DINING FOR WOMEN ~ CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE WOMAN, ONE GIRL, ONE DINNER AT A TIME WWO40 members Jane and Virginia are excited to create a brand new chapter of Dining For Women (DFW) for our Wise Women Over 40 (WW040) members to participate in! DFW is a global giving circle that celebrates the power of the individual and promotes gender equality in developing countries. Acting on changing injustice through funds raised from grassroots projects, DFW members are deeply involved in the grantees they support and the problems they seek to address. (Scroll down for more info & website of DFW) What: We will meet on a regular basis to share a meal (potluck) and camaraderie and learn about that the month's featured grantees through viewing videos, educational documents, presentations, and free open discussion. The education component is equally as important as our fundraising. The average donation is $35 – just about the amount you might spend for a weeknight dinner out. When: This monthly event will meet the 1st Tuesday of each month. Where: Address will be sent out privately to the rsvps. Please let Jane or Virginia know if you would like to offer your home or private space for one of these monthly dinners. Parking: TBA https://diningforwomen.org Although, DFW has invested more than $6 million in grants and partnerships since its inception in 2003, their members are generally not wealthy. Small donations raised each month fund the featured and sustained grantees, as well as support the entire DFW mission: Changing the World ~ One woman, One girl, One dinner at a time. This collective-giving model is proving that small contributions, aggregated together, can make a huge difference. This is especially true in the most impoverished areas of the world, where some subsist on less than $1.25 a day. Bring: This is a free event, with the intention that members will support these worthy causes with small donations. This is a potluck, so bring a dish to share. (If you would be interested in trying the local fare of the area of the featured organization, each month the DWF website will offer recipes for local dishes.) The host will provide dinnerware and soft drinks. Feel free to bring wine or other drinks to accompany dinner. For donations, the easiest form is check, but credit cards can be accommodated, as well. Please avoid cash, if possible. You may bring a guest. Minimum number of attendees needed each month: 3 Hosts/Questions/Info: Primary: Jane[masked], [masked] Co-host: Virginia:[masked]
