This year, Board Treasurer Mari Partyka shared her yearly first 100 days project with the world in the form of a blog post and list - Wildflowers: a 100 Day Project. We loved the idea so much (as did some of our board members, who created their own!) that we decided to make our own.

Setting personal goals and setting goals for an entire organization are pretty different, and the latter can be quite tricky. We wanted to set the bar high, but not so unreasonable that we felt overwhelmed. We considered what we had going on, what we could provide for our women in the first hundred days of this year, and what would be the best improvements within our organization to achieve those goals. 

We're excited to share our list with you! 

 

Our #Wildflowers100 List:

~ Host 100 runners for #RunNowWineLater in February
~ Invest that $2,000 into our cooperative in Nepal, where our women will hand craft reusable sanitary pads for hundreds in their villages
~ Reunite the Mahila team in Washington, DC in February to plan the next few years of growth
~ Publish our 2016 Annual Report featuring successes and lessons learned
~ Raise our Instagram followers to 500
~ Connect with at least 3 grassroots organizations traveling a similar path to share stories and create relationships
~ Introduce our audience to our amazing team and add 1-2 more team members
~ Produce a Mahila Partnership video that epitomizes what we're passionate about

We have so much going on in the first half of 2017, and we're excited to embark on these endeavors. Keep up to date on our #Wildflowers100 plan on Instagram via the hashtag, where you'll also see others who have created their own plan.
