ROTARY GOOD NEWS

Posted by Don Vandello on Apr 02, 2012

Good News!  It’s Rotary Day!

 

Bad news seems to heavily outweigh good news every day.  Pick up the paper, listen to radio or television, go on line, or however you are used to getting your news, and it seems like there are always more terrible things happening in the world then good things.  “If it bleeds, it leads” is an old news axiom.  Murders, wars, corruption, unemployment, poverty, ill health, foreclosures…the list goes on and on and on.

 

It can be pretty depressing and pretty discouraging.

 

But go to a Rotary meeting. You will hear of good things being done by ordinary people every day.

Ever since I wrote my book, Knowing and Loving: The Keys to Real Happiness, I have spoken to 24 Rotary Clubs in Southeast Wisconsin and Northeast Illinois.  My presentation is titled: Knowing and Loving: The Keys to Real Happiness  At the Core of “Service Above Self” and the “The Four Way Test.”

One of the unexpected and best parts of attending the Rotary meetings is to hear of the broad range of service projects the Rotary Clubs and their members are engaged in on a local, national, and international level.  The motto of Rotary is “Service Above Self.”  Projects range from working with developmentally disabled, supporting students with scholarships, raising money for food pantries, providing a safer environment and recreational opportunities for low-income children, helping build a water system in Africa, etc.. The Rotarians are always doing something which is positive and is making a contribution to the well-being of individuals and their communities.

Good News, indeed!

And what is really good news is that this is happening thousands of times a week around the world at each of the thousands of Rotary Clubs internationally.

It always reminds me of the day of the Columbine shootings a number of years ago.  It was a terrible event and people were properly shocked and upset by it.  But on that day of the shootings, I was meeting with a Board of a neighborhood service center in Milwaukee.  We were a group of business, community, governmental, educational, and social service providers working to bring together resources to provide opportunities for people in the neighborhood to improve their own well-being as well as those of their family and in their neighborhood.

We were just one of hundreds if not thousands of community groups around the country that day having such a meeting and working together to improve the lives of many people.  No news organizations covered our meeting.  There were no stories in the paper recognizing all of the good things being done that day by people everywhere. 

The other unexpected good news at a Rotary Club meeting is a portion of the meeting they call “Happy Dollars.”  Anyone who has some good news to share makes an announcement and then throws a dollar or two into a pot.  The money is used to support the various community service projects which that particular Rotary Club has undertaken.  The good news that people share may be an anniversary, a new child or grandchild, a wedding, a success in business, an appearance in the news media, successful surgery, going a vacation, etc., etc.  People smile and congratulate each other.  Most importantly, people celebrate the good things that they are experiencing in their lives. 

So, if you are looking for an organization which creates good news and celebrates all of the wonderful things we experience in our lives, join a Rotary Club in your community.  I am not a Rotarian.  And if I were not already committed to and working with other people on many community projects, I would join in a minute.  Depending on where you are in your life, you may want to consider joining a club.  You’ll have fun, do good things, and create good news.  You can’t beat that!

THANK YOU FROM H.E.A.R.T. (KENYA FREEDOM FOR GIRLS)

WALWORTH-FONTANA ROTARY CLUB

THANK YOU!!

Please let me tell you a little about Health Education Africa Resource Team (HEART).

Freedom for Girls is one of our three major projects and has grown over the past three years to have
reached 59,000 school girls in rural Kenya! See
"
www.africaheart.com"

Through the Freedom for Girls Proqram, girls are provided with four undergarments, twelve month supply of sanitary napkins, and a health manual. These girls receive a health education session that includes: the menstrual cycle, personal hygiene, HIV prevention education and a demonstration of how to use the sanitary towels and dispose of them properly. If not for this program's assistance, thousands of girls would be absent up to five days of school a month due to lack of protection during their monthly cycle.

Patricia and Steve support many projects in Kenya, with their "Time, Treasure, and Talents". For our program they have initiated and fund-raised annually for Freedom for Girls packets for needy girls in Kenyan schools for the last 5 years! These girls were previously missing 5-6 days of school every month. Initially he started by helping girls at a school in Nakuru, Kenya, Patricia and Steve now assist over 2,500 girls in 36 Kenyan schools annually, hence keeping girls in school and improving their chances in life.

Without an education there is no possibility of advancement in Kenya. Your club and the Werner's have donated over $40,000 USD to this project either personally or through fund raising efforts. That is 8,000 girls in Kenya still in school!

Patricia and Steve are wonderful people who have tremendously changed lives of so many young girls in the remote villages on the outskirts of Nakuru. I consider it a blessing to know and work with them. Without their involvement, commitment, passion and friendship, we would not have been able to extend our mission into this part of Kenya and many of these young women would not have this opportunity to succeed at school. We sincerely thank them and your Club for what you have done to improve lives for the less fortunate members of society.

Sincerely,

Vickie Vinkier

HEART Founder/Executive Director
