Well, it was one for the memory books to be sure. We were unable to meet at Birmingham’s because of the COVID-19 situation. We wish the best of luck to all of the businesses affected by this global pandemic and it’s going to be a heck of a get together at Birmingham’s when the situation allows.
We had three fantastic groups to consider again this time – and would like to announce an incredibly close decision that was tallied by electronic votes, and congratulate REACH Regina on being the charity chosen to receive this round of donations.
The 100 Men Who Care members will be honouring their pledges through electronic donation, and if you’d like to donate, you can support this local group as they work to support childhood nutrition in the city during this tenuous time.
If you’d like to donate you can hit them up here: https://www.reachinregina.ca/help-us/donate
If you’d like to support our runner up charities, they would welcome your support as well:
Thank you to everyone who participated – your flexibility and willingness to help in these unusual times is appreciated.
Stay safe and sane and socially responsible – and we’ll hopefully see you in person next quarter!!

It was another great night at Birmingham’s, with three amazing charities sharing their stories with the group of Regina Men Who Care. With some new faces in the crowd and a growing number of members, the representatives from these three wonderful organizations shared their stories. We got to hear about the creation and growth of Hope’s Home and their incredible work helping medically fragile children and their families. We got an inspiring and informative look at the Special Olympics Saskatchewan and how this organization is helping build stronger communities through participation, education and sport. Our final presentation – and the recipient of the evening’s group donation – was the Shine On Foundation, a growing local charity that helps families dealing with the devastating fallout of a cancer diagnosis build lasting memories together through once in a lifetime experiences.
It was such an inspiring night and a great opportunity to meet the people in our community who drive these critical organizations – as well as a fun night of networking and camaraderie for the Men Who Care.
We hope you will consider joining us next time, as the more members we have, the more financial support we can give these fantastic community groups. See you in March?

We were also joined by Sofia House, the recipient of September 10th’s group donation. They came by to give us an update on how the funds had been used. It was great to hear they had put our donation to good use!!

It was a dreary September night, but a hearty crowd still gathered to learn about SOFIA House and The Salthaven Sanctuary.
Thank you so much to both organizations for coming out and teaching us about the important work you do. It’s amazing to meet some of the people who make organizations like yours work to deliver the important programs you offer.
The 100 Men Who Care Regina group voted to direct the proceeds of our September 10th, 2019 meeting to SOFIA House, and hope they can make use of the funds we were able to provide them.
It was another fun night at Birmingham’s, getting to network with like-minded people while learning about the amazing Salthaven Animal Sanctuary and their tireless work to support injured and sick wild animals.
Both of these organizations are always looking for donations and volunteer support, so please check their websites out to learn more about how you can help them.
