100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan. Karen saw that the giving circle concept was a simple way for busy women to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. At the first meeting, a group of over 100 women chose The Center for Family Health as their recipient. Each member wrote a check for $100 directly to the charity raising a total of $12,800 in one hour. The Centre quickly used the donations to buy 300 new baby cribs. Since then, chapters have formed all over the North America, South East Asia and Ireland.
THE STORY BEHIND THE WARMLAND GROUP
100 Warmland Women was formed in December of 2017 as a response to the tremendous spirit of generosity that exists in the Cowichan Valley. While many chapters in large cities struggle to gather 100 members, Pam Richmond recognised the giving nature of her fellow Warmlanders and floated the idea on Facebook. Within hours she had forty women wanting to join! A Lead Team of organizers was formed within days and 100 Warmland Women was launched.
