HOW: Helping One Woman …at a time

In a world filled with challenges, a remarkable organization called Helping One Woman (HOW) is proving that small acts of kindness can lead to significant impact. Founded in 2008 by Charlotte Bavaro and Brenda Critzer, HOW has grown from a single chapter to a widespread movement with numerous chapters across the United States. After attending a Girls Night Out Event in Goodyear, Becky was so impressed with the support and help it provided that she wanted to promote this notable organization that allows everyone to help out in a format that is accessible to practically everyone.

The Power of One Woman, Ten Women, and a Hundred Women

HOW’s motto is simple but profound: “One woman with $10.00 can buy another woman lunch. Ten women with $10.00 can buy another woman’s groceries. One hundred women with $10.00 can make a real difference in another woman’s life.” This motto exemplifies the organization’s mission to empower women one by one.

Restoring Hope in a Caring World

HOW envisions a world where everyone willingly offers comfort and support to those in need, especially during their most challenging times. Their mission is to support women facing devastating troubles and loss, knowing that helping one woman uplifts her family and ultimately benefits the community.

Monthly “Girls Night Out”

At the heart of HOW’s activities is the monthly “Girls Night Out” event. Each chapter selects a recipient from nominations submitted by attendees during the previous month’s dinner. Participants purchase their own meals and contribute a cash gift of $10.00 or more to support the recipient. However, it is the emotional and heartfelt support that truly makes a difference, providing healing and strength to those in need.
