November Brings Thanksgiving and Rotary Foundation Giving

Dian Edwards
District Governor 2012-2013

Greetings to All District 5630 Rotarians!

It is appropriate that during the month of November, when we celebrate Thanksgiving, we also focus on The Rotary Foundation (TRF). This wonderful Foundation began in 1917 when the RI President Arch Klumph announced the acceptance of endowments for doing good in the world – and The Rotary Foundation was born!  With the help of Rotarians like you, Rotary continues to do good by building peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, supporting mothers and children, promoting education and growing local economies.

I thought you might find the below resources useful as you promote our Rotary Foundation to fellow Rotarians, family and friends:

Please also mark your calendars and invite others to consider making a gift on the national day of giving on November 27, 2012, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and “Cyber Monday,” called “Giving Tuesday.” Aligning with the holiday shopping season, ”Giving Tuesday” will bring about a national day dedicated to giving. Let’s spread the word as Rotarians to support The Rotary Foundation on November 27!  More information to come, but I wanted to let you know about this event and help me to start spreading the word.

Thank you for all that you do for Rotary. Let’s make November 2012 Rotary’s best Foundation Month in History!

In Service of Rotary,

Dian Edwards, District Governor

P.S. Remember, the success of Rotary is built on the strength of its club members!
