THANK YOU for attending our event in May
On Thursday, May 11, we had the best turnout of women yet, and we thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to help make a difference in the lives of women and girls less fortunate than ourselves.
The two organizations we presented and supported were Rayjon Share Care out of Sarnia, and TAWINA in sub-Saharan Africa. If you missed our meeting, the information about the two organizations can be found here.
It sure was a fun night. We were able to socialize with other women who share the same passion and connection for wanting to help women and girls get an education, become self sustaining and receive life-saving women’s healthcare. When we help women, they help their family and their community thrive. It’s a great feeling to know there is still good in the world, and a way to gather locally, to help contribute to make the lives of women and girls better.
We know that as Canadians, we’re fortunate to be born here. In other countries, not every girl, just because she is a girl, gets an education to better her life – we can change generations. Not everyone has access to safe drinking water – we can build a well. We can prevent a woman from dying with life-saving fistula surgery. Women and girls who are born into poverty stricken areas need our help.
We meet twice a year. In May, near Mother’s Day, and in October, near Thanksgiving. During these gatherings, we present two organizations. We research them very carefully. These are smaller, hands-on organizations that are run efficiently, have low overhead and are projects that our group (collectively) feels passionate about helping.
Women are capable of doing more together than any one of us could do alone.
We humbly thank you again for attending. If you’d like, please click here to sign up for our e-Newsletter to be notified when our meetings will take place, and for information about the results we are making worldwide.

Here’s how our WHW organization works
We have two gatherings per year. One in May (near Mother’s Day) and the other in October (near Thanksgiving). We present two carefully screened organizations or individuals at each meeting for you to learn about, advocate for, and donate to, if you choose. There are no obligations to give, and no membership fees. What you have with Women Helping Women are voices and choices.
There are also three options on how to participate:
- You can join like-minded women for dinner (anytime after 5 PM) at Country View Golf Course (they generously donate their conference room to our group)
- You can attend the presentation portion which begins after dinner (usually at 6:30 PM).
- You can review an online slideshow and donate through PayPal or credit card on our website.
