If you enjoy reading this blog, how about a little something for the effort - between now and Friday, April 25th? Saturday, May 3rd?
After more than 100 posts here at Innovate Rotary!, it is moving for me to look back on all of the email messages of support that I have received from Rotarians around the world. Mostly, people have thanked me for being an innovative, irreverent and sometimes blunt voice for change and progress in Rotary. Many ask for permission to share my ideas with their club or district (which I almost always agree to, with attribution). Not everyone agrees with me. And that is sometimes what it takes to start a conversation for change. And I have engaged in many conversations, both in the comments here and through private email exchanges.
If you got any value from this blog, derived any inspiration or new ideas from this blog, I would like to ask a favor. This is especially for those of you who ride a bicycle, or know how to ride a bike or who sometimes sweat. Buy some awesome ShelterBox USA cycling gear!
I am a big supporter and volunteer Ambassador for ShelterBox, the Rotary Project Partner focused on worldwide disaster relief. Primal Wear came up with fantastic custom designed cycling wear that is available for purchase through April 25th, 2014. The design features a ShelterBox Response Team member on the front and the smiles of some children whose families received a tent and other essentials from ShelterBox on the back. And on the traffic side sleeve (for those of you who drive on the right hand side of the road), there is the Rotary logo, celebrating our partnership.
I would appreciate it if you would buy a kit for yourself, a friend or family member. If you are going to be riding in a charity event or just plan on pedaling around the neighborhood this year, I wonder if you would add one ShelterBox jersey and shorts to your rotation.
We are offering the gear at cost, with no donation to ShelterBox expected. I hope that if a few more people know about ShelterBox and its Rotary partnership that they will support us when the next disaster comes around.
And if you are going to be riding RAGBRAI this year, and want to join me, please add a ShelterBox cycling kit to your packing list! I will be riding 418 miles across Iowa in support of ShelterBox July 20-26, 2014!
