12 Caring Women April 30, 2012 – Posted by bjames306
One year ago twelve friends got together and formed a group. We call ourselves “12 Caring Women".

We meet once a month and take turns hosting the event. We each donate $20 except the hostess who donates $25 so we have $250 each month for a worthy cause.

When we meet we discuss needs in the community and decide on a worthwhile cause. One month we donated to a single lady who was attempting to get a baby to the U.S. from Haiti after the earthquake.

Over the past year we have helped many people in dire need. We work with the local Social Services organization as well as the guidance counselor at a local school to find people in need. If we don’t have a pressing need one month we give the money to the chaplain at the local free clinic.

While we have helped many people we feel we have benefited much more from giving. I’m writing this in hopes that it might spur others to begin a similar group.
