Help ROSNF Identify a Service Project

As Rotarians and Rotaractors, we are about Service Above Self.  As members of the Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship, we are all interested in utilizing social media to enhance our efforts.  To bring these two together, ROSNF wants your help in identifying a service project!

ROSNF is different than a club or district in that our members are all across the world.  As such, our service project might not look like a typical club or district project.  We are looking for project ideas that have both a humanitarian impact and a social media/ web 2.0 component.

One example, for instance, might be supporting a micro-loan through an online site such as Kiva.org.  ROSNF members could contribute funds online via PayPal, help select the loan recipient, and be kept up to date on the progress of the beneficiary.  This is just one example, and we know that members of ROSNF have many more great ideas!

We will be accepting project suggestions until October 8, 2012.  Add your suggestions by commenting on this post, or e-mail Mary Kathryn DeLodder at mkdelodder@gmail.com or via Facebook.

ROSNF members will later be invited to vote and select our project!

  1. Or another option is to support a group of Dutch yougsters who started a project called HOPE XXL: a new vision on the future!
    From their website: http://www.hope-xxl.com//en/
    The world is changing. We are facing new challenges and new opportunities. What do we want our world to look like? And how can we ensure that this vision becomes reality? HOPE XXL wants to offer a new vision on the future. That’s why we developed a manifesto: A list of one hundred statements concerning sustainability, economy, war and peace, international cooperation and culture. We aim to present this as the global youth vision on the future to the United Nations General Assembly. The United Nations will be asked to take the lead in implementing this vision.
    Now is the time to join the global movement. This year we will be developing the European vision on the future, followed by the global vision in the coming years. Be sure to provide your input on what you want for our world. Share your ideas and learn more about participating in HOPE XXL. Join The Future!
