Are you a Woman Who Cares?
How often do we hear people say, "I'd love to do something to help others but what can I do. I am just one person and i don't know where to start." Well here is that opportunity to help those in need in St Lucia.
100 Women Who Care is a group of women who care deeply about the St Lucia community. The group gathers four times a year for a one-hour meeting, and each member donates $100EC to a charity that the group selects. This combined donation of $10,000EC, once there are 100 members, makes a real impact, without time-consuming fundraising events and planning. Our mission and our hope is to provide for those in greatest need in St Lucia. We hope you will join us at our next meeting to see how easy and fun it is! There are over 170 Chapters in North America and Mexico with more being added everyday.
100 Women Who Care is for you if:
You don’t have time in your busy life to volunteer but have been wanting to help those in need, and you can commit to one hour every three months;
You are committed to helping others in the community;
Want to be a part of a powerful group of local women making an immediate, direct, and positive effect on the lives of our neighbours;
You are involved with other groups but are interested in meeting other women philanthropists in St Lucia;
Want to learn more about the many worthy community service programs and organizations serving St Lucia;
You want your $100 donation to become a part of a larger amount of money by joining together with other women—creating a powerful impact in our local area.
You wish for 100% of your contribution to go directly to local charities.

April winning charity The Blind Welfare
Cheque Presentation to World Paediatrics the October winner
I hope you will all agree that the last meeting on April 3rd, our third anniversary, was very special. The band from the Boy's Training Centre enlivened our mix and mingle and really showcased the difference our donations can make. Thank you to all our Founding members who were recognized with "Founding Member" pins.Trudy tells me she has been wearing hers and lots of people have asked about the organization. Please be an ambassador and wear yours with pride. if you were not able to attend the meeting you will be presented with your pin at the next meeting July 3rd. A cheque for $10,100 was presented at the meeting to GrowWell and will be used in their remedial reading programme. I have volunteered in the past in the programme and it still confounds me that there is so much need and so many children left behind. I am delighted we can help in this area. The winner this quarter was Blind Welfare. Apart from a moving presentation outlining the huge number of people whom the organization has helped over the years, it became a foregone conclusion as to which charity would win when Sue Allamby representing another nominated charity, Pawasol, stated though Pawasol needs money, the need at Blind Welfare was at this time dire as so much of their funding has been cut. She ceded the floor and urged members to vote for Blind Welfare. This was an extremely caring and generous gesture and I am sure Pawasol will be a winner again before too long. If you haven't yet made your donation and are able o do so please get your contribution to Mairi Low or Trudy Glasgow as quickly as possible. Blind Welfare was almost at the point of having to close its doors for lack of funds. They do tremendous good in the community so every $100 we raise will help.
Our next meeting: Tuesday April 11th 2017 @ 6.00 pm at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort, Conference Centre RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
