The Aviv Vodka Story

SPIRITUALITY IN DESIGN

AVIV 613 Vodka was not created just to make a better vodka. It was created to help bring more spiritually positive energy into the world. It’s a spiritual experience, one that begins not with the first sip, but with the bottle itself-the triangular shape represents the soul. At the base, the bottle begins as an irregular triangle and tapers to an equilateral triangle at the top, representing the journey to perfect one’s character. One side of the bottle is slightly curved, which represents the challenges we encounter throughout our lifetime. VIVA AVIV™

OVER 100 SPIRITUAL, HIDDEN MESSAGES

Hold the AVIV 613 bottle at an angle that hits any light source, and you’ll notice symbols, words, and phrases etched into the glass in a variety of languages. These messages are inspirational, empowering, and spiritual. They give voice to jubilation and the importance of celebrating the things we feel most grateful for.
AVIV is all about celebrating the wonderful things in our lives and not taking life for granted. And toasting with AVIV 613 is a fantastic way to salute the moments to acknowledge and celebrate the people we care about at home and at work.

North Minneapolis Rotary Club is reaching out to ask your help in promoting an upcoming fundraiser and great social activity that our club will be hosting on Saturday, August 20, 1-4 pm.  It is the Northside Ramble, a community event to explore North Minneapolis by bike, foot or car.  The ride will start at La Dona Cerveceria (brewery), and will include a tour of some of the sites of historical significance in North Minneapolis.  (I was amazed how little I knew!)
 
We will stop at the Rotary sponsored "peace garden" as well as at Pryes Brewing Company along the way.  This easy ride covers about 4-5 miles and is led by a local tour guide and several North Minneapolis Rotary members. 
 
The event is a fundraiser for Gotcha Glasses, a project providing free eye screenings and eyeglasses for kids in North Minneapolis. 
 
All are welcome and we truly appreciate the support of our fellow Rotarians!  Tickets may be purchased ($30) at www.northsideramble.com. The event includes a free t-shirt for registered participants, a beer at each of the two breweries and some tasty local area snacks at the Peace Garden.

An initiative to provide prescription eyeglasses to Northside kids with vision impairment
Vision and Academic Performance
The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that 80% of learning during a child's first 12 years is through their eyes. The knowledge gained in the earliest years of school sets the foundation upon which future education is built.
Visual functioning is a strong predictor of academic performance in school-aged children. From reading and writing to using computers and whiteboards, a child’s eye is constantly being utilized in school.
Vision serves an essential role in a child's physical, cognitive, and social development, early detection and treatment of vision problems are crucial to a child’s health and wellbeing throughout their adult years
Vision and Health Equity
Low-income and minority students are disproportionately affected by untreated visual impairments. In underserved communities, 95% of students who need glasses do not have them.
Unmet vision needs and undiagnosed vision disorders in school children, due to the lack of vision care, can cause lifelong health issues including misdiagnosed learning disabilities and permanent vision loss.
Despite common refractive errors being corrected with glasses at a relatively low cost, many students have inadequate access to care, follow-up services, and funds for the eyeglasses they need.
Some health insurance providers cover standard eye exams and vision care only when the condition is considered a medical problem. Eyeglasses, contact lenses, and other eye-care needs are often paid out of pocket, deepening the health disparities for children and families who cannot afford them.
 
Vision Screening at NorthPoint
At NorthPoint, health vision screenings are offered as part of our In-School Health Screening Program. The screenings are not diagnostic; students identified with a vision deficit are sent home with a letter informing the parents that their child needs follow-up care.
Between September and November 2021, NorthPoint conducted health screenings in two North Minneapolis schools (Grades K-8).
Of the 806 students screened, 44% had some form of visual impairment.
Of 359 students who did not pass their vision screening: 20% had moderate visual impairment (20/70-2/200) 3% had severe visual impairment (<20/200)
 
Of the students screened, only 3% wore glasses; for some of them, the glasses they wore were not strong enough to correct their impairments. During the screenings, students verbalized knowledge of their own vision impairments, their families’ lack of funds for eyeglasses, and the social stigmas they experienced as a result.
Removing Barriers:

While there are endless models and ways of characterizing leadership, they all share a core competency of being able to motivate. The best leaders motivate through inspiration. They drive results by helping team members blend individual and organizational purpose in a balanced way.
 
We’ll dig deeper together as a club to think differently about ourselves and in turn those we lead. Simple, easy to remember concepts paired with lots of paired breakout exercises will allow you to immediately apply the learning.
 
In three short sessions, you will head out for summer break knowing more about what motivates you and in turn how to better engage and motivate those you serve and lead. Get ready to have some fun!
