Are you looking for ways to promote Rotary on your website, Facebook and Twitter?  One way to get Rotary’s message out to the masses is through video!  Short & effective videos can say more about Rotary in 60 seconds than an ordinary person could say in 15 minutes.  Videos are relevant and can make others think and act.  They are powerful tools and Rotary International want you to use them…for free!

Did you know that Rotary International has YouTube and Vimeo channels full of great videos…hundreds of them, covering just about every issue a Rotarian may be wondering about.

The Red Thread Promise is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to providing hope and healing to needy and orphaned children.

The Red Thread Promise (TRTP) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide life-changing medical procedures to special-needs orphans and needy children who have no funds with which to pay for these services. Our program exists to improve the quality of life for these children. We want to provide them with the treatment they need so that each child has the chance to live a life with dignity, health and hope.

The Red Thread Promise is an American organization with a global focus. We consider our humanitarian efforts to be an investment in world peace, building relationships between people of different countries, connecting strangers for the greater good of humanity. Through involvement in TRTP, it is our dream that people will value the lives of others as much as their own.

We believe that the well-being and health of children is a right, not merely a luxury for those who can afford it. It is for these little ones that we continue to advocate through our international medical programs and national hippotherapy program. We have concentrated our efforts in 3 global communities: China, Haiti and the United States.

There are numerous ways for volunteers and donors to get involved. Please visit our website to explore the possibilities.

Today’s Show is Dedicated to Patrick Struve

I want to dedicate this show to the memory of fellow Rotarian Pat Struve – a long time member of the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club – who past away recently.

Patrick had a passion for Rotary and loved to serve others. He was particularly interested in the fight to eradicate Polio throughout the world through Rotary vaccinations and supporting a children’s hospital in the Country of Haiti after the tragic earth quake in 2010. You can hear about that project in Episode 8 of Rotary Club Radio, which was recorded after Pat told me about the incredible work happening there.

Patrick’s service would have received his 8th Paul Harris Fellow Award (Paul Harris Fellow +7) the week before he died. Although Patrick was unable to receive the award at the meeting, it was a celebration of his ‘Service Above Self” lifestyle, generosity, and spirit of Rotary in action.

Rotary Club Project Spotlight

The St. Croix Falls Rotary Club is working with the Salvation Army and individuals from the community and the St. Croix Falls School District to create a hunger relief backpack program and on Friday, October 28 the St. Croix Falls School District officially kick off the Program.

This program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children when other resources are not available. Backpacks are filled with food, and students bring them home on weekends to help feed their families.

There is no fee charged to be in the program. Currently, over 68 backpacks are filled on Thursday afternoons and sent home with children the following day. 68 backpacks help feed 273 people.

The program is dependent upon donations. Here is how it breaks down: $7.50 will help feed a family for a weekend, $90 will help feed a family for three months, and $270 will help feed a family for the school year.

The Rotary Club of St. Croix Falls is raising money to provide milk, a much needed item, to the program. By setting up special vouchers with local grocery stores, families can redeem the vouchers for milk anywhere they are accepted. Milk is an important part of a child’s diet and at almost $4 a gallon, the Rotary Club of St. Croix Falls is working hard to raise the funds necessary to help out.

I look forward to bringing you updates on this program to see how things are going. If you community is like most communities, 1 out of 6 children go home on the weekends worried about what they are going to eat. Perhaps your club would be interested in creating a backpack program in your community.

Humanity in Motion



Rotary Minute

A special note that Thursday, June 23, 2011 is the installation of District 5960’s next District Governor, Judy Freund in beautiful Historic Hudson, Wisconsin. The celebration will include an evening of culture and Service Above Self!

Judy is a life-long educator who is committed to supporting international education in the schools. She received her bachelor’s degree in Broad Area Social Studies from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and her Masters in Curriculum and Doctorate in Education Leadership from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

In addition, Judy has served as president of the Hudson Daybreak Club in 2002-2003, is the co-chair of the Social Concerns Committee at St. Patrick’s Church in Hudson, and is active in local community sustainability efforts. The opportunity to serve as District Governor extends the interest in involvements that highlight service and the opportunity to make a difference.

Rotary Club Radio looks forward to having Governor Judy on with very soon, but for now I’d like to say welcome and congratulations on your new position in Rotary District 5960.

Featured Segment

Today on Rotary Club Radio, I want to talk about Fundraising.  Rotary Clubs love to provide service and opportunity to serve, but many times the projects that would best serve the community are costly.  Not just in time and effort, but many time in dollars.  Rotary Club’s around the world have found unique ways to raise funds to bring in the necessary financial support to complete the humanitarian projects that are so important in thousands of cites all over the world.

So the question is, How Does Your Club Raise Money?

Today I want to focus on a few clubs within District 5960 and what they are doing to raise funds for their clubs and give you an opportunity to 1. participate in the efforts and 2. share your unique fundraising ideas with Rotary Club Radio.

Roseville Rotary Club  – 4th Annual “Taste of Rose Fest”

Why:

As stated on their website: “This event is the backbone of our funding for all the good work Roseville Rotary does in this community and throughout the world,” said Roseville Rotary President Loren Anderson.

An example of some of the projects they’ve funded…

Ready! Set! Read! – an award-winning early childhood literacy program; Bridging; Roseville Area Senior Program; Rotary Woods in Central Park; STRIVE – a mentoring and scholarship program for high school seniors; Polio Plus – Rotary’s worldwide effort to eradicate polio; Kids Voting; Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts; NW Youth & Family Services; school, hospital and water projects in Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Haiti; Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly; and many more.

This event is schedule for Thursday evening, June 30, 2011, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

There will be 27 food tasting and wine stations from approximately 20 area businesses will be located at the Central Park Arboretum and Rotary Woods at the Dale Street park entrance between County Roads C and B2.

It is a unique opportunity for discriminating diners to sample and compare some of the finest food dishes and wines local area restaurants have to offer.

When that happens everybody wins. Please join us.

Described as an upscale “ticketed” wine and food sampling event with entertainment and silent auction. Opportunities for restaurateurs to tempt new customers. Opportunities for sponsors to exhibit community pride and gain exposure. Last year we served more than 650 attendees.

Summary

The goal of Rotary is give take our support, time and talents and put them back into our community.  Help us make a difference and have lots of fun doing it.  I see this as a great way to both raise funds and connect with the community in a meaningful way.  Great Job!  Congratulations to the Roseville Rotary Club on creating this an amazing event and I hope that if you’re in the district, you’ll go to www.tasteofrosefest.org and find out more.

St. Croix Falls, Hudson Day Break, and St. Croix Rotaract Club Car Raffle

The 2011 Rotary Raffle, which features a 2011 Ford Mustang or $15,000 in cash as the Grand Prize and a Fox 50 Scooter as the 2nd prize, is a collaborative effort between 3 clubs.  The car and scooter are transported to different events around the area – county fairs, parades, festivals, carnivals, etc. and tickets are sold up until a the drawing which will be held at the Wings and Wheels Festival on September 11, 2011 at 4pm at Mill Pond Park in Oseola, WI

Sometimes it can be tough collaborating with multiple clubs, but if your club can do it, there are great opportunities for successful fundraising.

Now both the Roseville Rotary Club and the St. Croix Falls/Hudson Daybreak Rotary Club took the time to explain why they are raising funds and how to get involved.

If you’d like to purchase a ticket for this Raffle, you can contact someone from the St. Croix Falls, Hudson Day Break, or St. Croix Rotaract Clubs or go to scfRotary.org for more information.

If your Rotary Club has a fundraising idea or a successful fundraiser you’d like to share or if you would like to use Rotary Club Radio as a way to promote your fundraiser to District 5960 and all the listeners around the world, go to RotaryClubRaido.com and click “Submit a Story” to tell us about it.

On April 27, 2011, around 200 tornado’s blew across the southern portion of the United States. These storms raged across 6 states killing over 300 people.

Tuscaloosa, AL, home of 2 Rotary Clubs, had about 1/7 of their city destroyed by the EF5 tornado that ripped a 6 mile path of destruction through its streets.  The tornado is estimated to be have been up to 1 mile wide at times and had sustained winds of over 200 mph.

Note: According to The Chronicle:

  • About 350 people have been confirmed dead across the country as a result of tornado activity last week.
  • Authorities are still sifting through the rubble after an 80 mile (129km) long, 1.5 mile (2.4km) tornado tore through Tuscaloosa — the worst hit location.
  • About 5000 structures have been damaged and 13,000 people affected in a city with a population of 98,000.

With only about 24 minutes notice, the population of Tuscaloosa had little time to prepare for the tornado and once it was over, they were left with over 5,000 structures (homes, businesses, and buildings) destroyed, 41 deaths, with 60 people still missing.

According to today’s guest, the Tuscaloosa Red Cross and Salvation Army Headquarters were destroyed as well as the Boys and Girls club.

Here is the video of the Arial view of the damage!

Donate to Shelter BoxFor today’s Rotary Club Minute, I want to turn our eyes, ears, and hearts to Rotarian’s in the country of Japan and their entire population; as well as Shelter Box International, who responded quickly to the awful situation.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, an earthquake measuring 8.9 shook the island of Japan on March 11, 2011.  This event on its own would have been bad enough, but the earthquake triggered a massive tsunami that devastated the coastal cities.

Reports, videos, and pictures from Japan show cars, boats, and building complete destroyed and carried away with waves 10 meters high.  To put this into perspective, the earthquake was reportedly 8,000 times stronger than the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand last month.

Shelter Box sent a (SRT) ShelterBox Response Team of three members to deliver the emergency disaster relief boxes to the people of Japan.  Currently, tens of thousands remain missing and feared dead and nearing a 1/2 million are left homeless, either because of the earthquake, tsunami, or evacuations resulting from the nuclear power plants damaged in the quake’s aftermath.

On March 15th, the first shipments of ShelterBoxes have finally arrived.  With emergency shelters completely overrun by the displaced, the SRT team will face the challenges of distributing the supplies in frigid temperatures, regular snowfall, a lack of food and water, and hundreds of thousands of desperate people seeking your help.

For today’s Rotary Club Minute, I want to ask you to take a moment to open up your wallets and give a donation to support the efforts of Shelter Box in Japan.  I’ve asked my local Rotary Club, the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club, to accept the donations via their secured link.  Once we get enough donations for a box, we will send the donations to Shelter Box from the listeners of Rotary Club Radio.  Click the image below to donate now.

Featured Segment

Episode: #11 – Greg Hill – Rotary Club of Topeka, KS (Downtown) – Marketing & Technology in Rotary.

In this episode, I’m interviewing Greg Hill, the Public Relations/Media Relations Chair of the Rotary Club of Topeka, KS. Vocationally, Greg is the Assistant Executive Director of the Kansas Dental Association and he uses technology everyday to tell others about what new for dentists ~ so why not do the same to tell others about Rotary?
I ran across Greg on Twitter when I saw a post inviting others to watch his Rotary Club live on the internet. Using the power of “Free Technology,” Greg is getting the message of Rotary out to others and making a difference for Rotary.
Here is a video clip of Greg talking about what Dentist are doing in Kansas to provide free dental care to people who can’t afford to go to the dentist themselves.

Greg shares with me how he uses social media tools like: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Ustream to educate others about Rotary Club. He talks about the digital newsletter that he helps produce for the Topeka Rotary Club, that eliminated thousands of dollars in printing and mailing costs each year.

The newsletter is online and easy to read like a paper version, but with this new technology he is able to add multi-media effects like audio and video to enhance the reader’s experience.

Consider your club and how they can tackle the technology and marketing issues without all the stress. I hope you enjoy the show!
