I joined 100 Women Who Care Mississauga to collaborate with other women for the good of our community. The funds we give to organizations serving Mississauga go a long way to help families in Mississauga. Every dollar makes a difference. #thePowerof100 makes a difference.

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!

When I first learned about this chapter, I instantly reached out asking if I could help. As a business owner of a boutique web agency, I felt compelled to contribute to the success of this group in the best way that I knew how. I offered to build the website! Since then, I have stayed involved as a member because working together in a collective group of like-minded women and making an impact on a local community level is very important to me. When we team up and work together, we create a massive wave of positive change!

I love the power of our group’s efforts in creating positive change in our community. Together we can create new programs that can be profoundly beneficial, that wouldn’t exist if I made a single donation on my own. That is why I joined!

I joined the 100 Women Who Care Mississauga because of my belief that together we can make a huge impact in our local charities. By combining our $100 donation, we can build a special group of like minded women that regularly donate and create a powerful change in our community.

I like the fact that I know my money is going to exactly where I expect it to. I have not been able to get out into the community to volunteer in person as I have wanted to, so this is a great alternative to still be able to serve.

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.

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.

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.
