The Quest for Men who Give A Damn!
Wow, has it really only been a month since our first blog post?
It feels as though it has been so much longer! So much has happened and we have made such progress since we first introduced ourselves.
The biggest development has to be that our website went ‘live’ and we have started the drive to build our membership. We are thrilled with how the website www.100mennl.ca looks and we have to thank JAC » We Create for all the time they have donated to working on this and the branding.
The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive and while we are not yet at 100 members we are striving to have even more than 100 members by the time of our first meeting on July 7th (at The Capital Hotel on Kenmount Rd. – www.steelehotels.com has generously donated the meeting space). The more members we have the greater an impact we can have on the charities that are doing great work in our community.
Sean Stack, Jeff Power, and John Atkins attended the most recent meeting for the ladies group 100 Women Who Care St. John’s where they selected the St. John’s Women’s Centre as the recipient of their latest big donation. The ladies were very welcoming and gave us the opportunity to introduce ourselves; we then laid down the gauntlet and challenged them to see who can raise the most funds going forward.
Speedpro Signs has also come on board as a sponsor in the last month and they have been fantastic in agreeing to donate pop-up banners and other printed material, including a big novelty cheque for when we make our big donations!
The next event is coming soon!
