About 100 Guys
"In February of this year my best friend and I started '100 Guys Who Care' in Brantford. In the three meetings since we started we have raised over $20,000 for local charities. Big Brothers & Big Sisters, a local refugee family who recently migrated from Syria, and a local retirement homes Alzheimers Patient Care Unit. The number of generous 'guys' in our community is really amazing."- Cody Novak
About Cody Novak
"I owe Toastmasters for the confidence it took to start '100 Guys Who Care' and many other milestones in my life. I have been a Toastmaster for 7 years and will be a life long advocate because of how much it has helped me. Another project I am working on is sending out a positive 2 minute video on Facebook every week. This has also taken a lot of courage for me - which I attribute to getting out of my comfort zone every single week at toastmasters."
