All Rotarians have that “thing” that pulls at their heart strings.  That humanitarian crisis that makes you say, “we have to do something about this.”  Thirty years ago, a Rotarian said, “we have to eradicate polio, because it’s possible.”  Look at us today – we’re making that possible.
For me, my heart has always gone out to disadvantaged kids. Kids that are victims of their life circumstance, and the odds are stacked against them. 
This past January, I was sitting at a table full of Rotarians from South Africa. They were passing around trinkets made by children living in orphanages. The children make the trinkets and the club sells them to raise funds to support the orphanage. After further inquiry, I learned that the children were all orphaned because both parents had likely died of AIDS.
