Posted at 10:18h
Just before the holidays, 100s of Women Who Care Lincoln, presented The Junior League of Lincoln with $10,000.00 for the JLL Diaper Bank. With the donation, over 17,000 diapers will be donated to families throughout our community. Soon, 100s will present another $10,000.00 to the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Thank you to our sponsors for making this happen!

100s of Women Who Care Lincoln Mission:
Simple Concept–Members commit to meet once each quarter for a 90 minute “happy hour” event, with complimentary food, drink and FUN underwritten by sponsors. At the end of each meeting, each member writes one $100 check directly to one local charity selected that night, for a total of $400 per year. We think these will be Thursdays, 5:30 to 7 p.m. and we already have several varied location ideas and willing sponsors.
Big Impact—The more members, the bigger the impact. With 200 members we raise $20,000 per night. With 300 members it is $30,000, etc. At each event, each member has the option to nominate one local 501(c)(3) organization that could greatly benefit from a one-time infusion of those combined support dollars. All funds must be used 100% in the Lincoln area to be eligible. At each event, three of these nominated organizations are selected randomly for 3-minute presentations by the nominating member on “why the group should support that organization’s project.” Members will vote on the organization most deserving of the support, and at the end of the event we each write our $100 check directly to the chosen organization that we have together chosen to support—thereby making a targeted Big Impact. The combined donations go 100% to the local charity—nothing will go to operations or administration.
