Gilda's Club Simcoe Muskoka was our first "Donation" Social, as they were the inspiration for A Ripple of Kindness.
Barbara and Mary-Anne had the intention of gathering a few of their friends together four times a year and donating to charities in the community. What started out as an idea, has "rippled" into a movement that neither of them expected. From the first meeting at Gilda's over coffee to the final count at the end of 2016, Gilda's Club received a total of $29,400 from the membership of A Ripple of Kindness.
"Gilda's Mission is to ensure that all people impacted by any cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. Because no cancer care plan is complete without emotional and social support, our innovation programs of networking and support groups, education workshops and social activities are provided FREE of charge."
A HUGE thank you to everyone for supporting A Ripple of Kindness.
