100+ Women Who Care in East County Oregon

This is fundraising made easy at it’s finest!  To raise over $10,000 in just under an hour, no hassle, no knocking on doors and hitting the streets is unheard of, or at least it was!
100+ Women Who Care East County has got this figured out!  Once a quarter, that’s every three months, they hold a meeting and each member pledges $100.  The members write the name of their favorite charity or non-profit organization on a card and drop it in a bowl.  Three cards are drawn from the bowl and each organization that was drawn then has an opportunity to present to the group who they are, what their organization does for the community and how they would use the funds.  It is amazing the stories that are told and all the incredible things that are happening right here in our back yards! Then the vote is cast, and the winner announced right there and then! 
Here’s a list of the charities and non-profits that have benefited to date:
YMCA Camp Collins $5,500
T.I.P. (Trauma Intervention Program) $8,500
Boxes of Love $10,400
My Father’s House $12,000
Serendipity $11,500
GBEF (Gresham Barlow Education Foundation) $10,000

For a grand total of $57,900!  Isn’t that incredible? And all because 100 Women Who Care decided to get together and each pledge $100 per quarter.  There are currently 107 members and growing! If you’d like to be a part of the best and easiest fundraiser ever, please to go http://100womenwhocareeastcounty.org and join today!  

The next meeting will be next Thursday, February 13th at Clear Creek Events, 376 NE 219th Ave, Gresham (behind Crunch Fitness) from 6pm to 7:30pm.
