Meet 100 Women Who Care

By Susan Page

The nonprofit group 100 Women Who Care will hold its next meeting on Monday, July 15, at the Rosewood Hotel. This remarkable organization has already raised 2,291,570 pesos (about US$123,000) for San Miguel de Allende’s nonprofit organizations that support impoverished rural communities around San Miguel.

How We Raise the Money

full-house

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 that members nominate are placed in a hat. At each meeting, we draw three names. We hear a short presentation on each of the three organizations and then vote. The winning organization receives the grant of $100,000 pesos or more.

How to Join

We encourage you to join this heartwarming group of men and women. All you have to do is show up at a meeting, sign a pledge agreement, and then attend every meeting, if you are in town. We also invite guests, who are welcome to contribute 1,000 pesos as a one-time donation.

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, several meetings or even a full year in advance. We will divide your contribution up and present 1,000 pesos at each meeting for you. Leave your cash in a sealed envelope with your name and e-mail address clearly printed, addressed to 100 Women Who Care, Box 543, and leave it at the La Conexión location at the entrance to Paprika Restaurant on Ancha de San Antonio. 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.

Special to Men

Men are welcome to attend meetings, to contribute, and even to 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, July 15, at the Rosewood Hotel. We are grateful to the Rosewood for its admirable community spirit in donating the space for our meeting. You are invited to 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. We guarantee you will go away inspired and excited.
