In kindness & fun!

 

 Inspired for impact with 42 original member applicants in Club #224228

 

INTENTION BACKED IN THE TRUTH: In early 2022, 42 United States Presidential Service Center (USPSC) members, board members, and trustees voted to apply to District 7680 as an ACTION-BASED impact club that meets monthly, reports impact projects and digitally welcomes worldwide members. Under the loving guidance of Governor Nico Iannelli, we received our final approved name and club number of 224228. Fully engaged members provide 40 hours per year of logged service projects to the club. We are a service project of the USPSC that will become a corporate donor-level supporter. You can join us by signing up here.

We're the fun club with dozens of lady members to join where growth is enabled by mentors and coaches. We don't have leaders, employees, or members. We have teammates, mentors, and coaches and disallow the word employee to be used for any reason. We have music, one minute of love, holistic healing, and more in our gatherings. We welcome you to avoid our meetings like the plague - as much as you will want to avoid our dues (set extremely low as it is not how we build money to pay our bills). Coming to meetings is not part of our strategy, nor is attendance requirements - you can join in with our asynchronous video or audio meetings anytime you like and be a fully-engaged member of Rotary. Oftentimes, this leads to even more engagement than ever before. You can watch our gatherings later in the week!

Some projects of our Rotarians in club #224228

  • A $25,000.00 humanitarian grant was sought for Ukraine with our district's help from The Rotary Foundation, Doctor Michael Rodriguez, Patty Freudenberg, Martin Mongiello, Bob Otter, and Nico Iannelli. We used this money to purchase CitizenAID medical kits which were shipped to Poland and District 2231 with DG Piotr Jankowski and his hard-working team.

    Z pomocą fundacji Rotary Foundation, doktora Michaela Rodrigueza, Patty Freudenberg, Martin Mongiello, Bob Otter i Nico Iannelli, starano się o stypendium humanitarne w wysokości 25 000 $ dla Ukrainy. Za te pieniądze zakupiliśmy zestawy medyczne CitizenAID, które wraz z dyrektorem generalnym Piotr Jankowski i jego ciężko pracującym zespołem zostały wysłane do Polski i Dystryktu 2231.

  • Four shipments of almost $128,000 in supplies, medical equipment, wheelchairs, food, and baby food to our new Rotary Club of Global Impact office in Kiev, Ukraine. Distribution took several weeks after President Alexander Muller, as well as Piotr Jankowski of Warsaw, Poland District 2231 and their teams, of the Maritime Motion Club of Hamburg, with team, provided weeks of work to make millions of dollars and pounds of items available across Ukraine, Latvia, Romania, and Moldova. Distribution of the items has taken some time due to so much and handled by Katerina Shyrikova and Faraj Gilyadov of Fenyx Foundation. A special thanks to Istiaque Doza, Adam Blanco, Irina Kopanitsya, Liubym Gerasymenko, Marcelo Garcia, Olena Polishchuk, John Belluomini, Mike Daley, Paula Schwarz, Marius Kreft, Mark Sanor, and the 361 Team!

    Lieferung von Verbrauchsmaterialien, medizinischen Geräten, Rollstühlen, Lebensmitteln und Babynahrung im Wert von fast 128.000 US-Dollar an unser neues Büro des Rotary Club of Global Impact in Kiew, Ukraine. Die Verteilung dauerte Wochen, nachdem der Präsident des Hamburg Maritime Club, Alexander Müller, sowie Piotr Jankowski aus dem Distrikt 2231 in Warschau, Polen, und ihre Teams wochenlange Arbeit geleistet hatten, um Waren im Wert von Millionen von Dollar und Pfund in der Ukraine, Lettland, Rumänien und anderen Ländern verfügbar zu machen Moldawien.

  • We have recently begun working on a water project to see if we can help President Laurel Morris of the Gastonia Rotary Club in Zambia. Based on a request for global help and assistance in Africa.

    Posachedwapa tayamba ntchito yokonza madzi kuti tiwone ngati tingathandizire Purezidenti Laurel Morris wa Gastonia Rotary Club ku Zambia. Kutengera pempho lothandizira padziko lonse lapansi ndi thandizo ku Africa.

  • We have begun to work with Rotary Club Noida of India District 3012 to emulate and replicate our successful 24-hour food bank. Our 24-hour No Questions asked Rotary Food Bank is also a certified Little Free Library. In 2019, we built a 24-hour Food Bank in front of our offices and expanded the library offerings with our Little Free Library system as an authorized library - Charter #27425. We had first started working on childhood hunger issues in 1994 leading up to Childhood Hunger Day in 1995 in Washington, DC with Congress. Our board and trustees decided that we are committed to stocking the Food Bank more like a blessings box with clothing, books, food, drinks, and more. The community has also pitched in by stopping by and dropping off food - which is the most magical thing to see ever!  In 2020, we held a Free Blanket Week that went well and began to accept other items for distribution including clothes, shoes, belts, and advertising coffee mugs from Carolinas Commercial Realty. Anything to help a person in their home! By 2021, we had distributed more than 3,000 free books - many of which were put into other Little Free Libraries as far away as Chimney Rock, NC. A special thanks went out to Pastor Will Upchurch for donating 1,000+ books.

    हमने अपने 24 घंटे के सफल फूड बैंक का अनुकरण और दोहराने के लिए रोटरी क्लब ऑफ इंडिया डिस्ट्रिक्ट 3012 के साथ काम करना शुरू कर दिया है। हमारा 24 घंटे कोई प्रश्न नहीं पूछा गया रोटरी फूड बैंक भी एक प्रमाणित लिटिल फ्री लाइब्रेरी है। 2019 में, हमने अपने कार्यालयों के सामने 24 घंटे का फ़ूड बैंक बनाया और एक अधिकृत पुस्तकालय - चार्टर #27425 के रूप में हमारे लिटिल फ्री लाइब्रेरी सिस्टम के साथ पुस्तकालय की पेशकश का विस्तार किया। हमने पहली बार 1994 में बचपन की भूख के मुद्दों पर काम करना शुरू किया था, जिसके बाद 1995 में वाशिंगटन, डीसी में कांग्रेस के साथ चाइल्डहुड हंगर डे था। हमारे बोर्ड और ट्रस्टियों ने फैसला किया कि हम फूड बैंक को कपड़ों, किताबों, भोजन, पेय, और बहुत कुछ के साथ आशीर्वाद बॉक्स की तरह स्टॉक करने के लिए प्रतिबद्ध हैं। समुदाय ने भी भोजन को रोककर और छोड़ कर आगे बढ़ाया है - जो कि अब तक की सबसे जादुई चीज है! 2020 में, हमने एक फ्री ब्लैंकेट वीक आयोजित किया जो अच्छी तरह से चला और कैरोलिनास कमर्शियल रियल्टी से कपड़े, जूते, बेल्ट और विज्ञापन कॉफी मग सहित वितरण के लिए अन्य वस्तुओं को स्वीकार करना शुरू कर दिया। अपने घर में किसी व्यक्ति की मदद करने के लिए कुछ भी! 2021 तक, हमने 3,000 से अधिक मुफ्त किताबें वितरित की थीं - जिनमें से कई को चिमनी रॉक, एनसी के रूप में दूर अन्य लिटिल फ्री लाइब्रेरी में रखा गया था। 1,000+ किताबें दान करने के लिए पादरी विल अपचर्च को विशेष धन्यवाद दिया गया।

  • Raising $497,550.00 in Nigeria for women farmers.

  • Erasing the only second disease in earth history. In December 2020 and February 2022, we proudly made financial donations to help defeat Guinea Worm Disease, in Africa.  Since 1986, this disease had 3.5 million cases per year and has now been reduced by 99.99% due to help from the Carter Presidential Center Project.  Since starting to work on it in 1986 it now had just 54 cases in 2019.  We have begun to share this work with our strategic partners across Africa, America, and England.
