When teachers at John F Ross, Jamie Gusba and Blake Martin, heard about Guelph’s “100 Men Who Give A Damn”, they felt called to action. The mission of “100 Men Who Give A Damn” is to bring people together to help support local charity organizations, so they can better serve our community.
The organization meets four times a year, and during the hour long meeting hear from 3 charities, then take a vote, and donate $100 each, directly to the chosen charity. Quick and easy! And to top it all off, the donation is tax deductible!
In 2018 alone, “100 Men Who Give A Damn”, collectively raised an official total of $53,800!! The four recipients included: Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis ($13,700), Wyndham House ($14,700), The Drop in Centre ($13,000) and The Shelldale Family Gateway ($12,400).
Meetings will continue to be at 7:15 with the Guelph Armoury’s door opening at 6:30 on Feb 12th, May 15th, Sep 11th and Nov 26th. Are you feeling inspired? Check out the website .
