Tag Along Tour Tree Planting

This report was recently sent to RI President Ian Riseley

We are delighted to report that 21 trees have been planted at Tennant Creek in Central Australia on Sunday July 9.

The planting was inspired by your call for tree planting.  The project is a wonderful partnership. It includes the Rotary Club of Kununurra who has a Club Friend who donated 21 native trees. The Rotary eClub of Outback Australia who located planting places at the Tennant Creek Show Grounds and at the Country Womens Association facilities. And members of the Over The Top Tag Along Tour 2017 who dug holes and carried out the planting. Governor Elect Greg Marlow, District 9550, of Tennant Creek, was vital to the project in locating the site and in involving the local Work Camp in protective staking and the local Girl Guides in ongoing watering and care.

The Rotary eClub NextGen based in District 9640 has just conducted the 4th Tag Along Tour. This year it travelled from Atherton to Broome and back to Longreach. It visited clubs on route including Atherton, Mt Isa, Darwin, Darwin Sunrise, Kununurra, Broome, Longreach and eClub of Outback Australia. The primary beneficiary being the Royal Flying Doctor Service which is an essential medical service covering 80% of the Australian continent.

Members of the Tag Along Tour represented Rotary Clubs of Takapuna, Tauranga Te Papa, Walcha, Bundaberg East, Broadbeach, Ashmore, Mackay North, George Town, Cowra and eClub NextGen.

We admire the inspiration for this excellent initiative and trust other remove locations will be planted.

Your Member Profile 

At a meeting some time ago it was thought that, given the virtual nature of our club, it can be difficult to know about fellow members. To this end I have developed a short Biography (Rotary Bio Blank)  that can be filled out and emailed back to us. (Just reply to this email)

I completed the form and it took me 8 minutes, so it's not an onerous task. The blank and my example are attached to the email.

Blank Form here

It would be great If you could complete the form with the information you feel OK about giving (nothing intrusive about the information required) and return by reply email so we can put it in the members DropBox.

Guest Speakers:

Dave Drury - 22nd August 

Points for Purpose is a social enterprise that enables people with loyalty points to use them to make a direct difference to the causes they care about. Points for Purpose was established in October 2016, following the generous donation of 68,000 loyalty points that Dave Drury (Founder of Points for Purpose) received from a friend in London. Dave decided to use these points to purchase 6 zero degree sleeping bags that would make a direct difference to the lives of 6 people experiencing homelessness in Sydney.

Points for Purpose featured in a national news story in Australia, and since then more than 2.5 million points from donors around the country using their Qantas, Virgin and Flybuys points have been used to buy sleeping bags for people experiencing homelessness.

How we work:

Points for Purpose is an enabler, connecting loyalty card holders, loyalty programs and charities together for social good. Points for Purpose enables loyalty card holders to use their points to purchase specific products for the causes they care about. These products are gifted to certified charities that Points for Purpose has partnered with. Points for Purpose enables tangible transactions to take place without asking donors to reach into their pocket to use their money.


New Zealand Expansion:

The very sad death of a homeless man in Sydney in early 2017 prompted the release of a song called “How do you sleep?” by Kiwi singer songwriter Ryan Edwards, and the interest from this resulted in the launch of Points for Purpose in New Zealand.
In late July, 2017, Points for Purpose officially partnered with Fly Buys New Zealand and is moving beyond homelessness and looking to make a direct difference to all New Zealanders in need.
With Fly Buys having over 2.4 million members in New Zealand, this is an exciting platform for change.
Points for Purpose is working closely with Fly Buys so we can provide a selection of products that will be of benefit to people in need. As we grow and learn from our charity partners, we’ll develop the product list to provide the most in need items. With more than 20 products available at launch, Fly Buys members will be able to positively impact the causes they care about.
