The Winner Is Sweet Julia Grace Foundation!

The winner of our 2nd quarter donation is the Sweet Julia Grace Foundation! This is a very local charity with a simple mission: to fill in the gaps, grant wishes, and meet the non-medical needs of children that are seriously ill, have special needs, or are in the midst of a medical crisis. We are thrilled with the choice the members made! It is not too late to help us raise money for this amazing cause. Do you have $100 you can spare, or can you join with a friend to donate $100 together? Send us a message!

Some other updates from last night’s meeting:

Last quarter we donated to Mission Sleep, a charity which provides overnight newborn care to military and first-responder families.  Founder Denise Stern wrote, “So basically, and this is not an overstatement, the 100 Women Who Care brought Mission Sleep back to life.”  She goes on to state that the charity had been squeaking by on small donations, helping 1 or 2 moms a month, but now they are growing leaps and bounds.  They have extended their care to single-mom vets, and are partnering with Inova Health Services to make Mission Sleep care a standard practice for NOVA police families.  They are currently assisting an active duty mom due with twins and a single active duty mom who feared she would have to “Uber” home from the hospital, among others.  Our donation has been transformative!

The 100+ Alliance recently shared some great stats. As of April 21, they counted 490 chapters of 100 worldwide, with another 180 in some stage of development.  Chapter leaders were asked to state how much money they have raised for charity to-date.  With only 146 chapters (we were one of them!) reporting, $16,638,000 has been raised.  Imagine the actual total!  This is the power of 100!
