FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Grassroots Crowdfunding for Edmonton and Area Charities
Edmonton, AB – We are excited to introduce 100 People Who Care, an Edmonton giving group connecting individuals to make a significant, collective impact on our local community.
Based on an established model that has seen millions of dollars transfer directly from donor to charity across Canada and the U.S., 100 People Who Care is the first giving group of its kind in the Edmonton area.
The concept is simple: 100 People Who Care members come together four times each year to donate up to $10,000 per meeting to Edmonton and area charities. At each meeting, three local charities or non-profits are presented for consideration and voted on by members. The charity with the most votes receives up to 100 cheques for $100. This is an amount that can make a significant impact to local charities focused on making a difference in our community.
On July 29, 2014, 100 People Who Care will hold our first meeting. With a growing member base, we invite the public and the media to attend and learn more about our grassroots crowdfunding initiative; our mission; and how we intend to provide significant financial support for the changemakers in our local community.
Meeting Location: Expressionz Café, 9942-74 Avenue, Edmonton, AB
Meeting Time: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm (6:00 pm, doors open for registration)
