100 Heroes to be launched in Prince George

A new way to give back to the community is in the process of being launched.

The 100 Heroes initiative is aimed at people who want to help but are limited in time or money, Colin Breadner said in a press release.

He's looking for another 99 people to join him and pitch in $100 each, adding up to $10,000 and then find a charity to give the money to.

On that matter, they will put a list of nominated Prince George charities into a hat, and pull three of them out.

A small space will be rented out on a weeknight - Breadner will cover the cost - and each of the three charities will be invited to make a five-minute pitch.

The heroes vote anonymously for which one should receive the money and the charity that draws the most vote is handed the cheque.

"The great thing about '100 Heroes' is no one individual has to come up with $10,000 or more," Breadner said. "We take small donations and turn them into a big impact. This amount of money could transform a charity's entire year. "

The plan is to hold the event four times a year, "so before too long, this initiative will really make a difference."

A video Introduction has been posted at youtu.be/vyLE9LnCJas and the first event is set for Monday, April 29, at Trench Brewing and Distilling, 399 2nd Ave, 6:30 p.m. start
