Our District’s global project in 2017-18 is to support World Bicycle Relief; bikes are $147, including shipping. Contributions can be made in 3 different ways:  a) online (see below link) b) individual writes a check (any amount, it all helps) payable to WBR or c) the club writes a check from their treasury.  Note: only the online gifts and checks written by individuals are tax deductible, not the checks written by a club.  You can bundle checks from individuals and mail the group to: WBR,1000 W. Fulton Market, 4th Floor Chicago, IL 60607
 
Add a note that the donations are to be credited to District 6000.  They will send each individual a receipt.  Check out this link! http://rotary.worldbicyclerelief.org/rotary-district-6000  It gives a lot of information and includes a GREAT 3-minute video!
