Week 2 Update – 100 Men Who Give a Damn!

September 19, 2014

Well, it’s official: Two weeks after launching our initiative the entire 100 Men YEG team is blown away. We already have 85 people who have committed to each providing $100 per quarter to Edmonton based charities!

We had high hopes. Edmonton is a generous town, and we were pretty sure this was a good idea. But would enough people put their hard-earned money up to make a big impact? Well, you did. And from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We’re going to make it to 100 members before our first event on October 15th. But that begs the question: why stop at 100?

We don’t think we have to stop. In fact, with you help, we’d like to change our goal from giving $10,000 each quarter straight to an Edmonton based charity to $15,000 per quarter!

Please help us make an even bigger impact on Edmonton charities and our neighbours and communities. Think about your friends, family, hockey buddies – hell, even your knitting club members – if they can answer yes to these points, send them an invite to join us:

– You are committed to helping others
– You want 100% of your donations to go to an Edmonton charity
– You want to be part of a group having an immediate, direct, and positive effect on the lives of our neighbours
– You want to learn more about organizations and community service programs serving the Edmonton area.

Please pass on this email to those who may want to join the 100 Men YEG cause.

Date: Wednesday, October 15th
Where: Edmonton Petroleum Club
When: 5:30pm – 7:30 pm
