Our goal is to support the wonderful non-profit and charitable organizations that work at the grassroots level in the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD). There are so many groups that are working to make our communities better, healthier, stronger places to live that don't get all the funding they need to achieve their operating goals.
We don't stop at 100 Women -- we want as many members as we can get! The more women who become involved, the greater the impact we will have on those who live, work and play in our communities. Join us and experience that magical feeling of knowing that you directly impacted lives for the better! We ask that all new members commit to a year of meetings, but you are welcome to stay as long as you want -- giving back is addicting.
Being a member of 100 Women Who Care Kamloops will be rewarding -- personally and for our communities in the TNRD. Meeting like-minded women, networking AND helping a local charity all in one night? What could be better, right? To keep everything running smoothly, we need to have some guidelines in which to follow. These ensure that our members know what's going on, our charities get their donation on the night of the meeting, and everyone goes home happy and feeling great about giving back!
Know that every region customizes the 100 Women Who Care model to suit their needs, we chose the following for Kamloops because it suits our membership.
We want to be part of a community that believes in the spirit of giving. Kamloops has a long and proud history of being a caring community that has fantastic, engaged citizens -- we also have great needs that aren't being met by private and public funding. There are so many incredible, hard-working organizations that stretch every penny and every volunteer hour they can get to support our growing city.
At 100 Women Who Care Kamloops, we encourage our members to "lean in" to giving back. Driving grassroots awareness and encouraging others to get involved is important to us. We know that everyone gives back in their own way -- some of us have time, others skills. Our members are able to give back financially.
We encourage everyone to lean in by donating $100 every three months ($400 annually), and if they find an organization they click with, to start leaning in to volunteering their time or skills.
Did you know that the 100 Who Care movement began in 2006? To learn more about the founder and the history behind this movement, visit 100 Who Care Alliance.
Our founders in Kamloops fell in love with the simplicity of the 100 Women Who Care model and knew that it was a great fit for the women of Kamloops. After researching other chapters and sharing our vision of how Kamloops and area could benefit by a home-grown chapter, the Hotel 540 jumped on board and committed to sponsor our meeting space beginning in the fall of 2014.
