$1,200 Donation

Rotary Club of Fraserview has sent a cheque and will present a photoshoot cheque of $1,200 to Educating Girls of Rural China this group came in and presented to us at our lunch in February. 

“Educating Girls of Rural China makes a real difference in the lives of young women who would otherwise be left behind and forgotten. It also helps to identify and support the future leaders that China needs. What impresses me most about the organization is its patient attention to each individual girl through every step of her advanced education.”

David Mulroney, Former Canadian Ambassador to China


Guojuan Ren is an orphan who was raised by her grandmother. She is currently in her first year at Liaoning University of Science and Technology. After meeting Canadian Ambassador John McCallum in August, she met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in December 2017.


Donate Half of your Lunch

Donate Half of Your Lunch & Win
Over the past 5 weeks weeks we have raised almost $600!

For this weeks meeting that is cancelled - Donate half of your lunch and enter to win two (2)  $50 gift card to Tim Hortons ... and get a tax receipt for your donation ...two  $50 gift card to support Tim Hortons  .... we will select randomly one of the people that donate ..

By Now during this lockdown you are likely experiencing a couple of things:

1) depressing and stressful that multiple times over the past couple of weeks that we can’t buy simple things ... eggs , toilet paper , other stuff

2) extremely stressful to be locked up and worse when you go out to worry the entire time that you could get sick ....

And there is a tendency to feel like a victim.   But for us this will pass, and right about the time that we are eating hot dogs in a movie theatre or food court .... some People in some countries will go back to normal but normal for them is that they can’t buy toilet paper ever ... many people can’t buy clean water for their kids ....And they live everyday in at least the 2 remaining countries ... with polio hanging over their heads....


Consider donating half of the money you would have spent on lunch to the Rotary Foundation to make a difference. 

We will make your donation on your behalf, a tax receipt will be issued to you by the foundation.

Each person that donates will be entered to win one of 2 $50 gift card from Tim Hortons, so that we can support business in our community.


What can you do in the Lock Down?

As trapped as we are, and as helpless as we might feel at times, we are still Rotary, so what is it that we can do to help?  Here are what some are doing to make a difference:
  • Some people are going on line to buy from stores ... I heard from a couple of people that they are buying gifts from Purdys for Easter and having delivered 
  • Buying gift cards on line is a great way to support business as they get the cash and sending even a $5 card to friends and family helps 
  • Get take out .... it supports the restaurants and in now top heavy in a way of saying thanks for being here 
  • Pay for parking in street meters ... while the city says the streets are free .. we know better right ... every lost dollar will hurt the city and us, so drop a loonie in the meter or use your app 
  • Many Museums and gallery’s have posts for donations, these are facilities for our kids .... and the future ... they have very little funding, so consider donating even $5 or $10 not only will every dollar make a difference but it will make them feel good as well .
  • What are you personally doing to contribute to your circle of influence? Are you re-posting Facebook posts that talk about how we are all doomed ?.. or are you re-posting good news and positive actions people can take ?

Why what we are doing is so important
An infographic that shows the goals of mitigation during an outbreak with two curves. The X-axis represents the number of daily cases and they Y-axis represents the amount of time since the first case. The first curve represents the number of cases when no protective measures during an outbreak are implemented and displays a large peak. The second curve is much lower, representing a much smaller rise in the number of cases if protective measures are implemented.
