The Beginning The first 100 Women Who Care group was formed in November 2006 in Jackson, Michigan where Karen Dunigan learned there were mothers bringing their new born babies home with no cribs to sleep in and were often using cardboard boxes. As Karen began thinking about Center for Family Health’s need, she knew there had to be a way to quickly and easily meet the financial request that was presented. With all of her involvement in the community, Karen knew she could call ten people and ask them to write $1,000 checks, but she also figured she knew 100 women who would each give $100. She began making phone calls and scheduled a meeting. At that first meeting, in one hour, a group of Karen’s friends heard the story and each wrote checks to the Center for Family Health, resulting in a $12,800 donation, more than requested, to supply new mothers with the simplest need: a crib. Our story After learning about the 100 Women Who Care Alliance, six friends living from Walton to Santa Rosa County came together to introduce the concept to our area. Our first meeting was held in March of 2015 at Clemenza’s at Uptown Station due to their generous donation of a convenient location. Fifty ladies learned about and donated $2800 to the Arts and Design Society of FWB. Our story continues in what we hope will be a long and effective means for giving back to our amazing communities.
It's fast, simple, and amazingly effective!
