100 Women Started It
The first 100 Women Who Care group was formed in November 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, USA. At their first one-hour meeting, the Jackson 100 Women Who Care group raised $10,000 to buy 300 new baby cribs for an organization in their city. Their membership has now grown to nearly 300 members.
The first 100 Women Who Care group in Canada was founded in March 2012 by Torontonian Jennifer Wootton Regan who was immediately drawn to the idea after reading about the many 100 Women Who Care groups that have sprung up in the United States since that first one in Jackson, Michigan in 2006.
Since then, many 100s groups have started in Canada, some of which are shown below.
We're proud to now be part of this movement!
