100 Men Who Give a Damn – NL
When Sean Stack and Dr. Jeff Power decided to bring together local men to make a difference in their community, their goal was simple: make a big difference.
“Seeing the success of groups like this in Halifax, and even locally with 100 Women Who Care St. John’s, had us confident we could do the same,” says Jeff, “and with our first meeting tonight we’re going to prove that.”
In just over a few months, the core team of Sean, Jeff, John Atkins, and William Cahill have taken 100 Men Who Give a Damn – NL from concept to reality, and they’ve already reached their first goal of having 100 members prior to their first meeting. Together, these men will meet every three months within the city. During each meeting, three members will each present a nominated charity, the group will vote, and the charity with the most votes will receive a cheque for $100 from each member on the spot.
“With 100 members for our first meeting, we’re already set to donate $10,000 to a local charity by the end of the night,” explains John, “and that’s just the beginning!”
“Although we’ve been working on this for some time, tonight truly marks the start of what we envisioned 100 Men Who Give a Damn – NL to be,” states Sean, “and we’re looking forward to finding out just how big a difference we can make when we come together to show that we give a damn.”
The next event is coming soon!
