100 Women Who Care Meets Monday, April 22

By Susan Page

100 Women Who Care will hold its next meeting on Monday, April 22, at the Rosewood Hotel. This remarkable organization has already raised 182,420 pesos, about US$117,000, for nonprofit organizations that support impoverished rural communities around San Miguel de Allende. While we often meet on the second Monday of the month, we are meeting on April 22 this month to avoid Semana Santa.

Meeting
100 Women Who Care
Mon, Apr 22, 3:30–5pm
Rosewood Hotel Ballroom
Nemesio Diez 11
All women (and men) are welcome.
You may visit, or join at this meeting.

To join, simply attend the meeting!

How we raise the money

How does 100 Women Who Care raise all this money? Our process could not be simpler. We meet four times a year for one hour each time. Each woman (or team of two women) donates 1,000 pesos each meeting. The names of about 20 NGOs, which have been nominated by members, are placed in a hat. At each meeting, we draw three names. We hear a short presentation on each of the three, and then we vote. The winning organization receives the grant of 100,000 pesos or more. In recent meetings, we have been raising more like 120,000 pesos each time!

Can’t attend the meeting?

If you are not in San Miguel full-time, we still welcome you to join! You may join by signing the pledge form online at www.100womenwhocaresma.com or by attending a meeting.

If you know you will be absent for several meetings, you are welcome to leave your donation in our locked mailbox as far in advance as a full year, and we will divide your contribution and present 1,000 pesos per meeting for you. Leave your cash in a sealed envelope with your name and e-mail address clearly printed and address the envelope to 100 Women Who Care, Box 543, at the La Conexion location in the front of Paprika Restaurant on Ancha de San Antonio. We will acknowledge receipt of your contribution. Many members do this, and it works well. We are more than happy to accommodate you in this way and encourage you to consider it.

If you are a visitor, you are welcome to attend and make a one-time donation.

Men are invited

Men are welcome to attend meetings, contribute, and even become members. We don’t change the name of our group because we are loosely affiliated with similar groups in other cities, but we welcome the participation of men.

We invite everyone who cares to attend the meeting on Monday, April 22. We are grateful to the Rosewood for its admirable community spirit in donating the space for our meeting. Arrive at 3:30pm for no-host cocktails and a chance to mix and mingle. Joining (for new members) and signing in with your donation begins at 4:30pm. The meeting will begin promptly at 5pm and will end by 6pm. Even if you are not sure you want to join, you are invited to the meeting to see us in action.
