Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and now #GivingTuesday. If you're like me, you may feel that your pocketbook has already been stretched this holiday season -- and it's not even December 1st.

As you know, November is Rotary Foundation Month. We've been sharing with you all month long about the Rotary Foundation and its 100th year milestone of doing good in our world. 



There are many places where you can put your dollars to work. For me, as a young adult, it's hard to decide where because my resources are limited. What I do know, is that any gift, no matter how large or small, is making a difference through the Rotary Foundation. As Sara mentioned last week, the Rotary Foundation is one of the strongest charities to give to with its recognition of being named the 2016 Outstanding Foundation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. That to me shows that this organization is doing something great here. 

Our District has set a goal to have Every Rotarian, Every Year give to the Rotary Foundation. Our club's goal this year is to maintain our giving of $100 per member. We surpassed this goal in the 15-16 year, and I know we can again this year. 

Whether it's today on #GivingTuesday, or December 31st, consider making a gift in 2016 to the Rotary Foundation. Click here to make your donation online. 


Thank you for all that you do in Rotary.
