About Us

What is Ripple of Kindness?
The Ripple of Kindness (ROK) is an opportunity for Orillia and area women to support local chapters of charities through collective giving.
What is required of members?
ROK Orillia members would be asked to donate $200 each, twice per year. Members also have the opportunity to nominate a charity for which they are passionate
When do we meet?
Rather than meetings, there will be four “socials” per year.  Members and their guests join other inspiring women at different venues throughout the area – no formal minutes are taken or recorded. Attendees can network with new people and learn about important charitable enterprises and initiatives.  Light food and beverages such as wine & cheese will be served at each social.  Sponsorship opportunities are available.
How can I learn more about Ripple of Kindness Orillia?
Join us at our inaugural social event to learn more:  Wednesday February 27th at 6:00 pm at the Orillia Museum of Art & History, 30 Peter Street South. Please Register with the link below.
