Show us your work in the areas of focus
F or the second year in a row, Rotarians in Vasteras, Sweden, joined together to promote polio eradication with a rubber duck race.
Yellow rubber ducks, sold at the town's summer festival, were launched from a bridge over the local river, with the lead duck winning a prize. The event raised €7,500 (US$10,450) for End Polio Now.
Members of the club added photos of the event to Rotary International's Family of Rotary Flickr group. Rotarians around the world have uploaded more than 900 images of their club projects to the group page.
In honor of Rotary Foundation Month, we are asking Rotarians to share photos of their work in the polio eradication effort and Rotary's six areas of focus.
Flickr is a great way for Rotarians to promote Rotary's commitment to action-oriented service, and to show the world the benefits of giving to The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary on social media
The Rotary Club of Kalyan Riverside, Maharashtra, India, is a frequent contributor to the Flickr group. Recently, the club uploaded photos from a service project that involved painting murals to brighten up several classrooms. "I love the presence of Rotary on Flickr and Facebook. They are useful tools for publicizing club activities and projects," says club member Dinesh Pandya.
Janey Ball, of the Rotary Club of Newlands, South Africa, has used RI's Flickr group to share photos as public relations chair for District 9350 (Angola; Namibia; South Africa). Among the photos she's posted are images from the lighting of the Cape Town waterfront with the End Polio Now message during Rotary's anniversary celebrations.
"The ease of fast, one-site-fits-all distribution has great advantages," Ball says.
