Welcome to the 100 Women Who Give a Hoot - CHD Chapter!

Dear Hoot Members and Supporters, 

 

Our greatest hope at the moment is that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. We have a wonderfully diverse group of women in this Hoot family of ours and we know COVID-19 is impacting us all a little differently. We also know that everyone in our community is having to adjust in so many ways during this unprecedented time.

 

We're hearing story after story about how this virus is impacting our Global community; stories closer to home make it more real. There is goodness out there. There's also the hard truth in this new reality for so many - those on the frontline, the nonprofits who are halting operations temporarily, our neighbors who must decide between paying for food for their family or the roof over their heads, small businesses fighting to stay afloat, our elderly, our sick, our young who don't understand.

 

Being friends on Facebook with so many of you, I'm inspired every. single. day. Y'all have such big hearts and love for our community and you exemplify not only what it means to be a woman who gives a hoot but you embody hope. Your actions, your donations, and your words make a difference!!

 

So many of our local businesses, nonprofits, and families need you more than ever right now, so we encourage you to do what you can – and then please tell us all about it! Post to our FacebookTwitter, or Instagram. Giving a Hoot means more than donating financially, so we hope you will share posts of ways we can all support our community, as well as ways Hoot members can support each other

 

Stay healthy and safe,

Tina & your Women Who Give a Hoot Leadership Team

 


 

Here's an update from our Q'1 2020 Award Recipient, Boomerang Youth:


“Thanks for following up ... we are doing good just trying to stay healthy at this point ... I'm proud of him as well for working very hard and doing what he has to do to stay on track at school.” 

 

These words from a parent warmed our hearts. More so because many of the young people we serve have vulnerabilities that make navigating these extraordinary times so much more challenging: the absence of structure, supervision, access to regular meals, social outlets, academic support and even the therapeutic services they receive in school.

 

Through emails, phone calls and texts, Boomerang has continued to provide support to our students since schools closed. And while we planned on re-opening (in person!) to students on April 6th, this looks increasingly unlikely so we are committed to finding new, creative ways to staying connected with our students and guiding them as they navigate uncharted waters.

 

Boomerang’s planned fundraising supporting our summer follow up and enrichment understandably has to be postponed. This will impact our ability to provide much needed services but we are always hopeful that things will turn around and our kids will get the support they deserve!

 

Hoot Members, if haven’t already and able to please submit your quarterly donation (there is an option to pay what you can) commitment today. Every donation counts! All donations will go directly to our Boomerang Youth that needs our support more than ever. 

 

 

 


More about our Q'1 2020 big award winner - Boomerang Youth,

Boomerang Youth works directly with middle and high schoolers in Orange County. Their mission is to inspire youth to bounce back from challenges and move towards positive change. Boomerang aims to reduce the opportunity gap that too many vulnerable kids face in our community by providing supportive services that help students stay engaged in school and navigate life. Last night, they told us about their STRIVE strengths-based program that focuses on personal accountability, development of self and a goal-based re-entry plan for students return to school.

It's About the power of collective giving!!!

When you donate $100 to a charity, often you wonder if you are making a difference? But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 to support a worthy cause. That’s REAL impact. And it takes only an hour, once a quarter!

 

No additional fundraising, no silent auction donations to solicit, no volunteering (unless that’s your thing!). Simply a great way to give back your own local community.

         

Let's not forget about all the new people you can meet and network with across our local area! 
We have a blast at our events - make it a quick night to vote on our favorite charity or stick around to share some eats and drink with our 100 Women!
