Rotarians from Northbrook and Deerfield served dinner to servicemen, servicewomen, and their families at the USO at Great Lakes Naval Training Center on May 6, 2015.  Northbrook Rotarian Jane McCarthy presented a check to the USO to pay for the dinner.  Eight Rotary clubs in District 6440 contributed financially to this service project.

Biz Stone Says This Will Be the Future of Marketing

Forget social media or big advertising campaigns that cost big bucks. The new marketing strategy that's trumping traditional methods is philanthropy.

Most products or services can be purchased from multiple vendors across most geographic barriers. How can you differentiate yourself from the competition? One way may be giving money to charitable causes. Big businesses have been practicing philanthropy for a long time. A survey of large corporations by CECP found that 59 percent of them increased their philanthropy between 2007 and 2012. More companies are realizing that spending money on doing good is really good for business and the bottom line.
 
 

 
 
District 6440 is proud to make available handsome and customizable "Four-Way Test Plaques" for businesses and clubs. Each plaque can feature a color logo of the recognized business or governmental body. Plaques cost $60 plus $7 shipping, with $15 for each plaque being donated to the End Polio Now campaign. Quantity discounts are also available.
 
 
 
You can now search for a Rotary club with RI's free mobile app. In the Apple app store and Android market, it's called the Rotary Club Locator from Rotary International. The app also will soon be offered for BlackBerry phones. Image

Features

The Rotary Club Locator app helps you find a Rotary club meeting when you're on the go.

  • The "Near Me" search locates clubs within a physical radius of 100 miles. (Note: Actual driving distances may be further.)
  • A keyword search for clubs. This search looks for the keyword in either the club name or meeting location address. This is useful for finding clubs that are outside of the 100-mile radius from your current location.
  • A map showing a club's location and driving directions
  • The ability to save search results to a list of favorite clubs
  • The ability to add a club to your phone's contact list
  • The club's website and primary phone number, if available
  • A search function to find clubs by district

News from Rotary International
Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
