Making a Difference

Rotary Club of Perth

What do you get for the person who has everything?
 How about something that someone desperately needs? 
This holiday season please consider giving a gift of "Love" act of kindness and selfless service.

The Rotary Club of Perth and 
Swan Districts Rotary
have teamed up to sell 500 sleeping bags which will benefit
 not only Cambodian families in need of income -
 who have sewn these as part of theStitches of Hope project,
 but also benefit some less fortunate people in Perth. 
This is our "boomerang project"...

By "buying" a sleeping bag for a family member, friend,
 or colleague you can support a sector of our community in need
 to give online now


By supporting mental health research you can help the 1 in 5 Australians 
who suffer a mental illness every year.

Rotary Club of Northbridge

What can $100 buy you this Christmas?? 

Movie tickets? A nice dinner out? 

A new toy for your child? 

These are all nice, but why not do something different this year.

 Reconnect with Christmas by giving a gift 
that will change someone's life. 

At the Rotary Club of Northbridge

, we sponsor the education to underprivileged Balinese children
 for $100 per year!
 That's right, just $100 can pay for a child's education, school uniform,
 school backpack and stationery for a whole year!!!! 

And YOU can be part of this. By donating $100 to our Rotary Club,

 we will provide you with a certificate of sponsorship
 and a pamphlet that details where your money is going.
 You can sponsor in your own name or someone else's,
 as a gift to them this Christmas.

Rotary Club of Geraldton

On Wednesday night RCOG had a talk from Brett Williams,
 Geraldton Fire Station's Station Officer. 
He then gave us a tour of Geraldton's Fire Station,
 starting with some heavy duty fire-fighting vehicles and equipment.
 There was even a mock alarm just for our benefit!
 Inside the building it was evident that we were in a state-of-the-art organisation
 which was well placed to protect our community,
 responding to fires as well as other disaster situations.
 The station and others across WA are the result of many years
 of planning and acting on feedback from their team members on the ground
