Recently the Rotary Service Newsletter, that because the funding just wasn’t there, Suzette Ramdanie-Linton was almost ready to give up on a local clean water project that her Rotary Club of Montego Bay Sunrise had initiated in St James, Jamaica. Then, her district governor, Paul Brown, encouraged her to promote the project on Rotary Ideas.
Two weeks after she put a project description and photos on Rotary’s crowdsourcing platform, she received an email from Naude Dreyer, a member of the Rotary Club of Central Cayman Islands. Dreyer was looking specifically for water projects in Jamaica. “It was a perfect find for us,” he says. “Rotary Ideas is a really cool site and a great way to fundraise.”
Rotary Ideas helps clubs seeking volunteers, partnerships, in-kind donations, funding, and connections with one another. More than 1,220 projects have been posted on the platform since it launched in August 2013. Rotary Ideas emphasizes partnerships over dollars. The two Caribbean clubs are now collaborating on another project, to provide dictionaries to third graders in St James.
Through a competitive selection process 15 candidates were selected.

For those Rotarians (you know who you are) who like numbers:
Last Rotary year we lost a net 73 Rotarians. So far this year we started with 1,066 Rotarians and by the end of September we have a net increase of 8!
So let's welcome all those new Rotarians and make sure their experience of Rotary is deep, meaningful and filled with FUN!

Rotarian Action Groups help Rotary clubs and districts plan and carry out community development and humanitarian service projects in their area of expertise. The groups are organized by Rotarians and Rotaractors who are proficient, and have a passion for service, in a particular field

Research quoted says “Books help build a child’s imagination, thinking, talking and listening skills. Children also get to explore colours, shapes and patterns in books, have fun pointing and patting pages, learn to turn pages and listen to sounds and rhythms of words, apart from enhancing useful bonding between parents and the child." If you are looking for an easy but hugely beneficial project give this some thought.
