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.

Thank you all for your continued support. If you did not make your donation last quarter could you please make it at the meeting in January ASAP by giving it to Trudy Glasgow, Mairi Low or donating on-line .
SLAPS Slaps made a presentation outlining how they used the funds donated the previous quarter. SLAPS has well over 100 dogs presently in their facility and volunteers feed another 100 at various parts of the Island. They have sent over 20 dogs to new homes in Canada this year. Feeding neutering and spaying, treating injuries etc are all part of the SLAPS programme and the money was used for these purposes. The winning charity lastquarter was Stepping Stones who were presented with a cheque for $8,400.00. They will present at the July meeting. The organization provided education tutoring, some counselling and a meal to very disadvantaged children aged 8 -16. The organization raises funds from family and friends and fundraisers such as bake sales. Our donation will make a huge difference to them.
