WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF 100 WOMEN WHO CARE?
100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan as a simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. At their first one-hour meeting, the group of over 100 women each wrote a check for $100 directly to The Center For Family Health, their chosen local charity, raising $12,800 to buy 300 new baby cribs. Since then, chapters have formed all over the country.
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND THE OZAUKEE CHAPTER?
100+ Women Who Care - Ozaukee County Chapter began in November, 2014 after members Mary Karnitz and Cheryl Ross reached out to friends on Facebook about launching a chapter in Ozaukee County. With over 40 women willing to join in just a weekend, they committed to organizing the group and starting a local chapter. Mica Lawrence, Tracy Modjeski and Bridget Molitor quickly answered the call to be part of the formation group. The first meeting was held in February, 2015.
Total donations to local organizations exceeded $50,000 in the first seven quarters combined.
100 Women Who Care is not a grassroots group. A good idea spreads, and this good idea has taken root in chapters all over the world. The 100 WHO CARE ALLIANCE is a networking organization for those spearheading chapters around the world.
