  • Next Meeting for 100 Women Who Care in Santa Fe is Wed. Feb. 6th at Scottish Rite Temple from 6 – 7 pm. The organizers put the names of local nonprofits in a hat and draw out three then hears a short presentation from each, and then votes; to whichever receives the most votes, every attendee writes a check and raises over $10,000 in one hour. Sounds insane and actually works! Join as an individual for $100 each time, or as a group ($50 for a two-team or $25 for a four-team). But wait, it doesn’t end there: The second-place winner receives money from the members not in attendance (approximately $8,000), and the third-place winner receives money from business sponsors ($1,500).

  • Ken and Judy (KJ Farms) could use your help!

For the last 15 years, Ken and Judy have been selling eggs at the Farmers’ Market. Their last market was on January 26. While bills are piling up and every-day needs are harder to meet, their sudden loss of income makes things insurmountably difficult. The Market community is really strong and we can help! Please lend a hand if you can and give a donation. If everyone pitches in even just a little, we can immeasurably make a very hard time a little easier. Click here to donate.
