The Coppell Rotary Club is supporting  Train and Help Babies(t&hb.com) in a fundraising Walk-A-Thon on May 28, 8AM-12 PM at Andy Brown Park East. The event is  being used to create awareness of the difference a newborn life can make in a community and to raise matching funds that can be used for equipment and ongoing training by medical professionals for  best practices to sustain infant survivability.  
T&HB is a Coppell -based community organization founded by local Doctors Prakash Kabbur and Sumana Nanjundachar. The doctors developed the model for training and sustainability while practicing in Hawaii and found the need for this kind of community support in the outer islands where medical care is rare and often widely scheduled.
The T&HB organization has been a part of the Coppell Rotary Club International Service  projects since its inception  and is being supported by RI District 5810, RI District 3170  and Rotary International (rotary.org). The Rotary Foundation focuses on six areas, including maternal and child health along with education,  disease prevention and treatment , peace and conflict resolution,water and sanitation and economic and community development.  Although T&HB's first project is in India the goal is to build a model transferable to any area worldwide where Rotary International and a community need exists.
The Coppell Rotary Club invites all interested parties to join with us in helping to provide the best healthcare outcome for newborns everywhere. Come visit us at at the Black Walnut Cafe on the first and third  Thursdays each month , or join us at one of our activities found on the Coppell Rotary Club home page.

In 1905, a lawyer, a merchant tailor, a mining engineer, and a coal dealer met in downtown Chicago. Rotary's founders initially were looking for an opportunity to build relationships and promote their businesses. A hundred and twelve years later, Rotary has matured into one of the world’s largest membership and humanitarian nonprofit organizations.

The work of Rotary's 1.2 million members combines the building of community connections with humanitarian efforts such as promoting peace, providing clean water and sanitation, preventing disease, and alleviating poverty — challenges that are just as pressing today as they were when Rotary was founded.

Yet, as is true of many large organizations in the world today, Rotary faces the ongoing challenge of staying relevant at a time when technology and organizations new to the NGO space are changing the landscape of philanthropy.

For example, the number of social sector organizations in the United States has increased some 8.6 percent since 2002, while by some estimates there are now approximately 1.44 million nonprofits registered with the IRS. Part of this growth reflects society's increased reliance on nonprofits to fill service gaps in areas where cash-strapped governments are no longer able to deliver on past promises.

In addition, with a greater range of charitable opportunities and new models for fundraising (e.g., peer-to-peer, mobile, crowdfunding), there is increased competition in the nonprofit marketplace for both supporters and donations.

Old. Male. Inflexible. Elitist. Exclusive. Secretive.

These are a few of the responses that non-Rotarians consistently gave in recent Rotary International focus groups when asked what they think of when they hear the words Rotary International or Rotary club. The participants were professional women ages 30 and above and men ages 30-45, prescreened by independent market research firms to include individuals who would satisfy the requirements for Rotary club membership.

The purpose of this research was to learn about attitudes regarding volunteerism and networking among men and women of this age demographic as well as to gain insight into their awareness and perception of Rotary. The results show that while general impressions of Rotary are positive, there is an overwhelming lack of understanding about what Rotary is and what Rotarians do. Most individuals did not view themselves as potential Rotarians even though they maintained the professional requirements for membership.  

Commitment to and interest in giving back to their communities through volunteerism was a common theme among participants. But what do you say to someone who says, “You don’t need to join Rotary to help your community”? Discuss this statement with your club, and come up with a strategy to showcase Rotary club membership as a flexible, unique, and valuable way for younger professionals to get involved in their communities.

Actively addressing the perception of an old, male, inflexible, elite, exclusive, and secretive club — whether any of these words describe your club or not — is an important part of educating the public about Rotary. Think about what this means for your club, and consider the following:


1.  Open participation in a particular service project to the public. Post information about the project on local bulletin boards or online forums, and invite community members to come out and help. The exposure and word of mouth about what Rotarians do will boost Rotary’s public presence, and you might even interest someone in club membership.
2.  Be proactive about making your club and its members more visible throughout your community. Join your local chamber of commerce. Exhibit at community fairs or open houses. Display your promotional materials in new businesses.
3.  Make a commitment as a club to increasing your flexibility. Think again about your response to the statement, “You don’t need to join Rotary to help your community.” How can your club demonstrate that you offer a modern, innovative approach to service? 
4.  Be creative with your community service projects. Try at least one new project every year, and make sure it is meeting an important local need.
