Share Rotary Ideals With Children In Your Community
In today’s world, the tenets of The Four-Way Test and the idea of Service Above Self are more important than ever. The Rotary Ideals Literacy Project could be your club’s literacy project and help you share these ideals with the children in your community.

ShelterBox USA
Everyone deserves a place to call home. It is a human right and the first step towards recovery after disaster. Shelter is so much more than just a roof. It’s the foundation for life, families and communities. It is a place to feel safe after days or weeks of fear. It offers protection from harsh weather, privacy, and helps to preserve dignity. It’s a space to heal from trauma.
 
Current need: ShelterBox is deploying an emergency response team to Pakistan where more than 30 million people have been affected by severe floods. Pakistan has been overwhelmed by severe monsoon rains and flooding; the full scale of the devastation is still unknown.

We are calling upon our Rotary partners for financial support. The need is massive, and our response is critical. Homes have sunk in flood water or been swept away, livelihoods have been ruined, tens of millions are displaced, and more than 1,000 people have lost their lives.
 
Donations can be made at our website www.shelterboxusa.org or by mail to P.O. Box 5055 Santa Barbara Ca. 93150
