Why Not Volunteer?

About Volunteering Australia

ABC Radio has partnered with Volunteering Australia and the State and Territory peak bodies for #ABC90for90 to encourage Aussies to come together and help each other out.

Volunteering Australia is the national peak body, and along with the State and Territory volunteering peak bodies work to lead, strengthen, and celebrate volunteering in Australia.

Volunteering Australia’s vision is strong, connected and resilient communities through volunteering. Many volunteers offer their time formally through organisations, whilst others self-organise and volunteer informally in the community. Together the volunteering peak bodies recognise the breadth, diversity and richness of volunteering activity in our communities and how it is evolving over time, they celebrate all forms of volunteering.

Fundraising tandem bicycle ride across the Nullarbor to City of Adelaide South Australia

Tasmanian Rotarians Phil and Joyce Ogden have just departed Tasmania to tackle an epic tandem bicycle trip across the Nullarbor to raise funds and awareness for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign. They are leaving Perth in mid May to ride the 2,750 km to Adelaide.
Phil and Joyce Ogden for over ten years have witnessed first hand the terrible legacy of the Polio epidemic of the fifties and the ongoing threat to children of the world until the Rotary inspired campaign worked its magic over the last 30 plus years.
The couple said “We feel that the enormous effort which has gone into turning the tide of the disease will be lost if pressure and fund raising are not maintained until the disease is totally eradicated."
Please support Phil and Joyce Ogden on this enduring bike ride by donating to End Polio Now at the link below:
For every $1 raised Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation contributes $2 to End Polio Now. So, if the Ogden's are successful in raising $40,000, the total raised for End Polio Now will be $120,000.
See Phil and Joyce Ogden in the below video - their farewell from Tasmania this week captured on the recent Tasmanian 7 News.
We encourage you to give them a warm welcome when they ride into your area:

Covid Response & Rotary

We Need Your Help

Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) is seeking the assistance from District 9510 members to distribute Government funded $500 debit cards to families that have been financially impacted by drought. This includes those currently in drought as well as those recovering from the intense drought of the past few years.

The Drought Communities Outreach Program is now continuing to assist people in rural areas that have been affected by drought. The areas that we travelled through last week are still in drought, a drought that has lasted over 4 years.
Our touring team of Jerry and Briony Casburn, and Sam and Elizabeth Cozens was supported by the Commonwealth Government through the RAWCS organisation to distribute $500 debit cards to drought affected families in Lameroo, Alawoona, Nildottie, Sedan, and Palmer. We made contact with 179 farmers, farm workers, and farm contractors in the first instance to give them a small encouragement boost with the $500, but equally important bring them in contact with a range of other support organisations who were travelling along with us.
In total an amount of $89,500 was injected into the local community, and we trust that the various government and private agencies were able to give advice to support these important businesses in the short term, and planning advice for longer term viability.
This is an example of Rotarians in action.
