be members of the original Uxbridge chapter and are honoured to have the opportunity to work with some amazing ladies to continue the legacy of the original founders. We believe in the power of women and our ability to support and care for each other. We look forward to an exciting ride!
What you see today is the result of a group of power women who have pulled together to get our group back up and running.
When 100 Women Who Care Uxbridge first started, I was one of the first to sign up.... I loved the way it was designed. I immediately nominated Sunrise Pregnancy and Family Support Services, a local charity. I was surprised when my name was drawn from the box, and thrilled when it was voted to receive the very first donation.
Fast forward a few years . . . When I heard that the original 100 Women Who Care Uxbridge Founders were stepping down, I immediately reached out to see how I could help breathe new life into this amazing group. I was not the only one, what you see today is the result of a group of power women who have pulled together to get our group back up and running.
A mother of three and owner of Uxbridge Physiotherapy, Jodi has been a member of 100 Women since it started in our town. She has always liked the way the meetings are efficiently run, happen four times per year, allow her to support local charities, socialize and network.
Jodi is part of the executive now, and aspires to continue the great work the original executive did at setting up the Uxbridge Chapter of 100 Women Who Care. This organization is blessed to have many hands to make the work lighter, and we welcome new members to join us! Thank you all for being part of supporting local charities that need our help now more than ever.
Having been a part of the 100 Women Uxbridge chapter for many years and seeing the impact it has made with our local charities, I was happy to be able to help resurrect the group and continue the tradition of giving back to our community.
Being a part of the executive of this group furthers my commitment to being an active participant in Uxbridge, demonstrates to my daughter the importance of lending a hand and allows for networking opportunities with other like-minded women.
Community, both local and global, has always been important to me. From the shantytowns of South Africa to the food banks of Uxbridge, I have always felt compelled to do my part. Imagine my excitement when I first learned about 100 Women Who Care in 2013. I was working full time as an elementary teacher and like all of us, life was busy.
I was inspired by the concept of 100 like minded women coming together for one hour, four times a year, to make a significant contribution to their community in such a short period of time. The simplicity of the model and the fun and efficient way to give back really resonated with me.
