Welcome to 100+ Women Who Care Regina!

100 Women…1 hour…$100 each = $10,000 raised for a local charity!

100+ Women Who Care Regina is a community organization located in Regina Sask. that brings together fabulous women from Regina and surrounding area who care about their community for one hour 4 times per year.  At our meetings, we jointly select a charity after hearing 3 charities tell us how they are working to improve our community.  After the presentations, a charity is selected.

Each member commits to donate $100 to the charity chosen that evening and we do that 4 times per year. If we have 100 women, that means $10,000 raised in just one hour for a local charity. In one year, $40,000.  At December 31, 2016, we have 176 members!  To June 6, 2017, we have raised $93,200!

If you want to help create change in our community but are stretched for time and want to make an immediate, direct and powerful impact, then please see our How It Works and FAQ pages to see how you can join this amazing group. Let’s do something great together in 2017!

The final charity to present at our September 12th meeting will be Dallas Valley Ranch Camp.

The mission of Dallas Valley Ranch Camp is to ignite and nourish a life transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, through a dynamic camp experience.

Each summer we have 2000 campers age 6-17 attend camp, with 60% coming from Regina and the other campers from the surrounding community and over 50 schools that use the facility for outdoor education. This year they sponsored 6% of campers who were unable to attend camp due to finances.

If chosen to receive the funding, they would like to add something new for thousands of kids to enjoy and create lifelong memories. Dallas Valley would like to build a Bonzai Barge, with a floating platform with trampolines, slide, rope swing, diving board and towers to jump off into the water.

For more information, please see their Facebook page Dallas Valley Ranch Camp and their website at
www.dallasvalley.com/100women . Good Luck!

The second charity to present at the September 12th meeting will be the Chris Knox Foundation.

The Charity’s mission is to facilitate opportunities for children and young adults to age 30 to attend sporting, culture and fine arts.

The Chris Knox Foundation serves young adults up to 30 years of age and currently in cancer treatment, remission or palliative care in the province of Saskatchewan.

If chosen to receive the funding, the donated funds would be used to purchase tickets for the above mentioned to attend sporting games and concerts with family.

For further information, see www.ChrisKnoxFoundation.ca and Chris Knox Foundation . Good Luck!

Our first charity to present at the September 12th meeting will be CNIB.

CNIB is a registered charity that changes what it is to be blind today by building independence, confidence, skills and opportunities in people who are blind and partially sighted so they can fully participate in life.

CNIB serves more than 2000 blind and partially sighted individuals in the Regina and surrounding areas.
Sixty-two per cent (62%) of Saskatchewan residents who are blind or partially sighted are unemployed and more than half of those individuals who are employed, live on incomes of less than $20,000 a year or less. CNIB aims to change this statistic by engaging youth with Vision Impairments in Regina and surrounding areas in a Youth Leadership Program that offers pre-employment skills, post-secondary school readiness training, peer mentoring, skill development and social interaction.

If chosen, the donated funds would be used for this Youth Leadership Program.

For more information, see their Facebook page and website at CNIB Saskatchewan and
