I joined 100 women who care because I felt it was an incredible initiative that served immediate needs within the community on a continuous basis. It has allowed me to truly understand and appreciate where my contributions go and has taught me about many charitable organizations and the work they do in Mississauga.

I joined this Chapter to feel connected to community and service, and I love being part of something bigger than myself. It is amazing to actually feel the impact of many people coming together with the common goal of helping others. It is a great reminder that our actions, however small, ripple out, creating change in the world!

The feminine energy is all about giving, nurturing, and creating. What better way to fulfill this deep inner desire than coming together with other like-minded women and amplify our ability to make a difference? By joining this Chapter, it made it possible for me to be part of this amazing community of women, where we collectively support those who are already invested in making a difference.

When I first heard about this group, I wondered just how much I could do. But, once I thought it through, I realized that while my donation may be small, together with like minded women, we CAN make a difference. I love that we have a say in what charity we support, that all the charities are local and that 100% of the monies collected go to charity.
When I heard about 100 Women Who Care Mississauga, I immediately realized the immense good that I personally could do in my own small way, and still have a major impact. As Ryunosuke Satoro said, “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” I wanted to be a part of this ocean that would enrich the lives of others. After having joined, I see the hard work put in by the members of the Vetting Committee, and all the other ladies that come together at every Giving Circle, and I feel very proud to be associated with such an inspiring group of women with the common goal of making the world a better place.

Community and giving back are big deals to me!! I know and trust so many of the amazing women in this group that I just knew together we can accomplish so many AMAZING things!! Joining this group meant I could do more for local charities who in turn could help so many more people in need! It is quite an educational group as well, I get to learn about so many more charities and what they are doing for the community too! It has truly been fulfilling!! Thank you!

I joined the chapter because I had been looking for a way to give locally to reputable charities, without too much effort. 100 Women Who Care Mississauga does a great job at wetting the charities before the vote. Before I joined, I used to feel guilty about choosing one charity over another, but now making that decision with 99 other like-minded women feels great. I am one of those people who wants to make a habit of things that are worth doing and by committing to giving three times a year, I feel like I am on track. Many thanks to the organizers and the Steering Committee…

It is an immense privilege to be able to help others. I recently completed a profoundly satisfying project with the Compass Foodbank and Outreach Centre, designing their amazing cookbook, All Roads Lead to Good Food. As long as I have the ability to help others, I will continue to do so. That is why I am honoured to be part of the 100 Women Who Care – by collectively working toward a charitable goal, we as women multiply our sharing potential and create a bigger impact than I can ever make on my own.

We each have a responsibility to help others and I know these powerful women feel the same way. To make a difference locally is what this is all about! We are doing just that, and I am so proud to be a part of this initiative!

I joined 100 Women Who Care Mississauga to make a difference in our community and be part of something significant. I love this community. I get to work alongside some amazing women who have the same values as I do. Donating time, energy, and money to people who need it the most gives me a sense of satisfaction. I feel I have received more than I gave; to be part of this chapter has been a blessing. I hope to make an example with my children and show them they can make positive changes in the world at a young age.
