A LITTLE HISTORY
The first 100 Women Who Care chapter was founded in 2006 by Karen Dunigan in Jackson, MI.  Since
then, other chapters have been launched all over the US and in other countries as well.
The Naperville chapter--founded by Palma Aikins--began in February, 2009 with 29 members.  The
goal was to reach a membership of 100, which was reached and surpassed in the spring
of 2013.  Today the membership numbers over 140--more than four times what it was at that first meeting in 2009.  
Since we first met in 2009, we have donated $285,900 to the following organizations:
