Irons In The Fire
Tasmania's terrifying bush fires took hold in January, Mel Irons set up a Facebook page... The spur of the moment decision became the start of a
social media whirlwind that provided a helping hand to thousands of
people isolated by the fires.
a pleasure it was to have the opportunity of seeing & hearing of your
Social Media adventure on Australia Story , Monday night .
have been a Rotarian for some 40 years & your story is one that so typifies
the Rotary theme of “ Service Above Self “ in such a graphic & proactive
has in Australia over 34,000 Rotarians in 2,200 Groups Nationally so it is a
wonderful resource available in an emergency .
an example worldwide Rotary has been instrumental in delivering the Polio serum
to over 2 billion children to the point where there was annually app. 400,000
cases of Polio worldwide to now where last year there were some 230 cases
reported . India has had no cases over the last 12 months .
have shown, with such ingenuity, that with the proper application of Social
Media so much is achievable in real time.
again congratulations for such a great job well done & good luck with the
next phase of your education. Geoffrey Basser , Rotary Nelson Bay – NSW
