There are at least 100 men who give a damn in this province and Sean Stack can prove it. Along with his brother-in-law, Dr. Jeff Power, Stack has started a group called 100 Men Who Give a Damn, which will donate money to charity.

Members from the group nominate a charity of their choice. A video interview is then conducted with a representative from that charity group and the videos are shown at a meeting and via social media. The group votes on which charity should benefit and when the charity is chosen, each member donates $100.

“That’s $10,000 approximately. So it’s a pretty strong impact, but it’s not a huge commitment from any one member,” says Stack.

The concept originally came from a women’s group that started in the U.S. Stack knew of a similar men’s group in Nova Scotia and then found out that there was a women’s group in this province called 100 Women Who Care.

“I just thought it was a good opportunity to get in on the ground level and start something that could benefit the community and that people could enjoy being a part of.”

The group held its first charity nomination meeting Monday night.

Anybody interested in joining the group can check out the website or email The plan is to give quarterly to an elected charity.
