These are some of the headlines from recent articles about charitable endeavors around the world I’ve seen.  The lengths people will go to, to raise money for their charity of choice.  BUT


Do you really want to get naked, or shave your head, or run through mud to raise money for what you are passionate about?  Or, would you prefer to have a good meal, a drink, and some fun while taking four hours and $400 of your time and money annually to support charitable efforts of the needy right in your own community?  From fighting illness, to homelessness, eliminating human, animal and drug abuse to education – all noble enterprises that make our community a better place to live.


If 100 of us in the New River Valley come together, that $400 quickly turns into $40,000. At our recent kickoff meeting on April 19, 2016 – we gained momentum.  We have 46 committed women who donated close to $5,000 in 1 hour.  Wouldn’t it feel great to give that and more away each and every quarter; to be a part of helping those in our community, where we can see our contributions making a difference?

I’m looking for a few good women here in the New River Valley to join me in the fight to eradicate all the need in our community.  Together, we can do it!  Check out our website ( and complete a commitment form today.
