As I go about my Club visits, I am delighted to report that the support for Helen's partner project of End Polio Now has been fantastic and a real credit to the commitment of our members in this District to support the End Polio initiative.
As I stress to Clubs, any contributions to the Fund in the name of her project have to be over and above what the Club was already committing. The idea behind the partner project was to raise funds specifically for that project.
So since my last update we've received contributions from the following Clubs:
The Rotary Clubs of Beaumaris, Boronia, Oakleigh Clayton Huntingdale, Warrandyte Donvale, Waverley, Maroondah, Hampton, Monash and Surry Hills, and Manningham City. Just a reminder that club contributions to Helen's project are till included as part of a Club's total annual contribution.
A reminder that if you would like to make a personal, tax deductible donation, please go here. Your donation will be credited against you, as a Rotarian and your Club. Just make sure that the email address you use, matches the address in MyRotary.
Donations from non-Rotarians are, of course, also welcome and can also be made through this portal.
If you are representing a club, please make the contribution by the normal channels but flag it as DG Project and drop DG Ian or Helen an email. Banking details for Clubs can be found here.
As of mid September, her project has received from Rotary members, Rotary Clubs and some non Rotarians a total of AUS$15,260.
Thank you.
