Greater Moncton’s 100 Men Who Care group welcomes new members

Men

100 Men Who Care of Greater Moncton is calling on all willing and able men to join their movement and attend their upcoming inaugural meeting. The men’s charitable group provides funds to deserving non-profit organizations in the local community.

The charity organization involves 100+ men who will each bring a blank $100 cheque to a group meeting four times per year. Three different local charities will present during each meeting, one will be selected as the recipient, and that charity will then walk away with a total donation of $10,000+. Each member’s $400 annual commitment translates into $40,000+ for four local charities. One hundred per cent of all donations go directly to the awarded charity and all donations are tax deductible.

The initiative, under the leadership of Troy Akerley and David Hawkins, was inspired by the newly launched local chapter of 100 Women Who Care of Greater Moncton.

“Many local charities are facing critical challenges today,” Mr. Hawkins said. “The demands on these charitable organizations often go far beyond the resources they have available to support those in the community that need it the most. With a small commitment of time and resources, this group of men can significantly help local charities do their work and positively impact the community.”

Interested individuals should visit www.100menmoncton.com to learn about and join the group.  The first quarterly meeting of 100 Men Who Care of Greater Moncton will be hosted by the Ramada Crystal Palace Convention Centre in Dieppe on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at 5:30 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. for meet and greet.

“100 Men Who Care of Greater Moncton is not your typical fundraising organization,” Mr. Akerley explained. “It doesn’t have a board of directors or officers, no chairman or president, no secretary or treasurer. It’s made up of a few guys who came together to volunteer their time and offer a fun and innovative venue to facilitate fundraising within the community. Every dollar donated goes directly to the selected charity. It can’t get any simpler than that!”

This Greater Moncton group is the latest addition to the 100 Men and 100 Women Who Care movements that have seen chapters sprouting up in many cities in North America over the last 10 years.
