Fun Times with Awesome New Friends
We are all concerned about the bushfires and drought currently impacting a large part of Australia.
There are a number of organisations providing first response assistance and we are incredibly grateful and thankful for all those who are on the frontline helping protect people, homes and animals from the ferocious fires.
Rotaract and Rotary clubs around the country are helping to assists after the first response organisations with recovery and restoration.
With so many people displaced and in need how can you help?
-Donate blood: A blood or plasma donation can help save three lives with blood products used in a variety of ways to help those in need. With the fires many regular donors can’t donate and more people may be in need of blood products. Book your free appointment today online regardless of where you live in Australia. https://www.donateblood.com.
-Donate money: Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) has set up a Bushfire relief project which anyone can donate directly to. There are 10 individual projects currently running with the money raised going directly to the communities who need it most. Click the link here or donate below https://bit.ly/2MNeVN5
-Donate to firefighters: Fire brigades with the Rural Fire Service in New South Wales and Queensland, Country Fire Service in South Australia and Victoria, Tasmanian Fire Service and Bush Fire Service in Western Australia are crying out for supplies and donation so please consider donating money or joining up as a volunteer with your local volunteer brigade.
-Donate goods: In heavily impacted regions there are a number of donation points each with individual requests for help and support. Donating clothes and other items to op shops (like Red Cross Retail Stores) is also a way to help those who have been left with nothing.
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Why Does Rotaract Australia Exist?
A group of District Rotaract Representatives decided to get together to unite, empower and grow Rotaract in our region. Our Main Goals are:
- Connecting people that share our values with Rotaract Clubs across the Australia Region
- Supporting clubs with resources for club administration, events and projects
- Assisting Districts with resources they can use in Club Training, advice on operations and more
- Providing National Training for our incoming District Rotaract Representatives (DRRs) every year
- Uniting and fostering collaboration between members, clubs and districts by bringing people together at events like our Australian Rotaract Conference
Rotaract Australia DRR Training
We are here as a group of united districts, to connect, to empower and to support each other. We have a council, made up of 20 DRRs that represent the members and clubs of their respective district. The power of Rotaract Australia is within the Council’s hands; each year the Council elects the Rotaract Australia Executive. Led by a Chairperson, the executive manages Rotaract Australia’s operations, internal communications, public relations and more, who then report to the Council, but have no voting rights.
We are officially recognised by Rotary International as a Multi-District Information Organisation (MDIO).
