It was always a challenge finding funding for events and securing donations. Encountering these challenges inspired me to join Rotary, where I could have much stronger financial backing for service around the community. Attending club meetings, I was able to see the impact and power of Rotary. Rotarians have put their faith and support behind me; I feel more inspired and empowered to make a difference. When you join Rotary, you have the backing of over 1 million members that are there to support you and build you up. Rotarians are people of action, and they not only make a difference but inspire others to do so.
