100 Men’s First Year in Review
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our hosts, to all of our members, to all of the volunteers involved, and, most importantly, to all of the charities that we have had the pleasure of working with. Through the efforts of everyone involved, we were able to raise $65,550! Another damn big thank you from the members of 100 Men Who Give a Damn NL.
Take the time to check out the results of the past year’s meetings and feel free to visit each charity’s website for more information.
Held July 7th at the Capital Hotel on Kenmount Road, 100 Men’s inaugural meeting was a huge success, with three excellent charities being nominated. Ultimately, Young Adult Cancer Canada walked away with a cheque for $10,300 that they can use to benefit countless young lives across our country. Thank you to Steele Hotels for providing us with the venue.

That’s a Wrap!
We would love to build on the success of our first year by growing our membership and increasing the impact we have on the charities that are doing great work in our community.
100 Men Who Give a Damn is an organization with a simple structure and a simple mission: it’s entirely member-driven and its entire membership is driven by their desire to make positive change in their community. The model is simple, too; three members nominate one charity each, each charity is given the opportunity to present their organization at a meeting, members cast their ballots, and whichever charity receives the most votes gets a $100 donation from each member.
Everything we do is volunteered, donated or sponsored, which means every dollar raised goes directly to the charities we support. To find out how you can volunteer, donate or sponsor, contact us at [email protected].
