Inaugural meeting of 100 Men Who Give a Damn Raises $7200 for YWCA Crisis Shelter

The inaugural meeting of 100 Men Who Give a Damn - Saskatoon went off without a hitch last Monday evening at Fionn McCool’s. The group launched successfully with 72 members, all having committed to the concept of donating $100 each to a local charity selected by the group, once each quarter.


The group heard presentations from three very important local charities. Representatives from AIDS Saskatoon, The Bridge, and the YWCA Crisis Shelterall told powerful and touching stories of the needs that their organizations are striving to meet in the Saskatoon community. In the end, the group voted and $7200 was given to the YWCA Crisis Shelter.


100 Men Who Give a Damn defines the group's mission like this.

"We are simply a group of men that want to make a positive impact on local charities in Saskatoon.  By coming together we know that we can change small individual contributions into a very large one that will make a powerful difference. Every three months we will get together to hear about the great work three local charities are undertaking, and then we'll choose one. Our mandate is 100+ men donating $100 per meeting – that can be $10,000 or more to one charity per quarter! That is powerful."
