Congratulations to BabyGoRound

Winner BabyGoRound

Selected by 100WomenVan as the winning charity to receive a donation of $11,200 at tonight’s meeting at Steamworks Brew Pub in Gastown.

Stephanie Petersen, Operations Manager at BabyGoRound shared that the 100WomenVan donation would go towards their ‘Stroller & Crib Campaign’. And, we learned that receiving these costly and essential items gives young mothers the freedom to more easily engage in their community and feel less isolated.

BabyGoRound helps mothers access the essentials (equipment, clothing, and products) they need to ensure the well-being of their babies and young children. Through a network of social service professionals the stress of having a new baby can be alleviated by providing concrete resources to the families of those mothers who are struggling financially in the Lower Mainland.

Thanks to our other March 5th Presenters

How do Charities become involved with 100WomenVan?
Are you a local charity or non-profit in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland? Do you want to know how to get involved with 100 Women Who Care Vancouver? Well you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out how WE can help YOU.

We, the members of 100 Women Who Care Vancouver, are a passionate, engaged bunch.
Charities must be nominated by a member of 100 Women Who Care Vancouver to be considered, so take the time to connect with us online. Let our members know who you are, what services you provide to our community and generally why the organization you work for is the best around. You can find us on Facebook ; Twitter ; Instagram. The more we know about you, the more likely it is that you’ll be nominated.

Not sure if your organization meets the criteria for a nomination? We’ve got a handy list below.

In order to be eligible to present to our membership, nominated charities must meet the following criteria:

1) Must be a registered non-profit or charitable organization that’s eligible to provide a tax receipt for donations.
2) Must be established for at least one year (NO start-ups).
3) If a national or international charity, 100% of the money they would receive from us MUST go back into Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. It can be used to start a new initiative, but no funds are to be spent outside of Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. Organizations will be asked if this is possible when vetted, and if it is not, they will be removed from the nomination pool.
