Please join in
starting a local chapter of Dining for Women, a Giving Circle dedicated to
relieving the burden of extreme poverty for women around the world. We will
meet, eat, have fun and accept donations for worthy causes that support women
and children in developing countries.

What is Dining for Women? It's a
nationwide Giving Circle with monthly potluck dinner meetings. We "dine in"
together once a month, and the money we would have spent "dining out" is donated
to the organizations Dining for Women has researched and found to be viable
charities. We in turn empower the lives of women and their families around the
world. No contribution is too small.

The exciting concept of having
regular dinners with friends while changing the lives of impoverished women
worldwide is so compelling that we decided to start a chapter of Dining for
Women right here in RI!

One of the things that captivated our attention
was the Dining for Women mission that through education our members become
agents of change, capable of altering the face of world poverty one dinner at a
time!

By adding our donations to the donations of other Dining for Women
chapters across the country, we are harnessing the power of collective giving to
make a difference in the world. Bring something good to eat or drink and join
us!

Date : May 11, 2012
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: The DaVinci
Center, 470 Charles Street, Providence, 02904

We invite you to join us
for our first potluck dinner and meeting to learn about women around the world
who have the same cares and concerns we do, but don't have the same advantages.
It will be an evening of socializing with friends, meeting new women, and
learning about the charity of the month, Children of Vietnam.

What's so
wonderful about us collectively giving is that we individually donate each month
whatever is comfortable whether it's $5, $10, $30 or more. When the average
income of workers in developing nations is less than $2 per day, each dollar we
donate has a significant impact!

Women before our meeting? Check out their website at www.diningforwomen.org


So instead of us going out together for a glass of wine, for lunch or
dinner, let's pool our resources to make a difference for women in developing
countries around the world.
