President's Message
At our meeting on 25 May, the club will welcome our District Governor, Jeremy Wright AM, as our guest speaker. Councillor Dylan Parker, the Mayor of Randwick, will also be in attendance. During the evening we will be able to meet other Rotary members from Marrickville, Rockdale and Maroubra.  Jeremy will talk about  the work of Rotary, both locally and internationally.
The past month has been especially busy with District Assembly, which was very well attended by June, Laura, Ken, Greg, Warwick and myself.  The President Elect conference was also held which I attended.

Last Monday, 16 May, there was a Tri-Club meeting with Rockdale and Marrickville with the discussion centred on strategies to move forward with the Sydney Airport coin collection program.  Also, this week, our members met for an extra meeting to continue planning our strategies for 2022/23 and beyond.  Not only did we look at future projects, but we also discussed donating to overseas projects in the Pacific. 
Mia Bowyer, was our guest speaker last meeting and her tireless enthusiasm rubbed off on our members.  Her next exciting project is to support Sea Turtle conservation throughout Thailand helping save endangered green sea turtles, by fostering baby sea turtles to a more mature stage, giving them a better chance of survival.
Looking forward to welcoming all on the evening.

Our last meeting
The meeting on 11 May was again very well attended by both members, guests and visitors o hear our guest speaker, Mia, give us an insight into her One Earth Marketing initiative.
Mia is a very dynamic woman who cares about people, the world and the environment.

One Earth Marketing is a profit-for-purpose organisation that advances action for social issues through targeted ad campaigns. 

They have impact due to a plug-and-play model that when implemented in a mission-driven company, can multiply leads and dramatically scale the mission of a business. It operates in high-impact sectors including disability, female empowerment, sustainability and aged care.. 

One Earth Marketing has an inclusive employment policy and donates 5% of profits in marketing hours to our chosen charity partners.

Some of the projects that she has been involved with include:

  • World Wildlife Fund set out to restore Australia and provide quick relief where it was needed most. They engaged highly influential, untapped markets of live-steam gamers who helped raise $700,000 for the bushfire efforts through original content and meaningful marketing to their Twitch audiences.
  • Plastics For Change partnered with The Body Shop to create the world’s first fairly traded plastic supply chain, providing jobs for people living in poverty in urban India. The marketing campaign achieved 686 million reach online, was picked up by VICE, Marie Clare and Forbes and increased positive sentiment for TBS packaging by 90%. 
  • Loneliness was a feeling resonating across Australia during COVID-19. For the 20% of the population living with a disability, this challenge deepened even further.
  • She engaged Australian Paralympian Dylan Alcott to connect with people on the Mable platform via video chat, bringing cheer, comfort and beard comparison banter. The activity achieved PR coverage in major publications including Channel 9, Nine Honey and more.
